"Talking with the Shooters" - Podcast 19

Story Interviewing Ben Long

While on a recent Geek Cruise to Mexico, I had the opportunity to talk with other photographers about their approach to these excursions, including what equipment they used. I found these discussions fascinating, and I hope you will too.

I start off the show by telling a story about one of my adventures in Puerto Vallarta. I then interview Lynn Lampert who had just purchased a Canon Digital Rebel XT. She talked about upgrading to a DSLR and trying to master it on location. Then, Don Tillman steps up to the mic and discusses his Kodak point and shoot. Don had some excellent traveler tips. He's been on four cruises. Then I had a nice chat with Ben Long, who is a friend of mine and who spent the day with me in Puerto Vallarta. Ben is a photographer and writer who contributes to Macworld Magazine and has authored some great books. The photo on this page is me interviewing Ben on the ship (That's Ben on the right).

One of the tools we talked about in the show was an image editor called Graphic Converter by Lemkesoft. I wanted to make sure you got the correct link to this cool app. You can download and try it for free. If you like Graphic Converter, it costs $30.

Very enjoyable podcast. I only wish that you would have had Ben discuss his processing of each day's photos.

As for the next podcast, I'd prefer to hear the techniques program.

Glad you had a good time in Mexico and very glad that you have the pictures, stories, and situations to share with us.

Really great and enjoyable show. I hope that in the future you will do more interviews with other photographers.

For your next podcast I would prefer you went with the ethics podcast.

Hi Derrick, great show this week. I like to hear interviews with other photographers, even amateurs like me, just to get some ideas into what motivates others. I would prefer to hear the ethics podcast next. Thanks for an interesting and helpful show.

Nice one, there is actually some good facts on here some of my associates might find this relevant, I must send them a link, thanks.
