    In this show @Frederick Van Johnson @Steve Brazill and @PhotoJoseph briefly discuss TWiP’s hiatus, then tear into GoPro and the failure of their Karma Drone.

    3. TECHNIQUE: CONQUERING LOW-LIGHT SITUATIONS

    One of the biggest challenges facing any photographer is the problem of making images in challenging lighting situations. And one of the most challenging situations is low-light. In this segment we will discuss some techniques for taming the shadow beast, no matter what gear you have.

    TheFIX Season 3: Welcome Renee Robyn

    TheFIX Season 3: Welcome Renee Robyn

    Renee Robyn, welcome to your show...

    You may have noticed that lately, we’ve been making a bunch of changes to the TWiP Network, and if you’re perceptive you might be able to discern what’s happening. In short, we are shifting things to appeal to broader audiences and to provide more value to the photographic community. TheFIX is one of our popular shows, and though Photoshop post-processing education is (and likely always will be) important — we feel there are several outlets online that provide stellar training on that topic. There’s Lynda.com, KelbyTraining.com, CreativeLive and the list goes on. Heck, in a pinch you can even learn almost everything you need to know about Photoshop for free using services like YouTube or AdobeTV.



    So, instead of throwing our hat into an already crowded ring, we took a step back and looked at what was missing from the mix. And it became clear that the instructional world is top-heavy with the “nuts and bolts” of software, but there is a huge deficit when it comes to highlighting amazing artists and getting inspiration through their processes and techniques.



    Renee Robyn is a Photographer, digital compositing artist, model, and my friend. I can’t think of anyone more suited to the task of bringing the reality of the digital art world to the masses than she. She’s an amazing person, her artwork is amazing, and when you learn about her story you will be amazed.



    Welcome Renee Robyn, to your show.

    In this episode Seán + Jan tackle questions about which program to use when for photo-editing; whether it's a good idea to organize your existing photos before importing them into Lightroom; the advantages of using adjustment layers over direct adjustments in Photoshop; the three formats that retain layers when you save in Photoshop; whether or not to copy the Background layer in Photoshop; locking the position of a layer during Photoshop retouching; and more.

I Love Getting My Photoshop Fix

I am learning so much from this podcast. I think we can never learn enough about Photoshop and Lightroom to make our images better.
Thanks Jan, enjoying all your episodes

EffectiveTechie ,

Would be 4 or 5 star with video feed

I enjoy the content here, but instead of being able to enjoy with my other video casts I have to go to the website or pull it up on YouTube. The rating is for the podcast as it is today, only audio... But to really make use of it, you need to see what they are doing. Please make this change! You already have the physical video!
