Welcome to our seventh podcast.  Fred and Jim answer questions from reader's email and discuss more photography related news, such as the recently found "Ansel Adams negatives", the Obama portrait lawsuits and more.  Also discussed, and we would like your input, should we establish a Fotobug social media page on Facebook as well as Flickr or Smugmug.  If so, which ones?  Please let us know!  We would also like to do contests and have give-away events.  We would also eventually like to seperate the training videos, interviews, etc. and have a page where you can watch high quality versions.

Please notice on the right side menu listing on the http://fotobug.podbean.com webpage, that we are now including links mentioned in the podcast as well as within the text presented here.  In addition, there is a link to our discounts and shopping sites. If you purchase from these links we receive a small gratuity from each sale which helps us keep the podcast coming!  Thank you in advance for your support!

I apologize once again to Jeff Donald who was to be featured in this episode, but we simply ran out of time and Jeff will be the very first feature on our next podcast!  Thanks for understanding!  Also coming up, an interview with storm chaser and photographer, Mike Pendergast.  In October, I will be featuring an interview with Tim Grey and Rick Sammon!  Keep listening!

Jim presents a video session on creating time-lapse videos with virtually any digital camera, easily and inexpensively.  Fred presents a review of the Seagate Dockstar and PogoPlug for sharing images and videos from your own PC.  We have a lot more planned for upcoming netcasts on DSLR videomaking, Star Trails, Kayak/Canoe photography, and more.

Discussion about upcoming Photo workshops and tours as well as regional photo seminars such as the South Dakota Shootout featuring keynote speaker, George Lepp.  Where do you want to go, write and let us know what your ideal trip would be and where you would like to go.  Upcoming workshops include South Dakota Cowboys, Into the Everglades, Costa Rica and even Mongolia! The website to register for the Black Hills Photo Shootout is BLACK HILLS PHOTO SHOOTOUT . From a listener question on removing water from a tripod, we present a video interview with photographer RJ Wiley who invented the DRY POD WADERS.  The waders slip over your tripod legs and keep the water out!  Available from www.birdsasart.com. The Ansel Adams negatives turned out to be taken by someone's Uncle Earl - and not Ansel, despite the six month validation and confirmation.  Jim and Fred feel vindicated for being skeptical in the last podcast.
