For our second Mobile RAWtalk we bring the circus to Santa Rosa which is about an hour outside of San Francisco. ThinkTank Photo the makers of the camera bags I use were gracious enough to open up their office for this special episode.

Stephen started off the show with a very special announcement that has been a year and a half in the making. Tune in for the first few minutes to get the scoop.

I sat down with one of the founders of ThinkTank, Kurt Rodgers for a quick interview before we jumped into the Photo News, discussions and LIVE Flying Solo.

Thank you to ThinkTank Photo for their offices as our backdrop.

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

A Battery Made Out Of Something You Can Smoke?!

Well we didn’t see this coming: Researchers have discovered and demonstrated a new method to make efficient batteries out of hemp. Yup, read all the science talk about it over on PetaPixel. Pretty crazy right?

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

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

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.

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.

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)

We have to start off with a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Stephen Eckert who’s birthday was on Thursday.

There is a large portion of you guys out there who consider yourself a “Hobbyists”. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being a hobbyist who loves photography and may or may not be looking to make some money with their photos.

Before the show I put out the call for hobbyists to ask me all the questions on their mind. The response was insane with over 350 questions coming over night. Many of them were very basic and others though basic were pinpointed at a specific topic which is great.

There were so many fantastic questions this week that I know will help a lot of you out there. I knew this RAWtalk was going to go overtime but I wanted to make sure I answered as many questions as possible.

So sit back, learn and enjoy this 2+ Hour edition of FroKnowsPhoto RAWtalk.

Mini-Documentary Shot on the Nikon D810

There is a brand new short film that was shot entirely on the Nikon D810 called ‘Every Moment Counts’. The production company, Cinescapes Collective, was contacted by NPS Canada to showcase the new Nikon body, using everything from an octocopter to a Movi to a pocket jib to even a Kessler Cinedrive–only the best tools to make the perfect cinematic film. They have a whole behind-the-scenes video explaining the process of the shoot too, from their use of the new flat picture style setting to backing up the footage to even shooting clean HDMI out. Check it all out below and head over to their blog to view a comparison video showing the before-and-after color grading process as well. (via FS)

RAWtalk Photography #095: WE ARE BACK HOME

Jared Polin July 21, 2014 Comments Off Raw Talk On iTunes

Click Here to download this weeks RAWtalk Episode as an MP3.

RAWtalk Video and Photo News will be up on Tuesday.

Isn’t it always nice to get home from being away? I know a lot of people love being away but for me, I don’t like being away for to long. The key to my happiness is never stopping, when I stop, I become less happy.

Many of you know I was out in Seattle on CreativeLIVE putting in 15-18 hour days and still it felt like a vacation to me.

Well, now we are home at the loft and crushing another RAWtalk Episode. I must say, when we finished this weeks show we all sat there and said that was a good one. Of course you never know how it really went until you release it into the wild.

Are you in London or Cologne Germany and can help with Mobile RAWtalk? If so please e mail me at Jared at FroKnowsPhoto.com with the subject line Mobile RAWtalk Help. I am looking for help in finding the locations, helping with the show and someone to correspond with people who are signing up.

In my opinion there are a million different tripod companies all of which are creating pretty much the same tripods. Recently when I was at AllensCamera.com they had in stock the BENRO tripods and video tripods. I decide to try one out and liked it. When I like something I call the company to see if they will send me a test unit so I can see if I should recommend it to you.

In this case I really liked the video monopod for the price and functions that it offered.

Stephen hits you right in the face with more photo news before we CRUSH the flying solo questions that came in this week.

Don’t forget to check out AllensCamera.com as well as RODE and Atomos. Without those companies supporting RAWtalk it would be harder to do RAWtalk each week.

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

What Flickr Would Look Like in 1989

A Flickr user named Jeff Jackson showcases what Flickr would have looked like if it existed 25 years ago. He tweaked his 1989 Macintosh SE/30 and browsed the web to see what websites today would look like and how they would function, Flickr being one of them. He says it took a full five minutes just to load a single Flickr page; wow. Check out the black & white 8-bit screenshot below. (via TUAW)
