Welcome to podcast number 110!  Fred and Jim test out the laser triggering option on the Nerotrigger and attempt to capture falling jello into Fred's mouth.  Although we had a small problem with the Nerotrigger, we eventually corrected the issue and were able to proceed with our unusual quest!  The Nerotrigger can also trigger on other events and we will be testing additional features in future episodes.

In the photo news, Rohn Engh, author and advisor on stock photography, recently passed away, photographer Kris Boorman discovers a viral image isn't always a good thing, top Hollywood producers commit to purchasing film from Kodak, and there may be a new Canon 7d coming!  Also, we would like you to take our Facebook poll.  In 2012 a black macaque stole a camera from David Slater and now there is a copyright issue over Wikki Commons.  Who owns the copyright, or are the images public domain?  Let us know what you think!

There is still time to get in on the Maine Fall Colors, Moose and Black bear workshop.  Also registration is open for The Black Hills Shootout in South Dakota, but workshops are filling up fast.  We also have openings for the Julian Alps fall colors in Slovenia.  Go to www.outdoorphotoworkshops.com for these and other workshops!

Chris Klapheke will be returning for our next podcast, number 111!

In the news, GoPro may be going public. The CEO of GoPro has filed for a potential IPO.  The National Park Service has banned UAVs (drones) at Yosemite National Park. Fourandsix Technologies, Inc. has launched www.izitru.com (pronounced 'is it true') a new, free service and companion iPhone app that can determine whether or not an image has been processed. Would you like to do long night exposures, or possible light paintings on your iPhone? While the latest generation of smartphones can in many ways rival traditional compact cameras, the lack of true long exposure functionality on most phones is a limitation. However, now there's an app for IOS.  For more news, check out the podcast.

Jim and Fred are also conducting the Critter Closeup Workshop on June 7th in St. Petersburg, FL.  As an intro, they present some equipment that can be useful for closeup and macro photography including lenses, adapters, and lighting equipment.  There is still time to sign up for the workshop at www.outdoorphotoworkshops.com. Also, Jim and Charlie MacPherson will be doing a wildlife workshop in Pennsylvania at the end of June.  For information go to www.theamazingimage.com.

Stay tuned for upcoming podcasts for more new reviews and interviews!
