I love when I ask for solid questions and you guys deliver them for the flying solo potion of the show!!!! We are prepping to hit head to Poland And Germany thanks to BlackRapid who has sponsored the trip.

I hope to be announcing some meet ups in Poland and Germany shortly. We probably won’t be doing mobile RAWtalks from those ares just yet but a fun hangout will be just as fun.

Stephens Photo News like always is filled with ZERO disruptions and zero singing. If you believe that I have a bride I would like to sell you.

We wrap up this weeks show with solid solid flying solo questions as well as Top 5’s that you guys submitted. Keep an eye out for when I request the flying solo questions come in.

Thanks to RODE Microphones, Atomos, AllensCamera.com and all the sponsors on the Wheel Of Fro!!!!

GoPro Debuts First Dog Mount

GoPro debuted it’s first official dog mount so now you can get a first person view of what your dog sees. Called the “Fetch” mount, it’s a harness system that wraps around your dog similar to a dog collar. The mount will let you mount up to two GoPro’s–one on the dog’s back and one under his neck / stomach region. The mount is a one-size-fits all solution that will work with any dog that weighs anywhere from 15-200 lbs. Price wise, it’ll cost you $60. Will you be getting one for your dog?

We Have Reached a MILESTONE – FroKnowsPhoto RAWtalk Episode #100 Photography

Jared Polin August 24, 2014 Comments Off Raw Talk On iTunes

This week we are testing out releasing the audio and video at the same time!!!

Click Here to download this weeks RAWtalk as an MP3.

We have made it to the 100th Episode of FroKnowsPhoto RAWtalk. What started as an idea to have a roundtable discussion each week has morphed a few times to get to where it stands today.

When it started we did not record video, just audio. But something always told me that audio alone is not enough, we needed to add video. When I started to record video it was done with a static GoPro camera with the audio running into it. The quality was fine but nothing over the top.

I wanted better audio, better video and a show that stood out above the other photography podcasts. The missing piece to the puzzle was Stephen Eckert. I knew Stephen had audio skills, so i asked him to help me out with recording each week. Right away he said I should add more camera angles and that he would edit them. Talk about grabbing the balls by the horns, he took initiative.

RAWtalk Episode #098 – You Have To Put Yourself Into Situations To Be Successful

Jared Polin August 10, 2014 Comments Off Raw Talk On iTunes

Click Here to download this weeks RAWtalk as an MP3.

Do you know how important it is to just put yourself into situations? Now I am not talking about putting yourself into situations that you know you shouldn’t be. I am talking about putting yourself into situations to be successful. You never know who you are going to meet or the opportunities that may arise when you get out of the house.

This happened to me recently when I decided last minute to purchase a ticket for the Billy Joel concert. I had no expectations that I would come out of it with possibly shooting a show for Billy in the future. Well, that’s exactly what happened and I discuss it in more detail during this weeks episode.

The moral of the story is put yourself in situations where you can be successful, you never know what will come out of it.

If you are a Polish or German fan we have some good news for you. Stephen and I will be making our way to Poland and Germany in the middle of September.

Stephen hits us with his photo news once again and I did not interrupt him once.

Finally we rap up the show with something a little different. Instead of regular flying solo questions, I answer the rapid fire top 5 questions that were submitted.

Thank you to Atomos for being this weeks main sponsor. Please check out Atomos.com and keep an ear out for the full contest rules to WIN a Ninja Star. Thank you to AllensCamera.com, Rode Microphone and all the people on the Wheel of Fro.

Here’s all of Stephen’s photo news stories in detail:

Adobe has officially put up their own microsite dedicated to the switch over from Apple Aperture to Lightroom. The website comes complete with a quick guide in the form of a PDF, which shows you how to manually transfer images over from Aperture. Now Adobe has announced that they are indeed working on their own migration tool, so if you’d rather it be an automatic process, you might want to wait for that. Here’s what they have to say: “At Adobe, we’re working on a migration tool to help you bring your photos into Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® from Aperture, but if you’re eager to switch before the tool is ready, this guide can help ease your transition. We recognize that this migration may be a challenging process and offer the following resources to help get you up to speed with Lightroom and provide a road map for successfully migrating your photos.The first challenge is that the terminology, layout, and controls of the two applications are different.” Click the screenshot below to get started!

RAWtalk Episode #097 – I HATE When the band does not CREDIT ME

Jared Polin August 4, 2014 Comments Off Raw Talk On iTunes

Click Here to download this weeks RAWtalk as an MP3.

How many of you out there have ever had a band, business, client, family member or anyone else not give you photo credit? Don’t think that this is just new for the online world. I can think back to a few times where magazines were supposed to run my photo credit only to see if did not get printed. I would get the we’re sorry, we will get it right from here on out. Man that answer is really lame.

Well recently a band used my images, with permission I might add but they did not credit it the way I asked to be credited or at all for that matter. Did I flip out and go all social media on their asses, NOPE. I simply took the it must have gotten lost in translation approach and contact the band directly along with their management. Be sure to listen to the full episode to hear how it all turned out in the end.

A FRO reader sent Postman FRO a very nice gift in the way of a USPS Safari hat. You will need to see the video to check out how Sutter looked wearing it the entire show.

Stephen Eckert hit us with some photo news including one story about a woman who PEES on her film to get interesting results. Yea, I think I have some reactions to go along with that story.

Finally we go Flying SOLO with more of your questions that get submitted on Facebook.

Enjoy the show and don’t forget to subscribe on iTunes. A Big think you to AllensCamera.com, Atomos, RODE Microphones, and all the companies on the Wheel of FRO.

Here’s all of Stephen’s photo news stories in detail:

RUMOR: Nikon to Release CMOS Medium Format Camera?

First up on the rumor mill this week: Mirrorless Rumors is reporting that a “trusted source” says Nikon is working on a medium format camera based on Sony’s 50 MP CMOS medium format sensor. The rumor site is saying it could be unveiled as early as Photokina. Now, to back this claim up, Nikon did file a patent for a 100mm f2.5 medium format lens last year. Take it with a grain of salt for now until we hear something official…

WTF?! Photographer Urinates On Film For Unique Look

A lot of people want that unique film-look today, especially with all the filters they have going around on apps like Instagram and VSCO. Well, one photographer named Brigette Bloom took her film to the next level, by peeing on it…Yup, she has a new series called ‘Float On’--clever huh?–which showcases underwater photos taken in Hawaii that were shot with film that was pre-soaked in a cup of her own urine. The chemicals in the pee break down the film’s emulsion so it’s an interesting final look, sort of like compositing a microscopic image and a photograph. Check out what I mean below for a sample and head on over to her website for the rest: (via FS)
