I've gone Drobo, and I have lots to report about networking this robotic storage array. If that sounds intimidating, it isn't. And after listening to this podcast, you might start thinking about putting a hard drive, or a hard drive array (such as the Drobo) on your network to store images.

I've also published a couple weblog posts on the subject. Be sure to check out Drobo Hard Drive Back Up for Photographers and on the Inside Aperture site, Alas, No Aperture on my Drobo.

Stephen Johnson is a digital photography pioneer. His mastery of traditional technique combined with his forward thinking led him to the new world of digital imaging.

In this interview recorded in Orlando, FL at Photoshop World, Stephen talks about his seminal work, On Digital Photography, the evolution of digital cameras including how megapixels fit into that picture, and provides some great advice on how to best display your work. It's a terrific chat that I think you will enjoy. You can find out more about Stephen's ongoing projects and workshops by visiting www.sjphoto.com.

Multiple printers are easier to manage on a network than trying to connect them directly to your computer, or tougher yet, multiple computers. You can set up a network without spending too much. Basically you need a wireless access point, such as an Apple Airport Extreme, and a good USB hub.

network_printing.jpg

For my printer hub, I went with the Belkin Mac Mini USB 2.0 4PT Hub because it has the same footprint as the wireless base station (as you can see in the photo, hub is on the bottom).

Of course, when you estimate a job like this, you say to yourself, "two, maybe three hours." Listen to the podcast to see what happened in my case.

digiscoping_rig.jpg

So, your telephoto lens isn't powerful enough? No problem. Just find a spotting scope, or any type of scope, and hook up a digiscoping rig. In the podcast, I explain how.

You can also download a PDF explaining everything you need to know about DIY digiscoping. It's from my "classic" photography book, Digital Photography Hacks.

You can also download another PDF about the Walking Stick Mount, which is another tip that I cover in this week's show.

If you only had one digital photography book, would this be it? My biased answer is a resounding "Yes!" The Digital Photography Companion is off the press and headed to bookstores everywhere as you listen to this show.

Because you're a member of this virtual camera club, however, you deserve a little inside information. And that's exactly what you're going to get in this podcast -- interesting tidbits about the book that you can't get anywhere else. I've also typed up my notes in the TDS post titled, "The Digital Photography Companion": Author's Release Notes.

And remember, this is the official camera guide of The Digital Story. It even has the TDS logo on the back.

Cameras are useful for much more than just taking pretty pictures. They are sophisticated data capture devices that you can use to record important information. And because you always have a camera with you, even if it's a camera phone, you can use this functionality to make your life easier.

In this podcast, I discuss how I use compact cameras to never forget where I've parked, plus lots of other useful applications. This is handy stuff that will make your daily life better.

Compact cameras can deliver terrific video as well as stills. This week's podcast features a movie I captured at the Tampa Aquarium during an evening event sponsored by Kodak at Imaging USA.

The lights were on in the ray and shark pool, and I got down low with my G9 mounted on a Gorillapod to shoot the activity through the glass. You can hear conversations I have with passer-bys asking about the camera and its abilities.

iphoto_browser_tds.jpg

iPhoto users looking for a more robust photo management system don't have to search any farther than the just-released Aperture 2. There are a number of reasons why this is a logical transition.

I think the best reason, however, is how easy Apple has made the transition from one photo management system to the other. In this podcast, I discuss some of Aperture's advantages over iPhoto, then cover a few strategies for moving up to Aperture, including:

  • Transfer Single Images: In Aperture, go to File > Browse iPhoto Library. You can then drag the images you want into your Aperture library. (Aperture's iPhoto Library Browser is shown above.)
  • Creating Referenced Files to Your iPhoto Masters: If you hold down Command+Option while dragging from the iPhoto Browser to Aperture, you'll reference the imported images... no duplication. So you get to use your iPhoto images in Aperture without making extra copies of them.
  • Moving iPhoto Albums into Aperture: You can bring in entire iPhoto albums by using Aperture's Import command, choose Images from the pop up menu, and navigate to your iPhoto Library container. When you click on it, Aperture will show you all of your albums. Choose an album, and Aperture will import it and place it as an album within your selected project.

Mark Dahm, Adobe Product Manager

At Macworld 2008, Adobe announced Photoshop Elements 6 for the Mac. It is schedule to ship in March, but you can preorder now for $89, or $69 for the upgrade.

Back in October 2007, I interviewed Mark Dahm about Elements 6 for Windows, so it's only fair that I revisit Adobe for his take on the Mac version. In this interview we cover all things Mac, and there's a ton of good stuff to talk about.
