Show #30–Scott Wyden Kivowitz

Host Mike Howard and Tim Kemperle  are joined by Photographer Scott Wyden Kivowitz for Show #30.  Kathleen Bowie had the night off.  Scott discusses various topics ranging from HDR to Tilt Shift lenses.  Scott also gives away the onOne Software Perfect Photo Suite 6 to a person in the Live Chat room.


Mike continues to experiment in Manual shooting mode and is pleased with the results.  A quick pole in Chat shows majority of people are shooting in Manual Mode.
