We Geeks |

Howard and I spend the podcast giving a run down of our thoughts about all the new technology and gadgets that Google rolled out at this year’s tech event. We also talk about the new Pixelmator app for the Mac, a cool website that has been setup to show the exact location of vintage photos shot in New York City and San Francisco,  the power of Lightroom’s new Dehaze tool, the Canon 5D line of cameras has turned 10 years old, and also the Petzval 58 which is a sweet bokeh-control lens that has raised over $250,000  at the time of this recording. More after the jump!

We Geeks |

Is there a future of Photoshop on mobile devices? How can an artist who takes people’s work and re-purposes it into “his own work” be able to sell it for upwards of $100,000–without sharing this with the person who created the original artwork? We talk about a new browser that could take on Google Chrome, Apple controlling devices around the home, Spotify and video delivery, and the death of Photoshop Touch and the future of Photoshop on mobile devices.

We, Geeks Podcast Ep. 11 – Ten Steps to Becoming a Better Designer

We Geeks |

For the eleventh episode of the We, Geeks podcast, Howard and I spend almost an hour and a half talking about how YOU can make yourself a better designer. Get better clients, get paid more, be happier with your work, and more. Follow these ten steps and you are virtually guaranteed success (hint: it’s not easy and it requires a lot of work). We start by talking about being more creative in general, I share a story about photographing a bomb squad, and we both complain about designers who complain too much.
