Welcome to episode 224 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast!
This week on the podcast I was joined by Chris Murray, a professional full-time nature photographer living in Syracuse, New York. Chris' photography predominately features the the woods, lakes, mountains, and streams of New York State. Chris is a geologist by training and his lens is typically focused on quiet scenes of nature in his own backyard.
Chris and I discuss a variety of topics this week, including:
