Welcome to The Fotobug podcast #95 featuring our guest, Gunther Wegner!  Gunther recently released his latest timelapse file "African Skies 2" and also updated his software program LRTimelapse.  You can see the entire video at www.lrtimelapse.com and while there, I recommend downloading a trial version of LRTimeLapse.  If you like it, use FOTOBUG when you check out and Gunther will discount the price by 10%!  In addition, you can download an HD or 4K version of "African Skies 2" and the funds help animal conservation in Africa.

Fred and Jim also show their "simple camera photos" taken with their cell phones and in the news, Sony and Nikon have announced new cameras, Sigma has a 1.4 50mm lens available, plus clever inventors have created a ball camera that takes 360 panoramic images.

The Iceland workshop is full (although we can accommodate up to 2 more photographers), but coming up in April is the Tampa Bay Shootout and the Black Hills Shootout in September.  Coming up in October is the Slovenia workshop "Fall in the Julian Alps" and lots more!  Keep checking www.outdoorphotoworkshops.com for these and more!
