Just when you thought we had disappeared for good, we’re back. Job changes, house moves and family crises are (hopefully) behind us all so we’re hoping that we can now get back to something like a regular podcasting schedule. Keep your fingers crossed and keep watching!
In this episode, is joined by and for a general natter about some recent news topics and to answer listener questions.
During news discussion, Dave enthuses about the new Nikon D810, a camera that finally hits the function and price sweet spots for D700 owners looking to upgrade, we consider the value of photography in the light of a couple of news stories from ImageBrief and South African photographer Greg Lumley, consider Flickr’s newly-announced photo licensing marketplace and get confused about how Sony will manufacture their new curved sensor.
On a more light-hearted note, we take a quick look at some imaginative on-the-job engagement photos from a Chinese SWAT officer and note that DXO Film Pack 3 software is available free until August 15th.
Enjoy the show…
Common Steps in Image Processing
Such things like Exposure, 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?)
Go get it :)
We have Greg Lumley, the photographer, on the show to talk about it.
Tonight, Aug 17, at 4pm EST, 8pm UTC, 9pm BST, livecast of PhotoNetCast 86 - http://www.photonetcast.com/live
Come join us in the chat.
If you have any questions that you would like us to address on the show, add a comment to the "Questions for the Show" topic on our community page and we'll try to fit it in.
BTW, this will be another Antonio-free recording so we can't stream it live. Sorry!
PhotoNetCast is a podcast produced in a cooperation between several photographers.
Our idea is to stand out from the crowd and turn this podcast into a more relaxed and dynamic feature with a roundtable format. Instead of delivering the common "how to’s" we intend to bring our own opinions and discuss the latest news going around in the photography world with a special focus on what is released by photography bloggers. This, of course, doesn’t mean that we will not try to make it educational.
If you get something useful for you from listening to our show, then we have reached our goal.
And for now, on with the show…
