We just released episode 4 of the PhotoNetCast. In this episode, we spend a good chunk of time talking about photo backups and the different systems and techniques the four of us use. And on a lighter note, we each share an embarrassing or funny mistake that we’ve made in the past — good lessons to learn from. And as with each show, we bring you four new links or websites for you to check out.
I totally forgot to mention this item in the last Roundup, so now I’m taking the opportunity to start up a “News” section on the blog. The news items will be interesting, “hey look at this” kind of stuff that doesn’t really fit anywhere else on the site. So on with the news…
In case you missed it, Antonio posted the third episode of the PhotoNetCast. In this episode, the four of us talk about the relationship between blogging and photography. We also dive into the topic of photo organization. At the end of the show, each of us selected a link from around the web to an item that we found particularly interesting or inspiring. And as always, the show notes contain lots of great links to various articles and resources that we talk about in the podcast.
PhotoNetCast has just officially launched with its first two podcast episodes. The new production is a group effort between four photographers and bloggers, discussing many of the current topics in photography-land. The site’s creator, Antonio Marques of Words: irrational puts it best:
Our idea is to stand out from the crowd and turn this podcast into a more relaxed and dynamic feature with a roundtable format. Instead of delivering the common “how to’s” we intend to bring our own opinions and discuss the latest news going around in the photography world with a special focus on what is released by photography bloggers. This, of course, doesn’t mean that we will not try to make it educational.
In addition to Antonio’s voice appearing in the podcast, you’ll hear Jim Goldstein, Martin Gommel, and Myself co-hosting in this twice-a-month discussion of photography. Along with each podcast release are show-notes that highlight the topics of discussion along with links to the stories we’re referring to. The other photographers/bloggers in the show are guys that I have high respect and admiration for, and I’ve known each of them for quite some time. So if you’re looking for something to listen to while you process your photos or surf through Flickr, give the PhotoNetCast a try.
For those who do end up listening to the first few episodes, we’d really appreciate some feedback and future suggestions on how to make the show better. And for those of you with a blog of your own, we’d certainly love it if you helped spread the word to your readers. Thanks everyone!
