    Quote of the day: "We're over-processing our images. We're using too many actions to over-compensate for our lack of ability… I don't mean that in a bad way".

    I'm kinda with you on this one, Kerry… I take that in a bad way. In fact, I can't see HOW it can be taken in a good way. I like your tempering of Jason's statement, and I'm not denying his assessment of the current trend, but that last part kind of kills me! 🙂

    Anyways, great interview. I'll have to check out Jason's stuff more thoroughly cause he's got some amazing work!

    • The comment should be "some people overprocess their images to compensate for lack of ability" and there are certainly people who fall into that category. The trend is to "fix it in photoshop" which IS a bad thing. Get it right in camera is my mantra. Certainly Photoshop, Lightroom, Actions, etc can improve images, but you should start with a good image to begin with.

    Nothing is bad as long as a client likes it and will pay for it.

    Thanks, Always enjoy your programs. by the way where are the 25 DVDs? I clicked around, but I missed it.

  5. Ken Lewis says:

    Also did some body mention a site to sell fine arts prints? Was that this show or another?

    I just listened to the podcast and then searched HARD to find the DVD's and couldn't, until coming here to find a link in the comments section. Doesn't seem like Jason really wants to sell them. Also, based on the podcast comment about the DVD cost, I was expecting something like $ 50, not $ 150. Oh well.

    The book mentioned it great but I would highly recommend getting from Audible.com and listen to it. That makes the commute alot more productive and the narrator does a really good job. The book is on sale right now for 8.50 – http://www.audible.com/pd/ref=sr_1_1?asin=B002V5B
