Informative, Interesting and Fun
Today's podcast was the best. The hosts have developed a chemistry and the show has a good mix of subjects. Not only questions and answers but interesting interviews. I just wish they would produce them more than twice a month. Great job Rick and Juan, Thank you.
I really enjoy Rick and Juan's podcast.
Their willingness to share and teach from their experiences as phenomenal photographers. The interviews are windows into the creative minds of photographic genius. What an incredible opportunity.
They bring the complexity of image making to a level that I can understand and feel motivated to get out and try new ideas. I admit that most of my images are lousy. But, in time step by step. I am improving and I owe that the DPE.
Amazing that in these times so much info is available and at no charge.
Keep up the good work Rick and Juan!
Hoping to meet Rick at the NIK Summit. Met him once years ago and his was the first Digital Photo Book I ever bought.
Thanks very much DPE. Can't wait to grow with the program.
A DPE bonus
I love the DPE Podcast, and the videos are an added bonus. They offer a mix of tutorial/lessons as well as a video hightlight of Rick and Juan's photos and videos. The audio part of the DPE Podcasts are great, but having some video podcasts to watch makes it even better. Thanks for the great shows, guys.
