What can I say…. I LOVE IT!
So nice to get really short and sweet photography tips like this. I much prefer it to the super long 1+ hour long podcasts that are out there.
Great little show
Loved the Improve Photography podcast and now I love the Photo Taco podcast! Great to get an abbreviated version of a podcast. This will be great to go back to quickly to help me remember specific tips!
If you are into independent music, check out my podcast. Search "Nashville Rocks" on iTunes!
Rock on Jeff and Jim!
OJT in a podcast!
I love the short tips! I take them out on photowalks and quickly apply a 4 minute OJT session to whatever I'm doing. Thanks team!
