At this point you might be wondering why haven’t we published any new episodes of PhotoNetCast, or why did the previously scheduled live recordings disappeared from the calendar. All fair questions from our photo-loving community. And I can tell you that it’s not even Dave’s fault .
Actually we have a very good excuse:
On September 9th, just after lunch time, my son was born.
Having at least some of my priorities straight, I had to postpone the recording we had scheduled for the 11th and put on hold some other guests we had lined-up for the upcoming episodes. Gladly I also hadn’t take an invitation to cover Photokina (I was that close to say yes).
That said, I feel confident that around the middle of October we will have another episode out and that we’ll publish regularly again after that.
I hope you guys understand, and a special apology to the guests we had scheduled and I had to cancel.
See you very soon on your favourite photography podcast.
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.
A few years back we produced an episode in which we gave a few suggestions for some good photography books. Recently, our guest Ruben Vicente (see also his project at Light Travelers) suggested that we repeat the topic, with a few more book recommendations. And so we did. We brought him on the show to share his book highlights and we’ve added a few more of our own.
