Fotobug - Episode 130 - Light Painting Basics

May 17th, 2015

Welcome to The Fotobug podcast number 130!  In recent news, Canon releases an advisory regarding sensor defects on the Rebel T6i/T6s, Wyoming law makers pass a really, really dumb law that could have a very serious effect on photographers, MIT researchers have developed an algorithm that will allow cameras to remove glass reflections from your images, and former students from the robotics lab at UC Berkley are coming out with Lily, a UAV that will follow and videotape (or photograph) holding a special puck - a super selfie!

Also - May 29th is the last day to take advantage of Adobe's Creative Cloud subscription for an 1 time annual fee of $29.95 per month.


Continuing with May's theme of Light Painting, Fred and Jim present instruction on the basics of light painting - some of the equipment required, how to set up and prepare the camera, and how to apply light to the subject - weather it is a small table-top setup or a large full scale scene like the the cabin above.  Please share your light painting images with us via our Facebook page!  If you have questions on the technique, please send us an email!

This month's theme is sponsored by the amazing folks at Hunts Photo and Video.  Here are the following specials good for the entire month of May. To take advantage of these specials, call Andrea at 781-662-8822 and mention The Fotobug!
