My Nik Radio Interview with Scott Sheppard


I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Scott Sheppard for Nik Radio. It was a blast visiting with Scott and he is a gifted interviewer with quite a personality. We discussed my recent discovery of Nik Software and how I am introducing it into my post capture work-flow. There's a few good tips and a description of my Gannets Galore photo tour / workshop / safari. Be sure to grab a cup of coffee and give it a listen to hear some stories, tips and techniques. Thank you Scott and Nik Software (Use the coupon code "cdodds" to save 15% at the Nik store).
