    Photoshop and Image Manipulation

    Photoshop and Image Manipulation

    Has the ability to Photoshop images become too easy? At what point during manipulating a photo does it stop being a photo and become a digital work?
    What are the ethical ramifications of AI image and video editing software that makes it possible to create deep fakes or entirely new "people" who don't actually exist?
    I talk with Photoshop tutor and digital artist, Andrew Kavanagh to explore these questions and more.

    Photo Industry Code Words

    Photo Industry Code Words

    On this very funny episode of The Nerdy Photographer Podcast, Steven Van Elk from the Wedding Photo Hangover Podcast drops by to discuss photo industry 'code words'. Code words? What code words? The photo industry has code words?
    You know, the things that photographers and people in the industry like to say when they really mean something else. For example, when photographers use the term "unphotogenic" to describe subjects they personally don't think are attractive. Or terms like "challenging" or *shudder* "vibes"...
    Tune in as Steven and I try to decode the photo industry vernacular...

    Cloud Photo Storage Options

    Backing up your photos should always be a priority, and in recent years, more and more cloud photo storage options have become available to photographers. But are they all worth the money? In this micro episode (nerdlet) of The Nerdy Photographer Podcast, I explore a variety of cloud photo storage options, their pros and cons, and whether you can use them for more than just backing up your pictures. Because, in this age of connectivity, having some versatility in your storage is also a must.

Fantastic content!

Casey really delivers with The Nerdy Photographer! I am by no means a photographer except for funsies with my phone. But he made me feel like even I could produce quality photos with his tips, tricks and suggestions.
He also opened my eyes to something I hadn't realized I was completely blind to, which is representation of non-white, non-supermodel figures in stock photos. As soon as he and his guest began discussing it, it was like one of those moments where your life flashes before your eyes. My mind flashed through photos I'd seen, and I could not pick out a face that wasn't an idealized white image. This is definitely a topic that deserves more attention.
And to top it all off, the sound quality is fantastic, and Casey has a smooth voice that is so easy to keep listening to. Definitely would recommend this podcast to anyone!
