I really need your input...
We are considering adding a new dimension to the Weekly Photo Tips family, an (audio) podcast.
It would be a nice addition to the blog, our YouTube channel, and our Flickr group.
There are some things an audio podcast would allow us to do better, like product reviews that don't require a visual demonstration (like books) and interviews. We could include more information in a more enjoyable way.
We have done interviews in the past (with Vincent Versace, Matt Kloskowski, and Kevin Kuboto), but they are written and (to be honest) just a bit "dry". A podcast would be a great vehicle for bringing you more and better interviews.
It would also be something that you could load onto your iPod, iPad, or other smart device and allow you to listen at a time more convenient to you. The podcast would be the part of our community that you could "get and go", enjoying us "untethered" from your computer.
But doing a podcast that our readers don't have an interest in or think would not be beneficial would be a wasted effort.
This is where you come in, our latest survey (found in the top right column of this blog) asks what you think, for your input. So please take a moment, give your opinion, and help us build a better, more complete photography community.
The survey will be open until next Friday (11/4), I look forward to your feedback.
