Photography Podcast - Photography Exposed 005 - PocketWizard FlexTT5 for Nikon, TTL vs non-TTL lighting, and Sensor Density Demystified!

Brian Palmer and Christopher Stokes discuss the newly available PocketWizard FlexTT5 RF transceivers (now Nikon compatible). B&H Photo Video claims shipping in 7-14 days from the taping of this show, and is taking orders. This segues into an overview of TTL vs non-TTL lighting, and what the FlexTT5 or MiniTT1 modules can do for your lighting workflow. A listener asks why her 6 year old Nikon point-and-shoot camera produces a better picture than her 3 year old Panasonic point-and-shoot. Brian compares two images she emailed us and gives an overview on camera sensor density’s role in the overall quality of the image.

Photography Podcast 004 - Interactive Photography Exhibit and Photography on the Chesapeake Bay

Co-host Christopher Stokes joins Brian Palmer to showcase the combination of a traditional photography exhibit with an interactive use of QR bar codes which show text and video content for each photo. Photography Exposed Interactive Photography Exhibit is available at the Kohl Gallery on the Washington College campus now through Feb 27th, 2011.

Chris and Brian also talk about the Chesapeake Bay Photographer’s Sailing Adventure, a 4 day photography centric trip Brian led in October with students of the college. The video, which won a 2010 MarCom Platinum Award and a 2011 Annual Educational Advertising Award, features images from the 5 students and photos and video shot by Brian.
