Episode 20 Talking Sony, SD Cards, Lightroom and more w/ Eric McFarland

I sat down with my great friend, wedding photographer Eric McFarland. We've been wanting to hangout and just talk photo for a while now, so we got together and just chatted about a bunch of random topics.

We have bother been interested in switching over to Sony for wedding photography, so we talked about the new Sony a7iii and some of its features.

We talked about some Lightroom tips for editing, time syncing and shortcuts that we use to edit faster and more efficiently.

We talked about ways to prevent SD Card errors and how to back up your images.

Lots of great topics and stories in this one!
