Digital photography isn’t something I consider easy to teach verbally. Examples and text tend to go a long way toward helping people master the art of taking good photos. My preconceived notions lead to a great surprise at the ability of Tips from the top floor in conveying photography concepts in an audio-only format. The show has over 30 audio tips online and creates a rather unique relationship between the audio show and the online audience. Instead of just providing tips, show host Chris Marquardt assigns lessons to listeners, who then post their digital compositions in conjunction with the assignments. It’s like an ad-hoc photography class done on demand, on your own time table. Download individual tips or subscribe as a podcast to receive new audio tips and assignments automatically.
