Photo Geek Weekly Episode 49 - Ethics vs. Subjective Reality

For this episode of Photo Geek Weekly, we welcome back Mike “Sharky” James to the discussion. With Sharky’s background in photojournalism the discussion around ethics and morals in photography based on the definition of an image as documentary or as art is well worth listening to. We bring it back to tech at the end with firmware updates from Sony and how they are trying to attract photographers from other systems in semi-sneaky ways. Thanks for listening!
