Episode 303

This week’s podcast topic came about because of some maintenance on the car. It came time for new brakes, and the tire light kept coming on even though the tires were fine. As I dug into the manual about causes for the tire light, I came across the scheduled maintenance list. As I got to thinking about how that works with the car, it occurred to me that something similar might be good for photography.

I think there is maintenance for both camera equipment as well as our digital assets workflows. I started to think about all the things that I currently do and should do to make sure my investment in gear and workflows are as healthy and organized as possible.

As always, I hope you and yours are safe, and please remember to keep safe and wear your mask.
