Fotobug, Elusive Image - Episode 20

February 27th, 2011

Welcome to The Fotobug Podcast episode number 20.  This show is going to be a bit different as we have a special guest in our studio and James Shadle is also going to do a live feed with us via Skype.  A few weeks ago, Jim and Fred joined Capt. James out on the Hooptie Deux to photograph roseate spoonbills and will be featuring a video of the trip.  If you are visiting Florida, we recommend you check out James' website at and and consider booking a tour with him.  In addition, he and Jim Neiger are featuring a "Best of Florida" workshop.

Our studio guest is Mehlika Seval who guided Jim's photo tour of Turkey last year and is guiding Jim's upcoming photo tour of Mongolia this coming August!  Meli has worked with a number of photographers, including strobist photographer, David Honl and can arrange a tour for your photoclub or individual tour.  Check out her website at .

Finally, Jim and Fred and James discuss 3D and what it may mean to photography's future - fad or a new tradition?  Come to our Facebook page and join in the discussion!

Also, keep in mind, Fred will be at Sunkin Gardens in St. Petersbug with RIck Sammon on Sunday, March 27th.  Go to to sign up.  If you are interested in an Everglades workshop that same weekend, go to and sign up!  There are still a couple open spots left.
