Welcome to The Fotobug podcast 129! In recent news, Apple has acquired camera technology company Linx for $20 million, Ricoh established an initiative to salvage, clean scan and return photographic prints found in the area devastated by the March 2011 earthquake in Japan. Adobe just released a Creative Cloud version of Lightroom, and if you want a really big lens, there is a NASA lens available right now on eBay. For more details and more recent news items, be sure to listen to the entire podcast!
Jim and Fred also do a review of the original Lytro cameras! If you have one and would like to share you experiences with our viewers, please email us, or post the information on our Facebook page.
The Fotobug theme for the month of May is Macro Light Painting so Jim and Fred present an introduction to a technique that Jim has been developing to carefully apply light to very small objects such as the nautilus shell above. Be sure to watch the entire podcast to learn how to create your own images like the one above.
