Photocast Network Roundtable Discussion

For something new and different, four members of the Photocast Network ( gather to shed a light on photography from all sorts of different angles. When can I call myself a photographer? How to transition from film to digital? How do Adobe Photoshop CS3 and Adobe Lightroom compare? How to get the best pictures in low-light situations?

Featuring John Arnold (Photowalkthrough), Ibarionex Perello (The Candid Frame) Chris Marquardt (Tips from the Top Floor) and Jeff Curto.

  1. Hi Jeff, I’ve only just started listening to Camera Position (i’m upto 22) I just wanted to say i’m finding it really usefull in my college work, i’ve found myself thinking a tiny bit more about my exposures instead of putting my DSLR onto rapid fire and filling up my card. (i perhaps should have said earlier i’m a National Diploma Photo Student in Hereford, England.) I also listen to tips from the top floor so i’ve got a nice mix of the techy tips and the creative side of photography (which is where i’m a bit of a moron at). I’ve downloaded the photo history lectures but not got around to listening to them yet (hmm a student voluntarily listening to a lecture… surly its never happend). I especially enjoyed number 22 i found it really interesting. Well I better get back to work.

    Keep it up and i look forward to listening to more podcasts

    Kind Regards

    Huw W-T

  2. Huw;

    Thanks for your comments… I’m glad you’re finding the podcasts helpful… I agree that Tips from The Top Floor is great, as are really all the other podcasts at (plug!)

    I have to admit that it’s hard to believe that as many folks listen to the history lectures as do, but I just found out from my college’s IT department that the history podcasts were downloaded an average of 3,000 times just last term! No one is more surprised by that number than I am!

    Thanks again, and thanks for listening… all the best in your studies!


  3. I found you through the PhotoWalkThrough podcast! I’ve added you to my subscription. I aslo became one of your 3,000 students on the Photo History college class!
    Thank you so much for doing that. I’ve always wanted to take a college couse in photography!

  4. Hi, Debbi… thanks for finding me! I’m hoping you find some useful content here.

    Glad you’ll be “in class,” too… feel free to send comments and questions!


  5. Jeff,

    I’m really enjoying all of your podcasts. Thanks for all the hard work. I can’t tell you how much I get out of all of them. I’m looking foward to part 2 on the zone system. I can’t wait.


  6. I was a little disappointed in the roundtable. Isn’t the point putting one question in front of several people and hearing several opinions? That happened at times, but it seemed dominated by one person talking about ‘their’ topic. Isn’t that what a standard podcast is for? The issues/questions should be chosen with the panel in mind.

  7. Thanks for the comment, Dirk; I’ll pass it along to the roundtable members. From a participant’s point of view, I would agree that it’s more fun when we’re “discussing” and not “preaching.”
