In this episode, Antonio follows up on his newest birthday toy, the Polaroid OneStep2. A recent trip with the instant camera changed the way to have fun with a camera, or maybe he rediscovered how to have fun. Also, he discusses a new and perhaps disturbing trend in automated photo editing and processing: machines that learn what a "good" photograph is and tell you how to fix your flawed images. Something to fear or embrace? Antonio is sure to share his opinion about that. The machinations of the algorithm.

The Switch to Manual guys celebrate their 60th episode; their "Diamond Episode." Antonio and Tom chat about all sorts of stuff: how Switch to Manual started, how the podcast began, what it really means to shoot in manual, some awesome photo book Tom found, and previews of what's to come on the podcast. So grab your favorite beverage and join the STM guys for a great chat between good friends.
Not a real episode, per se; just a filler until Antonio & Tom record their 60th episode in the next week. Until then, Antonio wanted to close out the summer with a short update show talking about an interesting photographic expericence he had this past weekend: getting his and his wife's portrait made in an old fashioned method called a "tintype."
We’re sure you’ve heard this before: which is better, an iPhone camera or a DSLR? There are endless debates about this question. Pixel peeping, increasing megapixels, accessibility, portability, the list goes on. The STM guys don’t plan to rehash this ongoing discussion.
In this episode, Antonio and Tom try to tackle this question from a slightly different perspective; what is it like to actively choose to take photographs using your phone instead of a traditional camera and why would you choose to do so? Because we’re so quick these days to take photos with our phone and not think twice about it, are we handing off our real world experiences to our digital devices? By choosing to photograph the world using a device which you keep with you constantly are you forgetting what you capture and relegating your visual memories to a digital shoebox?

In this episode, Antonio talks about two great art exhibits he went to this past weekend: photographer Irving Penn at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and painter Georgia O'Keeffe at the Brooklyn Museum. Then, in the meaty part of the show, Antonio speaks about what he's really trying to depict when he photographs: reality or feelings? Showing a friend how he processed his photos made him wonder whether he was revealing too much about how he interprets what he sees and photographs. If he's not showing reality then maybe he's showing how he felt.
