On this episode: what looks like lava flowing down the face of El Capitan, G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome), and a lot of talk about light. We’re talking with Sapna Reddy, a landscape photographer based in Northern California. She is currently pursuing dual careers as a photographer and a physician. As a radiologist she studies images in an attempt to establish diagnosis and cure the human body.
