How To Shoot Tack Sharp Images with Matt Kloskowski
One of the most important skills for a photographer to master is how to capture the sharpest, most in-focus image possible when taking a photo. Join Matt Kloskowski as he takes you through all of the factors you need to consider in order to nail tack sharp photos every time. Matt covers everything from how to hold the camera correctly to how to leverage the features and functions of your camera to capture the sharpest images possible. Once you've got the shot, Matt takes you through a number of Lightroom and Photoshop techniques designed to make those sharply focused photos appear even sharper.

Trailblazers: Powerful Women of Photography with Erika Larsen
Erika Larsen is a contributor to National Geographic Magazine, and her work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC, but it is her dedication to immersing herself in the cultures that she is seeking to understand that is so inspiring. Erika literally lives and breathes the cultures she photographs, and sets out not as an outsider seeking to tell the story of another culture to the world, but rather as an individual seeking to deeply understand the people and their way of life. She sees her role as a photographer to be 100% present in the experience she is having, and if she is 100% there, then the shots create themselves.

You can see her interview with Mia McCormick, and the rest of the Trailblazers series for free right here.
