Updates on my review of the Nikon D750, Is photography Art? A recent 6.5 Million dollar photo stirs some controversy, The D5500 is rumored, skipping the D5400 – you might be surprised to find out why. Lytro cameras now offer focus spread and we answer reader AND viewer questions. This was our first live show and a big thanks to all those that jumped in and commented/shared their thoughts as we recorded. More live shows are in the future.

Discussion:
Is Photography ART? This recurring discussion was brought to the forefront again when Peter Liks “Phantom” sold for $6.5 million and Jonathan Jones of the Guardian had strong opinions that photography is not ART.

ReaderQuestions
Question– body or lens?? What is more important to the overall AF experience?

Do you know how much the 5DMk4 will cost?

Should I wait to buy the Canon 5D III? Is canon going to refresh the line-up?

Would there be an increase in image quality and low light performance going from an XSi to a 7D mk1?

5D MK IV with Sony or Canon sensor?

More towards the business end, for people in portrait photography, what are the best ways to get your name out there other than word of mouth and FB utilization.

I have a crop sensor dslr(70D). For christmas, I have the budget for either, a canon L lens like 24-70mm or a full frame body. What do you recommend I buy?
Are all macro lenses change their max aperture when you focus closer to the subject?

 Happy almost Friday... I had typed "Happy Friday" before I realized it is still just Thursday :/ I am sitting in a hotel room just a short walk from all that Washington DC offers. We start a #mckaylive photo tour tonight and will spend the next week photographing in the region. I grew up about an hour from here and remember an 8th grade field trip where I got soaked running through all the sprinklers on the National Mall and later sat in an IMAX film and froze to death :) #geniuskid Have you been to Washington DC? What's your favorite museum/monument or activity here? This photo is from Sunday evening sunset over Puget Sound - Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND AND new Horizon filter (check my instagram stories for a closer look at this filter) This image is actually a composite - a 2 minute exposure for the sky and a shorter 1/6 of a second exposure for the water.
