September was a very busy month for The Fotobug guys! Jim just returned from a Curtis Budden Photo workshop in Scotland and even toured Ireland for a few days. In the news, Flickr has introduced a 360 degree photo viewer as well as YouTube and even Facebook. GoPro has introduced a new entry-level action camera, the HERO+ with Wi-Fi. RED has launched its new RED RAVEN camera which offers 4K recording at 120fps and 2K recording at 240fps. Adobe has announced updates to its Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements and has expanded the dehaze filter in the CC version of Camera Raw to work with the Radial Filter, Graduated Filter and Local Adjustment Brush. Vantage Robotics has a new 4K camera quadcopter called Snap, and it's now up for pre-order. Finally, our friends at M&M Photo Tours have offered our listeners a 10% discount on a workshop to Tanzania. Everything is included, including airfare from New York. Go to http://mmphototours.com/ for complete information.
Jim shares highlights of his recent photography workshop in the Highlands of Scotland with Curtis Budden (www.curtisbuddenphotography.com). The landscapes in Scotland are absolutely amazing and every photographer should plan to travel to Scotland at least once! Curtis also does photo workshops in other areas and we suggest you check out his website - he will even organize custom tours for you. Jim also created a number of timelapse sequences for the podcast using his own rail in addition to the original Radian and LRTimelapse software. Thanks to a great group that helped make this workshop truly outstanding!
Coming up next time, The Fotobug Halloween special with a How-to on spooky night time light painting. Be sure not to miss it!
