This week is new Q&A and Photo challenge episode and I invited another podcaster friend, Sonny Portacio, to co-host with me.
This episode of Hit The Streets is brought to you by WHCC. I've trusted WHCC with all my printing needs for over 15 years and I couldn't be happier with their awesome service. Take a quick look at the video below of my visit at their lab when my exhibit stand outs were being produced.

Who is Sonny Portacio?

From his early days developing prints in darkrooms to the mastery of digital tools, he’s always had a passion to bring out the best from every image. A professional working photographer, Sonny is the owner of a local San Diego photography business and is also the creator of Pocket Lenses, a website devoted to teaching photography techniques and skills using lightweight, mirrorless camera gear.

This week we answer questions sent to us from Babas Hariri and Georgios Sideras.
Babak Hariri: "How close do you get to people without them noticing you when shooing on the street? Which limits do you never cross?"
Georgios Sideras: "I live in Stockholm and the weather here's not really helpful. I do not mind the rain and the snow and I don't like to find excuses but I love photographing light and I always hear you talk about how great photography is to always follow the light. The problem is that Sweden has overcast weather 7 months a year and all my outdoor shots tend to look very boring from a lighting perspective. What can I do to make a shot look more vivid? I like moody shots but I really want my photographs to make people happy sometimes."
Congratulations, they will each receive a beautiful handcrafted camera strap of their choice from our friends at LF Photo. Please visit LF Photo at http://www.lfphoto.ca/ and give them some love!
