It's only fitting that a podcast inspired by photography phrase - "Black Balance" - would find themselves in @SkyboxCinema & @TheExpertease's living room interviewing The LxVE Collective - a group consisting of two photographers & videographers, a creative marketer, and a music artist.
When I first stumbled across the podcast, what caught my attention was the clean aesthetics of their Instagram posts. It turns out the two ladies hosting the show have design backgrounds. @Carolleerose, who typically snaps the photos, has a great eye and is excellent at capturing people in their element. Her co-host, @TheCameia, is a designer pro and an expert conversationalist. This connection was created 100 % on social media and is just one example of the reoccurring theme in this episode: the internet is incredibly powerful at bringing people together and fostering collaboration.
From the start, we begin discussing our individual endeavors and the conversation quickly began to flow in many directions creating such a cool vibe in the room. Cameia keeps the show moving by asking great questions which leads to some interesting stories about how LxVE was formed and how each member took a leap of faith into their chosen fields.
