Tim and Renee open this episode with a discussion of how to prepare for a photo trip, especially when there is a short amount of time between one trip and the next. They then address questions from photographers about accurate color in landscape photography, organizing folders for a more streamlined backup, upgrading to a larger hard drive, how a reference card that is similar to a gray card but contains many different colors works, and how to overcome challenges with "missing" photos in the Lightroom import process.

In this episode recorded in the Tuscany region of Italy (at a vineyard during grape harvest, no less), Tim and Renee start with a chat about focusing on smaller subjects photographically when the weather and broader landscape aren't cooperating. They then address questions from photographers about color management and image mismatches, why detail isn't always obvious in a photo even when it really is there, whether to capture as TIFF files in the camera, using Photoshop's approach to Color Balance in Lightroom, and model releases for restaurant photography.

This episode of the Ask Tim Grey Podcast was recorded on location in Rome, Italy, and so naturally Tim and Renee open the episode with a discussion of approaching Rome from the perspective of a photographer. They then address questions from photographers about hiding pushpins from the map in Lightroom, deselecting all photos in Lightroom, whether it is a bad idea to convert an image to the Grayscale mode, enlarging an image for printing, and whether certain tonal adjustments are duplicative in Lightroom's Develop module.

Tim and Renee kick off the podcast with a chat about a "wild" story (pun intended) of photos that were deemed to be in the public domain because they were self-portraits taken by a macaque. They then address questions from photographers about Smart Objects in Photoshop, issues with flattening photos, using a color checker or gray card, autofocus modes, and the concept of layers in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.
