#113: A Day Late & A Dollar Short



This week, we begin with a discussion about gear – specifically how newer crop-sensor cameras compare to full frame and why more megapixels leads to bigger, but not always better images. Plus Tom Cruise as a metaphor for refining yourself away from a borrowed life. This week we’ve got two Photographers of the Week – Robb Kendrick and David Stoecklein – both shoot similar subject matter, yet their results are at opposite ends of the spectrum.
