Something secret this way comes

I have it on good authority that a “You know what” arrived in Tubingen last week for the Workshop #2. Most of the package was cookies (that were probably finished in the first couple hours), but there was this little package of other things in there. And as John & Chris mention in Show 201, there was this DVD with directions and these Chris Marquardt masks.

I’ve posted a web sized version of the contents of the DVD directions in the TOP SECRET area over in the TFTTF Forums. You have to be a member to look at things in the TOP SECRET area. So if you aren’t already a member, this might be a good time to sign up and check it out.

The participants: John Arnold (Photowalkthrough), Jeff Curto (Camera Position), Ibarionex Perello (The Candid Frame) and Chris Marquardt.

We have decided to give the roundtable discussions their own podcast feed as opposed to including it in the individual member feeds in order to avoid duplicate downloads for those who have subscribed to more than one shows from the photocast network.
