Kirk’s Picks No. 2 – Lake Pictures, Lucinda Devlin [Photobook]

My pick this episode is Lake Pictures, a book of photos by Lucinda Devlin. This book is a series of photos of Lake Huron, showing the water, the sky, and the horizon on different days and at different times. It is very relaxing to look at.

Theme music: Honest Labor, composed and performed by Timo Andres.

PhotoActive Podcast, Episode 94: All About SD Cards

You can shoot the most amazing photos using the best gear you can afford, but it doesn’t mean anything if the pixels you capture aren’t saved to a storage card. In this episode, Kirk and Jeff talk about SD cards: what do the symbols on the card stand for? What speeds are good? How best to transfer images from the camera to the computer? What capacities should you buy? If your camera includes two card slots, do you write to them sequentially or for simultaneous backup? And how in the world did Jeff manage to shoot a Hawaiian sunset and end up with zero images?
