PhotoNetCast #84 – Micro Four Thirds and other mirrorless systems

No mirror? No worries Micro four thirds and other mirrorless systems have been on the market for many years, but recently the level of adoption of these once frowned-upon cameras has been very intense. On this episode, we discuss why would a photographer want a mirrorless system when compared to the tried and tested quality of a dSLR. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the systems, and what is making them so attractive that professionals are now switching and using the mirrorless has their main camera? In the discussion we also touch up on the history of the system, compare a few prices, and talk about the range of lenses available and the Electronic Viewfinders (EVF). On the news, what about a newspaper without photos? French newspaper Libération published an issue with white space in place of images, in support of photography and photojournalists.Photo credit: British Journal of Photography We also discuss the Panono, and how the Art Center College of Design, Passadena, started offering courses focused on old photography techniques, hoping to improve the digital photography of the students. We rounded the show with a few listener questions. Any feedback or suggestions? You know how to get in touch. For now, enjoy the show…

PhotoNetCast #59 – Standing Out with your Photography

The Importance of standing out with your photographic work In this episode we have as guest Scott Liddell to help us in the discussion. Scott is the anonymous now not anonymous anymore author of Dark Edinburgh. This site, although small in scale, has been gaining some notoriety around the local photographic community, and one reason for this might be the focus Scott has placed on it, showing a darker side of the city, that you won’t get on the guide books. From a lengthy conversation with Scott about the story of this site, I thought it to be a fairly good example of the importance of standing out with your photography and invited him to join us on the show. Besides the discussion, we talked about iOS 5 and what it means for iphoneographers, and the new Pentax O-GPS1, the new geotagger from Pentax with some interesting peculiar features. We are also reviving the PhotoNetCast group on Flickr with some themed “competitions”. For this episode the theme is Old. Go out and shoot anything that can be related to this theme and upload it to the group. Also, out latest poll is still up. How many photography podcasts do you regularly listen to? Enjoy the show (this one has outtakes too)…

PhotoNetCast #76 – Common steps in image processing

The first steps after importing into your DAM software Even in cases where you are not really intending to so serious post-processing on images, there are a few image properties that you will always have to check after import and will often have to modify slightly. In this show, we discuss those steps, describe what each of us does and mention a few tools that can help both during shooting (to minimise the need for any later adjustment) and during post processing. New Jersey photographer Scott Wyden joins us to give a helping hand to the discussion. Such things like Exposure, White Balance (here’s a good explanation for white balance), some Colour tweaks, Noise reduction and Sharpening are all discussed with some explanation on why we do these adjustments. On the news, we discuss IKEA slowly shedding photography for computer generated images, Kodak set to quit film and photo paper business, the imminent release of the Nikon D600 and the Super-Ultra-Mega new standard for video, the Hi-Vision 8K (is 7680×4320 pixels enough?). As always, any feedback is appreciated, and if you have any questions for us to answer on the show, go ahead and send them our way.

Summer is coming, and this usually means some family traveling. With that in mind, on this episode, we decided to talk about vacation photography – basically how to make the most of your trips that are not happening mainly for photography. We discuss gear that you need and gear that you think you’ll need, finding the best locations and how to ditch your family for long enough to go there and photograph them, the not-quite-right-camera-bag-but-it-was-the-best-I-could-think-of, and security and safety of your gear and your person while on vacation. We also give a quick look at the news (very very quiet) and, as usual, we have our Selected from the Web. Big reminder that we have still our Photo Competition and Social Media Competition open until June 16th.

Welcome to the last episode of your photography podcast for 2011. On this episode we have the pleasure of having as guest Thomas Leuthard. Thomas is a street photographer from Switzerland, although a lot of his work is done all over the world. During the conversation we had the time to discuss his books (Going Candid and Collecting Souls) which Thomas makes freely available to the community, his initial steeps into the art, his philosophy documenting the street, and how his style evolved since his initial work. If you want to follow Thomas, you can do so on Twitter, Flickr and G+. We also had the time to mention Jim Goldstein’s new ebook, Photographing the 4th Dimension – Time, although we’ll have him on one of the next shows to give us more details on it, and a controversial move by CNN to let go some of their photojournalists.

PhotoNetCast #65 – Real Estate Photography

Real Estate Photography with Michael James For the first episode of 2012 we have the pleasure of talking with Real Estate photographer Michael James. Michael, based in northwest Florida, came to real estate photography out of his own need for quality property imagery and found a niche that, according to him, is far from dead. During the conversation we talk about the difficulties faced while shooting interiors, Michael’s approaches to lighting, workflow, gear, assembling a portfolio, etc. According to Dave, this “seemed more like a workshop than a podcast recording”, so it has to be good. We discussed also some of the more recent news, namely Kodak’s filing for bankruptcy protection and what it might mean for the company, the release of Lightroom 4 beta, a couple of items coming out of CES 2012 and the controversial use of a HDR image on the cover of the Washington Post.

PhotoNetCast #73 – Film and Film Cameras

Film is funny this way: photographers who spent years and years burning film, after the digital jump, either can’t stand the thought of film anymore or still use it once in a while. And then there are the digital era photographers that never tired anything film related… Once in a while, in conversations, I come across this latter kind and, surprisingly or not, many want to give it a try, if for nothing else, to at least bury the subject and never have to think about film again. But, unlike digital media, the variety of camera types and different film is so big that confusion reigns. Agfa Billy I, copyright A. Marques To increase the confusion provide a little help, on this episode we have as guest Rob Nunn to talk about different cameras and some of their characteristics, as well as different film stocks. We even approach (slightly) film developing at home (in my opinion, if you’re going to try shooting film, you will lose much of the experience if you don’t try to develop it at home). As always, we appreciate your feedback. And if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to send them our way.

PhotoNetCast #69 – Limited Edition Prints

Limited Edition Prints In episode 69 of PhotoNetCast, Guy Tal joins us to discuss the practice and ethics of selling photographic prints in limited editions. Guy Tal, a landscape, nature and travel photographer based in Utah, recently posted an article on his blog offering his opinion that, given the state of photographic technology today, selling prints as limited editions is, at best, a marketing ploy and, at worst, unethical. Tal argues that artificially limiting the availability of prints is intended purely to drive up the cost of the work and such behavior is inconsistent with his views regarding the social good provided by easy and widespread access to art. Our discussion touches on the definition of an artwork (with some surprising discoveries found in California law), the definition of a "limited edition" and news relating to photographer William Egglestone’s recent sale of new prints which has resulted in him being sued by a collector of his original work.

The Value of Photography If you listened to show number 85, you probably remember that we discussed South African photographer Greg Lumley’s offer to sell his one-off aerial panorama of Cape Town for $35000. After the show was released, Greg contacted us (you can read his response in the comments on the show page) so we invited him to join us for a discussion about his image and, more generally, the value of imagery and photography today. News In the news, we talked about the verdict in the Morel vs AFP case being upheld – that’s US$1.2M.  Still with copyrights, the appeals Court says streamlined copyright registration for collections is legal, and the Wikimedia Foundation is being naughty. On Kickstarter there was a campaign for SnaPICam, a Raspberry Pi powered Touchscreen Digital Camera complete with interchangeable lenses – as of this writing, the funding was unsuccessful The Research labs at Microsoft have been busy, and they have published some results of adjusted Hyperlapse, and the results are very very interesting.
