[tweetmeme]Over at PhotoNetCast, Antonio has been making constant improvements and feature additions to the site. One of the most recent is “PhotoNetCast Live“.
This is a dedicated page on the site that holds a video feed and chat box. So when we’re recording, the video feed will be rolling and you can see/hear the show in real-time. You can also join in the making of each episode by asking questions or making comments in the chat box directly below the video feed.
So if you’re interested in listening to us record the show and seeing our faces, head over to the PhotoNetCast Live page at 9PM PST tonight. Again, the next show will be recorded at:
9PM PST (11PM CST), September 23, 2010
Swing by tonight and say hello if you’re a fan of the show.
Ok… maybe not famous, but it probably wouldn’t hurt your popularity. Over at PhotoNetCast, we’re looking to bring on a few extra co-hosts to join us on a regular basis. Two of the current hosts are in need of some extra time due to changes in their schedules, and we’d like to keep our group size at 3 or 4 hosts.
What we’re looking for are fellow photography enthusiasts willing and able to spend around 2 hours every other week talking photography with us. The basic requirements are that you have some knowledge and enthusiasm for photography, a decent Internet connection, and the ability to voice opinions on a variety of topics.
For more details on this opportunity, follow the link below to the announcement at PhotoNetCast.
CO-HOSTS WANTED AT PHOTONETCAST
Episode #18 of the PhotoNetCast is now available for your listening pleasure. In this one, we talk with Tom Hogarty — an Adobe product manager for Lightroom. We talk to him about all kinds of things regarding the popular software, and he gives us some good insights to the “behind the scenes” work that goes into such software.
And as a special feature, Adobe gave us one copy of Lightroom to give away to our listeners! That’s a $300 piece of software! If you want a chance at the software, you’ve got until December 17th to enter the raffle.
You have two ways of entering: leave a comment (1 entry) or write a blog post (2 entries). In either case, we’d like to hear how Lightroom would change your digital photography workflow. Pretty easy if you ask me!

In this twelfth episode of PhotoNetCast, we discuss the topic of stock photography in the wake of Photoshelter’s decision to shut down their Collection.
At the beginning of the podcast, I also talk about my recent adventures with upgrading my computer storage space — including an interesting quirk with Windows Vista that allows you to lock yourself out of your photos.

I’ve mentioned this amazing war photographer, Zoriah, in a previous article here on the blog. Well… over at the PhotoNetCast, we took things a step further and got him on a conference call for an interview!
This is something that you’ll definitely want to listen to. He talks about his past, present, and future in photojournalism and war photography. The guy is amazingly down-to-earth for the amount of nasty stuff that he’s experienced. He talks about what he does, why he does it, and how he got into it. We also have a bit of a discussion about his recent issues with military politics/censorship in Iraq.
Again, I encourage everyone to listen to this interview. Zoriah is a great photographer and human being — he deserves to have his stories heard.
Listen to PhotoNetCast Episode 11: Zoriah, War Photographer
In the near future, a special guest will be joining the discussion on the PhotoNetCast. Zoriah is an independent war photographer and photojournalist who was recently embedded in Iraq. For more background on Zoriah, see my recent article about him.
We’re taking questions over at PhotoNetCast, and we’ll bring up those questions when we talk with him (since we won’t be broadcasting live). If you have anything you’d like to ask Zoriah about his work, travels, experiences, etc., be sure to leave a comment on the PhotoNetCast announcement post:
Ask Zoriah a Question
In this eighth episode of PhotoNetCast, we discuss the topic of photo competitions — benefits of participating in them, how to find them, what the judges are thinking, how to improve your chances at scoring high, and things to be cautious of.
We also have a very special guest join us for this episode: David Ziser. David had been in photography for some time now, and he’s quite experienced with these print competitions from a participant and a judge standpoint. It was great to have him offer up his wisdom on this topic, and we all thoroughly enjoyed chatting with him.
Listen to PhotoNetCast Episode 8
The seventh episode of the PhotoNetCast is ready to go! In this one, we discuss photo editing. Some people hate it (i.e. Photoshop), and some love it. But whatever your position on the topic, everybody seems to have an opinion about it — and the four of us are no exception.
Also, if you like to feed on the reads, be sure to grab the PhotoNetCast feed from Feedburner so you don’t miss the next shows — it’s a full feed, audio and all. And if you’re an “on the go” type of person, make sure you grab the PhotoNetCast subscription from iTunes and get that stuff loaded up on your favorite media player.
Listen to PhotoNetCast Episode 7
The sixth episode of the PhotoNetCast is ready to go! This one is a great discussion about the film vs digital topic. The four of us have very different backgrounds and experiences with each medium, and this resulted in a good array of thoughts on the subject. We tried to cover the ups and downs of each medium along with our personal experiences.
In addition to the main topic (just the one this time), we offer up a few links to some interesting things we found over the last few weeks. In total, this one is nearly 70 minutes long, but we didn’t want to cut off the film/digital discussion because it was such a lively discussion.
Listen to PhotoNetCast Episode 6
The fifth episode of the joint-effort PhotoNetCast was published earlier today. In this episode, we talk about geotagging — pros, cons, gadgets, technologies, etc. In our second topic, we also hit on the topic of traditional versus online photography stores. And, as always, the four of us bring an additional link to something that inspired us over the past weeks.
