    I have taken a class in the past. I downloaded presets for Lightroom and really enjoyed them. I recently changed computers and have been tweaking my Lightroom to get it back to how I liked it. I cannot figure out how to retrieve your presets. Would you have a record of my prior purchase? what would you recommend for me to do?

    Your podcast is the best photography podcast, However, since you went back to the 2 person with Darin, your audio is not as clear as it was. Darin’s voice is crystal clear but yours seems a bit unclear. I am wondering if it is my equipment (iPod Touch 16 GB) or something else.

    Keep up the good work as I look forward to your podcasts each week.

    Thank you.

    How about addressing the correct way to clean a DSLR sensor. I was recently at an airs how with my Canon 50D with my 70-200 lens. Got some great shots, except for the sensor dirt that appeared in post. I’m hesitant to clean the sensor myself. Should I be?

    Also, I’d like to use this same 70-200mm lens on my Canon 6D at air shows, but don’t want to expose my sensor to dirt. I’ve heard that the quality of photos from full frame cameras will exceed those of crop framed cameras in venues such as this, even if you have to crop them in. Better to take the full frame only and switch lenses, or take the crop frame with the long lens and
    switch camera bodies?

    Thanks for your opinion on this. Love your podcast…

    Just found the pod…really entertaining while I work and informative.

    I just bought my first camera, (Sony a6000) after a year of having interest in photography. Now my problem is finding time to practice and find inspiration. (other than shooting my kids) I have 2 little kids and when I’m not working I’m with my kids.

    How does someone with kids find time and inspiration to shoot anything other than their kids? Or what can I shoot while I’m with my kids even…
