This week on The Digital Story photography podcast: What to Expect at CES Las Vegas (first peek at 2014 products); From the Screening Room: Erin Manning: Up and Running with Lighting - Nimbleosity Report - TDS Fine Art Photography Workshop - All of this and more on today's show with Derrick Story.

Story #1 - CES Las Vegas - Smartwatches and wearables will probably grab their share of headlines. Players include Sony, Pebble, and Archos, just to name a few. I'm sure we're going to hear more about 4K TVs and streaming services. And there will probably be evolutionary announcements in the tablet sector.

The world of imaging is a bit harder to predict. I have NDA meetings with a handful of manufacturers, but I don't know of many actual announcements at the show itself, with the exception of the Samsung NX30 and Galaxy 2. They may use the venue to preview upcoming 2014 releases.We will however probably see some interesting things with 3D printing.

So maybe we'll have some fun surprises. I'll be reporting from Las Vegas for c't Digital Photography Magazine. You can see my posts on their Facebook page, Facebook.com/ctdigiphoto

Story #2 - From the Screening Room - Erin Manning: Up and Running with Lighting: Natural Light. Working with the light and diffusion. This week's featured artist is accomplished photographer Erin Manning. Her introductory movie sets the tone for this excellent title on natural light photography.
