There are all sorts of shenanigans going on in the photo industry these days and we’re gonna cover some of it in this episode. To start, Sharky and I bring up a thoughtful article about whether we, as photographers, are experiencing an over-sharing epidemic. While the title of this PetaPixel article may be a bit melodramatic, there are some reasonable points that author, Caleb Kerr, makes about our tendency to want to capture everything happening at every moment and from every angle. While the crux of Caleb’s article stems from 360-degree cameras, we feel that it can be applied to other forms of image and video capture.

Next, we cover a peculiar story about Canon EMEA using a clearly composited photo with a large component coming from a photo taken by Elia Locardi. There are a lot of moving parts to this one, so definitely give it a listen. Finally, we’ve got another solid entry in our “What’s On Your Gear Shelf?” series. Enjoy!
