A little house keeping related to the podcast and other photographic news this week. I also answer two listener questions in a monologue episode.

Questions answered in the show:
Ryan Katsanes: "Valerie - Can you provide some tips on how you got yourself so comfortable shooting from the hip? I am trying to do more of it myself, but am having trouble making the leap because I fear I'll miss or have the camera too crooked. I know practicing a lot helps, but any tips on how to fast-track that process are much appreciated!"
Katharina Bonzel: "Do you find that being a female street photographer can be both a hindrance and an advantage in the sense that women might be less threatening than guys, but, on the flipside, people are less like to “mess with” a big burly guy than a small woman? I’m thinking that people might more easily get aggressive with someone they think they can take. I generally find a smile goes a long way, but I also know that I don’t take pictures where I am worried about attracting attention from potentially threatening looking guys."
