TWiP 411 - Gray in Black & White
This is one of our more important episodes. TWiP guest +j.m. giordano was roughed up by Baltimore PD, and we discuss that and the role of photojournalists in covering (and being a part of) the news. We also discuss the idea of the Apple Watch being a photographers best friend. Featuring Joe Giordano, +Martin Bailey , +Jeffrey Totaro , and +Frederick Van Johnson +This Week in Photo (TWiP) 
On this episode of TWiP, J.M. Giordano, Martin Bailey, and Jeffrey Totaro join Frederick to talk about J.M.'s treatment at the hands of the Baltimore Police while covering the Freddie Gray riots . Also, is the Apple Watch a photographer’s best friend? Photofocus’ Doug Daulton thinks so...

I was a bit disappointed that you allowed Mr. Giordano to climb up on a soapbox about the incident from start to finish. What he did fail to convey was that Mr. Gray was a career felon that ran when making eye contact with Police he knew and that knew him. People usually act naturally, so if you are a Police Officer and a known felon sees you and runs, what would you do and assume. When frisked he was in posession of a switchblade. That's why he was arrested. He did not deserve to die and arguably none of the others did either, but all would be alive today had they listened to Police and / or not taken an aggressive / suspicious action. I love your show. Maybe try and keep it more photo based rather than this episode. After all of the episodes i've listened to, #1 to this last one and I'm only disappointed with one, I am very very happy. Oh sorry also not happy with the Derrick Story show how he gushes over Cuba and lives the happy go lucky life as a tourist there while the people live in misery. I'll bet he bought a Che T-shirt not knowing that Che was a murderer.

Google updates it's mobile photo editing application - Snapseed. Is it the best mobile editing app? Plus Lensbaby releases a new manual focus lens and Polarr offers a new online photo editing experience.

You guys butchered the Lensbaby way too much. What it seems like you are thinking is that it is made to always be soft. But if you watch the video, you will see that it is built with very sharp optics and can be stopped down to limit the "velvetyness" for a unique, sharp picture. That is what I think is so cool about this lens. It has so much versatility, just in the look and feel it produces.
