We continue from the last episode, this time answering listener questions on off-camera flash triggers, photo sharing sites, night sky photography and back button focusing.

And, of course, time as well for our selected from the web.


Enjoy the show…

PhotoNetCast #90 – Looking back, looking forward

Posted in PhotoNetCast Shows on 31-12-2014 | 1 Comment

We hope you had a great Christmas together with your loved ones (and that Santa has been generous with the photographic treats).

For the last episode of the year, we decided to have a quick look into the past year, from our photography ventures and also from PhotoNetCast’s perspective. At the same time, we briefly discuss what we have planned for 2015, and what we expect to change during the year.

We also address some of the news topics: the appearance of a new file format that wants to take JPEG head on; Flickr backtracks on the whole Creative Commons for Wall Art thing; Fuji firmware updates add features for X-T1, X-E2, X-E1, and X-Pro1, Metz, a leading provider of lights just a few years back, files for insolvency; a new service that promises centralising all your social media photo uploads; Time UK being naughty with rights grabs; and lastly a Toronto Gallery Buys the Entire Collection of Vivian Maier Negatives Owned by Jeffrey Goldstein.

After all this, the show was just getting too long so we’ve split it in two, with Listener Questions and Selected from the Web coming up on a separate episode, just after the New Year.



Hope you enjoy the show and, as always, feedback and suggestions are very much appreciated.

From all of us at PhotoNetCast, we wish you a great entry into 2015.

PhotoNetCast #89 – Photography Accessories

Photography Accessories


This episode sees the return of Sam Scholes to the co-hosting team.

A round through the news takes us to the heated discussion about Flickr using CC-licensed images for their wall art business – but are they really doing anything legally wrong?

Also, GoPro makers seem to be developing a new line of consumer drones to be the perfect match for their cameras. However, with the FAA planning to tighten the regulations on commercial use of drones, is this the best move fore them?

And for the stock photographers out there, how would you like to have your images captioned (maybe even keyworded) by your computer? Google getting closer.



And a reminder that we are giving away two copies of David Taylor’s Mastering Landscape Photography. Just let us know you want one via the comments below, email, twitter, facebook, etc. More details on the giveaway just around the corner.
