Released Wednesday, 8th February 2012
Good episode? Give it some love!
It's hard not to want to hate Robby Cavanaugh – fresh out of school, the SoCal boy has already been published in Vogue Italia, won a bunch of awards, and now has another notch in his belt as our first TWiT Photo Guest Quest winner. Yet, Robby's incredibly down-to-earth and just has a natural artistic talent. Joining us live in the studio, the fine art photographer comes clean about Photoshop in his "phantasmagorical" images and achieving artistic excellence with very, very little gear, and lots and lots of perseverance and perspiration.

Judges Zack Arias and Tamara Lackey crack the whip on the portfolios of Guest Quest winners, and give invaluable advice to contest aspirants.

Robby's Tips
  1. If you can think it, it can be done.
  2. Be vulnerable and honest with your work.
  3. Photoshop is not a dirty word, but it can be.

Hosts: Leo Laporte and Catherine Hall
