Jim has now returned from Iceland and presents a video of the workshop he helped organize along with Tim Vollmer. Ten photographers met Tim and Jim to see and photograph this interesting land. Hopefully after seeing the video, you will want to visit Iceland for yourself!

In the news, an octopus steals a photographer's camera. To see the video, visit our new website (still under construction!) at www.thefotobug.net. There are additional videos there and we have plans for a lot more, so you may wish to bookmark that page! Also dealing with the sea, can a saltwater encrusted lens be repaired by boiling it?  Well, Nikon recently did that!  Details on the current podcast!

Next time we have an interview with Artic/Antarctic photographer, David C. Schultz who is a Utah based photographer who arranges photo tours to those locations.

Please take time to rate us on iTunes and you may contact Fred at fred@thefotobug.com and Jim at jim@thefotobug.com. We would love to hear from you and answer your questions on our next podcast!

While Jim was in Iceland, Fred headed down to Naples, FL to catch up with Adam Jones and Mike Mathews at the exotic Frog workshop. Adam Jones is a Canon Explorer of Light and he and Mike Mathews have been running this workshop for several years in Missouri and this is the first time the workshop has been held in Florida. Keep an eye on Adam's website at http://www.adamjonesphoto.com. Adam also leads a number of other workshops, so please check out his website. The workshop consists of helping people with their macro skills as well as capturing frogs, lizards, snakes, geckos, scorpions, tarantulas and many other creatures that you would have to travel to several countries to capture.

In the news, Ilford will soon be releasing a pinhole camera complete with film and negative stock, Wacom is planning to release a new tablet and more.
