Happy New Year everybody!! On this episode Chris talks about goals when it comes to presenting your work in public and what they entail. Tom is interested in a sharpening workflow and Chris spills the beans about his own (barely existing) sharpening workflow. Also, the little robot from the podcast The Future of Photography finally has a name. Thanks to everyone who helps with their suggestions.
