at which point her comment was something to the effect of “it doesn’t take time! Just shoot and give the people the shots on USB and you’re done.” That turned me off….

Spend 6:15 looking at the beginning of this:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AoaNMWvfZE

He introduces himself, then says he shoots and delivers the images right out of camera — to People Magazine.

I can’t comment on tack sharp, her web page photos are too small and Facebook is not the best platform but what I saw looked pretty sharp, considering.  Certainly reasonable DOF and her subjects looked pretty good.  I saw some keystoning but I see that with almost everyone who uses a regular lens and delivers directly from the camera.  It is a pet peeve of mine, but there are times the keystoning looks better than fixing it.  Sometimes partly fixing it is the best compromise.  If you go through http://bobanddawndavis.com/, you will see keystoning in their images.  I doubt B&H would invite him to speak if they thought he was clueless and he would not have lasted in the news industry either.

I took another quick look through her photos and didn’t see any where I thought she missed the exposure of her subject.
