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.

Creating mini-planets, small worlds, spheres in Photoshop

Click here to view via iTunes Subscribe to the Photography Exposed podcast via iTunes

We’ve pulled out Photoshop for this episode of Photography Exposed, and are giving you a tutorial on creating Mini Planets, using Polar Coordinates and a few tricks to convert panoramic photos into spherical worlds. The video walks you through using Photomerge for creating a 360 panorama, or just using a cropped section of a single photo. In one example, I bring in HDR images I’ve processed in Photomatix as well. Enjoy!

We’ve all seen timelapse video at one time or another, but not everyone has seen or knows about the incredible quality and capability a DSLR camera brings into the timelapse equation. I had the pleasure of interviewing Jay Burlage, who is better know as MILapse to many on sites like Video and YouTube where his amazing visual creations have entertained and attracted the attention of viewers around the world.

Jay has been very active in developing hardware, software, and processes that allow just about anyone to make spectacular timelapse video.  From his simplest panning rig built off a beefy clock, to his latest open source endevours at Dynamic Perception that allow precision panning and dolly control for DSLRs and systems like the RED ONE, there is something in this interview for all budgets and levels of experience.

Photographer Mitch Epstein - American Power

Click here to view via iTunes Subscribe to the Photography Exposed podcast via iTunes

Welcome to Photography Exposed, a podcast series for beginner, intermediate, and advanced photographers.  For our first episode, we are excited to have Mitch Epstein visit us at Washington College and discuss American Power, his new photo book that asks everyone to look harder at their daily relationship with power.

In American Power, Mitch Epstein investigates notions of power, both electrical and political. His focus is on energy – how it gets made, how it gets used, and the ramifications of both. From 2003 to 2008, he photographed at and around sites where fossil fuel, nuclear, hydroelectric, wind, and solar power are produced in the United States. The resulting photographs contain Epstein’s signature complex wit, surprising detail, and formal rigor. These pictures illuminate the intersection between American society and American landscape. Here is a portrait of early 21st century America, as it clings to past comforts and gropes for a more sensible future. In an accompanying essay, Epstein discusses his method, and how making these photographs led him to think harder about the artist’s role in a country teetering between collapse and transformation.
