I have a big ole hug for thehanterman1. He says my video put him to sleep. I also have a big ole hug for snapjockey. He said my video sound was "crap". 

You ought to save some hugs for your haters, too. 

I just read the book "Hug Your Haters," by Jay Baer. With his subtitle, "how to embrace your complaints and keep your customers," Jay is clearly speaking to business owners and marketing professionals. 

But I wondered, doesn't this message apply to photographers as well?

Part of my ritual when I return from my weekend workshop is to do an After Action Report. It’s an old habit from my Army days where you document what you learned after each exercise, and more importantly, what you can improve.
 
After my most recent trip, I also thought about some random photography principles as part of my lessons re-learned.

Let's get the easy answer out of the way first. No Steve Heiner is not giving away free Nikon DSLRs.

As Nikon's senior technical manager, Steve has answers on just about every other question you might have about Nikon cameras and lenses.

If you have ever wondered how Nikon decides what technology to include in the upcoming DSLRs, why you should spend more money on Nikon lenses rather than off brand options, or what Nikon was thinking with their mirrorless line, Steve answers all these questions and more.

In this episode of the podcast, I wove your questions and mine into a very interesting 45-minute conversation. Canon shooters might even find it interesting.
