"Insecurity Blanket, Photokina, iPhone Story" - Digital Photography Podcast 338

What's the biggest drawback to being the Nimble Photographer on photo assignment? Perception. If I show up with anything less than a big gun, will clients and participants take me seriously? I explore this phenomenon in the first segment of the show.

I then start laying the ground work for my trip to Germany in September to cover Photokina and Oktoberfest. If you're not all that familiar with Photokina, I provide some good context to help bring you up to speed.

And finally, I have a personal story that involves my iPhone. I know the best camera is the one you have with you, but I never expected this. And there's more... in this week's TDS podcast.

Very sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. Your story illustrates well the power of the photograph to tell a story. I am sure that the image you created will be treasured in your extended family for a long time to come. Thanks for opening up and sharing this with us.

Derrick, thanks for sharing your story, and my condolences on your mother in law's passing.

Thanks for your comments. Things are hard right now, for sure. And at the same time, I appreciate life more than ever. That was Linda's parting gift.
