MOBILE BEAT #199 – OCTOBER 2018

November 2, 2018 by Dan Walsh
MOBILE BEAT #199 - OCTOBER 2018 What's In Your Toolbox? So, my nightmare is over... OK, that may be an overly dramatic way of saying that this issue is out AFTER Halloween due to difficult circumstances for this one-man magazine production team.

August 29, 2018 by Dan Walsh
MOBILE BEAT #197 - AUGUST 2018 Reflecting on Visuals: Photo & Video in the Spotlight Mobile Beat is certainly a lean, (not so) mean, stripped-down machine these days, so occasionally Publisher Ryan Burger says, "Dan, don't worry if the issue is a little short, let's just get 'er done..." Such was the case with this summertime issue. Unfortunately(?), I was showered with so much great content, on so many different aspects of video and photography as they relate to DJs, that I just HAD to get it all in. But I think you'll be thanking me after you check it out. (Sorry Ryan.) ~ Dan Walsh, Editor-in-Chief REFLECTING ON VISUALS Easy Photo & V... [read more]
