Inspired by last week's episode about "How to tell if you suck at photography," Scott and Matt got down to business this week and held their first ever "blind critique" episode. No… they did not blindfold themselves. Instead, they asked viewers who were interested in having an honest critique (no Flickr hugs here) to submit photos the day before the show. What followed was an honest and frank discussion that benefited everyone who was able to embrace the honesty and listen. Those who did came away with two major realizations, the need to learn how to "get it right in the camera" and the understanding that it's ok to use Photoshop to remove or fix what they didn't get right. Due to the overwhelming response to yesterday's show, there will be more episodes like this in the future! Keep an eye on Scott's G+ account for more notifications to submit photos for future critiques!

Today's topic: “As photographers, what do we gain by doing things the hard way?” got everyone thinking about plugins. Is it wise to use them without understanding how to process without them? Is it expected since it saves time and gets you back to shooting faster? Is it cheating? Is it more important to take a "purist" approach? Does any of it really matter? Of course there are no right answers, just thoughts and opinions… and there were a lot of them on the live blog discussion. Plus, Scott and Matt fielded a bunch of "ask us anything" questions.

Austrailian-born wedding photographer Jerry Ghionis joined Matt Kloskowski in the studio for what will go down in history as one of the "Best. Grids. EVER!" Sure, it took us a little while to get to the subject of photography, but the hilarity in the beginning actually reinforced the reasons (that soon became evident) exactly why Jerry is an amazing and successful photographer. The audience that waited for the wisdom came away with an aching belly from the laughter and an enlightened idea on how to approach their clients AND their marketing. One memorable quote, "Money without time is nothing." BONUS: Jerry would like to offer all Grid viewers a $100 discount on an Ice Society membership with the code: ICESALE (good for 2 weeks). All links are below. PS: Side note to "Raul" who asked a million times… After the show, Jerry told us that he handles wedding shoots where he doesn't speak the language by asking a translator to tell the subject to mirror his directions. He also said that his tone of voice will help a lot in giving directions even if the subject doesn't know the language.
