"Is the Panasonic TS7 as Smart as it is Tough?" - TDS Photo Podcast 648

8/14/2018
More
This is The Digital Story Podcast #648, August 14, 2018. Today's theme is "Is the Panasonic TS7 as Smart as it is Tough?." I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue When I first laid eyes on the Panasonic TS7 digital camera, I knew I had to get my hands on it. And once I did, it felt every bit as good as I imagined. But once you get past its rugged good looks, how does it perform? Does it have the brains to match the body? This is the question that I'll address in today's TDS Photography...

"Digitizing, Printing, and More!" - TDS Digital Photo Podcast 647

8/7/2018
More
This is The Digital Story Podcast #647, August 7, 2018. Today's theme is "Digitizing, Printing, and More!." I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue I guess you could say that I'm a 2-way photographer. In one direction, I'm keenly interested in making prints from my digital images. Going the other way, I'm fascinated by methods for digitizing my analog shots. And in today's TDS podcast, I talk with Peter Krogh, author of "Digitizing Your Photos". Plus I share my first experiences with the...

"Sony RX100 VI: You Can Have it All" - TDS Photo Podcast 646

7/31/2018
More
This is The Digital Story Podcast #646, July 31, 2018. Today's theme is "Sony RX100 VI: You Can Have it All" I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue A subcompact camera with a 1" sensor is a luxury indeed. And for that reason alone, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VI Digital Camera is worth a look. But then add a relatively fast Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 24-200mm zoom, popup electronic viewfinder, and 4K video recording, and you have to ask yourself, "What the heck is going on here?" We're going to...

"FOPS and the New Mirrorless Revolution" - TDS Photo Podcast 645

7/24/2018
More
This is The Digital Story Podcast #645, July 24, 2018. Today's theme is "FOPS and the New Mirrorless Revolution" I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue It makes total sense that the mirrorless revolution began without Canon and Nikon. On one level, that's what made it a revolution. FOPS - Fujifulm, Olympus, Panasonic, and later, Sony - previous underdogs, blazed the trail that many of us journey on today. But it was only a matter of time until the lords of the manor realized that they too...

"The Filter Box" - TDS Digital Photography Podcast 644

7/17/2018
More
This is The Digital Story Podcast #644, July 17, 2018. Today's theme is "The Filter Box" I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue I'm not one to hang on to unused items. If a camera or lens isn't seeing action, then I move it along to someone who will put it to use. I do have one exception to this rule: filters. I store them in a large shoebox at my studio. And they are the one photography accessory that I seldom part with. Why is that? I answer that question on today's TDS photography...

"Has Flickr Found Its Soulmate?" - TDS Photography Podcast 643

7/10/2018
More
This is The Digital Story Podcast #643, July 10, 2018. Today's theme is "Has Flickr Found Its Soulmate?" I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue Flickr was my first serious photo sharing site. I joined in 2006. But even though it hosts billions of images posted by millions of users, it has been written off for dead for years. The problem is, someone forgot to tell the photographers who use it, including its new owner, Smugmug. People endure bad relationships all the time. And some lucky...

"Shake it Up" - TDS Digital Photography Podcast 642"

7/3/2018

This is The Digital Story Podcast #642, July 3, 2018. Today's theme is "Shake it Up." I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue Analog Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 mounted on an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II, Softar 1 Filter, and lens adapter. There are days when I go to my photo cave and just start spreading things around - lenses, filters, gels, reflectors, diffusers, and whatever else I have laying around. Then I start looking for interesting combinations. I want to do something different. I want to...

"Overcooked" - TDS Digital Photography Podcast 641"

6/26/2018
More
This is The Digital Story Podcast #641, June 26, 2018. Today's theme is "Overcooked." I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue A by-product of today's amazing post production software is sometimes images that are over-saturated, sharpened, and in general, overdone. You may think that the creators of these images would see their overzealous processing. But realizing it is trickier than you'd think. We're going to take a closer look at this phenomenon in today's TDS podcast. Digital...

This is The Digital Story Podcast #640, June 19, 2018. Today's theme is "The Fascinating ProGrade Digital Story." I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue How many times have you thought to yourself at work, "If I was in charge, we would do things much differently."? Industry veteran Wes Brewer, who spent years working with SanDisk and Lexar, got his chance to do exactly that. And the result of that effort is a new company called ProGrade Digital. We learn about their story in today's TDS...

"The Art of Festival Photography" - Digital Photo Podcast 639

6/12/2018
More
This is The Digital Story Podcast #639, June 12, 2018. Today's theme is "The Art of Festival Photography." I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue Whether you're covering a music festival or a dazzling display of hot air balloons, it's hard not to be mesmerized by the main attraction. But if you really want to tell the story of the event, you have to get past that as quickly as possible. That process - of going from being in awe to taking awesome photos - is the topic of today's TDS...

This is The Digital Story Podcast #638, June 5, 2018. Today's theme is "Scott Kelby's Surprising Printing Talk at Photoshop World" I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue I was anticipating a number of topics covered at the Photoshop World Keynote address. But the importance of printing was not one of them. Yet, after the T-Shirt tosses and Beatles parodies, Scott Kelby maneuvered from the importance of backing up to the even greater value of printing. The five points that he used to build...

"The Future of Lightroom" - Digital Photography Podcast 637

5/29/2018
More
This is The Digital Story Podcast #637, May 29, 2018. Today's theme is "The Future of Lightroom" I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue After the fall of Aperture, Lightroom stood tall as the best all around digital asset manager for serious enthusiasts and many pros as well. But a number things have changed since then - some initiated by Adobe, and others by external forces. And suddenly, Lightroom's future is a bit more cloudy than it was a couple years ago. And that's the top story in...

5/22/2018
More
This is The Digital Story Podcast #636, May 22, 2018. Today's theme is "The True Summer Advantage" I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue Summer is the season of family vacations, solo adventure, BBQing, baseball games, picnics, and bare feet. But for photographers, there's another benefit that might not be immediately apparent, but can be wildly useful and enjoyable - and that's the subject of today's TDS photography podcast.

This is The Digital Story Podcast #635, May 15, 2018. Today's theme is "The Right Drone for You - An Interview with Mike Boening" I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue Ever since I read about the new Mavic Air, I have wondered if I should replace my beloved Spark. To help me decide, I called up my friend and drone enthusiast Mike Boening to discuss the latest in quadcopters, their accessories, and a few important flying tips. I also recorded it to share with you on this week's TDS...

5/8/2018

This is The Digital Story Podcast #634, May 8, 2018. Today's theme is "What's Your Online Gallery Strategy?" I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue If you're like me at all, you have your images spread across various sites online. At one time, you may have had a master plan - best shots go here, family stuff there, everyday life somewhere else. And chances are, as good as that plan was, it went out the door long time ago. So maybe it's time to revisit your portfolio site - a place for only...

"Street Photography 2.0" - Digital Photography Podcast 633

5/1/2018
More
This is The Digital Story Podcast #633, May 1, 2018. Today's theme is "Street Photography 2.0." I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue Many people think of street photography as this stealthy activity that can lead to confrontation if the subject suddenly detects their being the unsuspecting target. But there's another approach, and it's one where the photographer openly integrates with the environment instead of hiding within it. I call this technique Street Photography 2.0, and it's the...

This is The Digital Story Podcast #632, April 24, 2018. Today's theme is "Postcard Gravity." I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue In my previous life as a cubical worker, we used to have this term for high-flying good ideas that were eventually pulled back to earth to meet their inevitable demise. We called this phenomenon, "corporate gravity." And believe it or not, it has an artistic sibling for photographers that I call that "postcard gravity." And the battle against it is the subject...

4/17/2018

This is The Digital Story Podcast #631, April 17, 2018. Today's theme is "Are There Any Benefits to Watermarking?." I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue A bad watermark is like pimple on the nose of a beautiful person. You want to enjoy the beauty, but all you can see is the pimple. But not all watermarks are bad. And in fact, they can be both tasteful and useful. And the quest to figure all of that out is the subject of today's TDS podcast. Digital Photography Podcast 631 Are There...

Opening Monologue Allen Saunders wrote in 1957, "Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans." John Lennon later used the quote in his song, "Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)". And any photographer who has ever hit the road knows exactly how this feels. In this week's podcast, I share how even the best laid plans can go awry when life intervenes....

This is The Digital Story Podcast #629, April 3, 2018. Today's theme is "Leica in Paradise." I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue Exploring an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean is definitely a place where I want to travel light. It's warm. It's humid. And flip-flops and board shorts are the apparel of the day. Feels like a good challenge for the Micro Four Thirds Leica D-LUX. And in this show, I'm going to tell you how it fared.
