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 MarCom Platinum Award, features images from the 5 students and photos and video shot by Brian.

Brian also mentions an upcoming interview with photographer Tim Babasade.  Brian and Tim took two trips to the American south west in 2009 and 2010, and the upcoming podcast episode will talk about specific locations they visited, and also generic trip planning ideas.

Runtime: 15:00

Snappy - the Photography Exposed mascotI’m excited to announce the opening of the Photography Exposed – Interactive Photography Exhibit, at Kohl Gallery in Chestertown, MD. This exhibit uses a unique approach of providing an interactive multimedia experience by way of QR Code (quick response bar codes) in addition to the name of the artist and title.

Guests can use their iPhone, Android phone, latest gen iPod (with camera), or similar device to scan these QR Codes, and immediately pull up text of the artists description and camera settings, voiceover with video describing the making of the photograph, or in some cases, behind the scenes video or even screen casts showing the event where the photo was made, or any post processing that might have been done in Photoshop to achieve the final result.

The exhibit with 50 photos will remain up through February 27, 2011. The exhibit is just outside the Kohl Gallery in the Gibson Performing Arts Building on the beautiful Washington College campus, located at 300 Washington Ave, Chestertown, MD 21620.
