Episode 015 – Pretty. Ugly. and #AskNNPS

In Episode by nnps2 Comments

It’s sorta wild that we’ve made it to Episode 15! You could say we’ve quindecupled our episode output. In this episode, your hosts tackle a story recently shared on PetaPixel about a photographer who used a national home improvement store location as the set for a photo shoot. The results turned out beautiful but there were some larger questions about whether it should have happened in the first place that we wanted to bring up. It’s a solid story and we think you’ll enjoy it. That’s followed by the first in what we’re hoping is a growing series that we’re calling #AskNNPS. We received a thoughtful question via Twitter from a listener and we felt it was certainly worth a segment on the show. We’re hoping that you take advantage of this by tweeting us your own questions or topics using #AskNNPS. We’ll happily cover our favorites, so keep the suggestions coming!

  1. How come the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II didn’t get any love as a sports shooter? It’s a great bird shooter according to some like Scott Bourne, so maybe sports is a possibility…..
