Darlene Hildebrandt: Digital Photo Mentor

“When you show what you’re working on, whether it’s a photograph or a website, to somebody else and they see something completely different, that’s their perspective.  So I think sharing your work with others is key to learning and growing.”-Darlene Hildebrandt

Digital Photo Mentor

I’m a communication expert so of course, I think the words are important.  Ideas presented without images can get lost in a sea of words, but at the same time, an image without words, a image can be lost to ambiguity. If you’ve seen me present a keynote or seminar then you already know I’m big fan of unique photographic images with a few words sprinkled on top.

That’s why I invited Darlene Hildebrandt as my guest today.  She’s been a photographer for over 25 years and now she’s dedicated to helping ordinary people learn how to use their SLR, to take better photos, and to really enjoy photography.

    I enjoyed this podcast episode and I wonder if you can tell me the source of your research quote saying that we process visuals 60000 times faster than text.
    I had not heard this before. Also the one about images decoded simultaneously.

    Your,podcast is one of my favorites!

    Than you.
