Recently dubbed by HDR photographer Trey Ratcliff as "one of the godfathers of the photographic industry" - Rick Sammon joins the Digital Convergence photography podcast to talk about his latest projects. Rick talks about taking the plunge into video using his Canon 5D Mark II and 7D on an upcoming trip to China. Rick discusses some of the challenges that still photographers must adapt to as they transition to video - including camera stabilization and getting good sound.

Rick talks about his new iPhone 24/7 Photo Buffet and future plans to support the iPad. We talk HDR basics - including shooting tips and post-production tips using Photomatix and Topaz Adjust. Rick talks about his passion for photographing people. He shares many of his memorable one-liners and tips.

Talking with Rick was inspiring and fun! I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did.
