When I started to listen to TFTTF I wasn’t aware of all settings, modes that a camera could have and the ones that I knew I didn’t know how to use them. I have learned so much from the 84 shows in 2005. Chris, please continue with this wonderful, educational, and fun podcast. Oh! And please everybody join us in the forum and you will see that even the first time camera user will be posting articles in no time.

One can learn more from just a few of Tips from the Top Floor episodes than attending a weekend long photography workshops that may cost hundreds of dollars. This podcast clearly explains everything you need to know about digital photography in a fun and quick way. Most shows are about 15 minutes, a perfect length which doesn't waste or eat up your free time. If you must listen to only one photography podcast this is it.

Whether you're just starting off in photography, or you've been around the block a few times, this is the show for you! Host Chris has a knack for explaining photography jargon in a way that anyone can understand. Hone your skills and have a good time doing it with photo assignments, sound seeing tours and Photoshop tips.
