You’ve seen it in action with our #TNTBootcamp  series, now we’ll dig into the reasons why this tool has become so popular, some good and not so good uses of it and we’ll get to chat a bit about Ronnie’s brand new *Hangout Training Product* just launched at http://AllAboutHangouts.com/launch-special @108210288375340023376 has been a software trainer for many years and that shows when he does his hangout presentations.

Many of us have learned a thing or two (or more!) from him via his helpful public shows and public postings. And now for the first time, there is a structured training product he has created so we can get the best hangout training around on our own schedule. He likes to say it takes you from Hangout Basics to Total Hangout Confidence. *Watch Previous Episodes* YouTube Playlist (Season 1): http://bit.ly/1mV7BJY  YouTube Playlist (Season 2): http://bit.ly/1xLqchs Flipboard by @115091224082668507135: http://flip.it/BrEMe  #TNTBootcamp airs every 3rd Monday at 11:30am PT / 2:30pm ET Please RSVP 'YES' to be added to our invite list. #hangoutsonair #hangoutmastery #hangouts #hangoutsforbusiness   #TNTBootcamp - Ronnie Bincer2015-01-19 20:30:00182

Alan Shapiro3,998,206I'm continually flabbergasted (I love saying flabbergasted. Say it with me. Flabbergasted. Now say it ten times while pretending you just got your tongue pierced. Cool.) at the sheer number of certain products available for photographers. Choosing a camera bags has got to be one of the more time consuming and frustrating experiences. And a bag is one of the products that is really important right? We're carrying expensive gear around and want to protect it. But then it has to be comfortable. And easy to use. After spending far too much time searching online and walking the aisles of B&H, Adorama. PhotoPlus Expo most recently in search of the perfect camera bag, I decided to ask a friend, +Peter Waisnor from +Tenba to spend a half hour with me to talk about choosing a bag and what to look for in a bag (while promising me to stay as neutral as possible despite making *the best bags in the world.*) Join us tonight from 8:30pm - 9:00pm EST (5:30pm - 6:00pm PST) for our Hangout On Air (which will be recorded so if you can't make it, no worries. You can watch it online later)Picking a camera bag...what to look for and how to decide what's right for you2013-10-28 01:30:0079

SmugMug47,121Have you ever wondered how to get your photos picked up by ad agencies? How does a photographer get their foot in the door? These are questions many of us have thought about before, since photography (and ads) are everywhere we look. Well, SmugMug Pro @114056084994793924628 helped answer some of those question during a recent SmugMug podcast (bit.ly/ZsDwsb). But, we found, that the interest in this subject is off the charts, and the follow up questions for Alan have been coming in fast and furious. So Alan has volunteered to spend an hour answering nothing but your questions in a live, On Air Google Hangout!  _Join SmugMug's Rocky Bowels and Michael Bonocore as they ask your questions to Alan Tuesday, June 11th at 9:00PM EST._ Have a question you would like us to ask Alan? Simply add it as a comment here, on this event. Alan will also do his best to respond to any questions we do not ask during the broadcast, right here in the Google+ event. So make sure to RSVP, and post your best question for Alan. We will even be giving away a year of SmugMug Portfolio to one lucky person who asks a question before the end of the live hangout.  And yes, this will be recorded to view on our YouTube channel.  #Photography #Advertising #Commercial #SmugMug #SmugMugProWhat Ad Agencies Want From You - Interested in Fashion or Commercial Photography?2013-06-12 03:00:0076

TTIM 20 – Heart of Africa with Natalia Stone

I don’t think many people have ever been to Chad. I don’t even think many people would be able to pinpoint the location of Chad on a map of the world. However no location is so remote, inhospitable, and dangerous that it is able to scare away somebody who has the thirst for adventure and exploration that +Natalia Stone has.

Listen to my interview with Natalia to learn all about the wild beauty of the Sahara, the tribes of the Omo Valley, the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, and the harsh life of the salt traders of northern Ethiopia.

TTIM 21 – Travel Writing with Jens Lennartsson

My guest for this episode of The Traveling Image Makers podcast is Swedish travel photographer +Jens Lennartsson.

I got to know Jens through some articles he had published online and I immediately became a fan of his writing and of his photography. I though he has some truly inspiring opinions on the subjects of travel photography, writing, and visual storytelling, so I asked him to be a guest on my show. He graciously accepted and we recorded this conversation shortly afterwards.

6 Tips for Photographing During Winter Nights

Having recently been to Norway, well north of the Arctic Polar Circle during winter, when hours of daylight are short and temperatures are low, I became quite aware of the fact that those conditions are far from ideal, both for our bodies and for our equipment. Before leaving on that trip, I made a list of precautions to take so that long hours spent out in the dark and cold would not make me feel miserable, or worse be wasted by equipment failure.

With this article, I want to share some tips I’ve learned shooting at night in cold climates that have helped me make the most of the experience.

Apollo and Daphne (1622-1625), Gianlorenzo Bernini.

Rome, Galleria Borghese

Nothing can prepare for the amazement you feel when seeing for the first time such a masterpiece up close. To think that Bernini started sculpting this when he was only 24 is mind-boggling!

Visiting the Galleria Borghese will also afford you the possibility to admire three more large sculptures from his early period ("Aeneas, Anchises, and Ascanius", "The Rape of Proserpina", and "David") and a few busts. Add to that works by Canova, Caravaggio, Raphael, Titian and others, numerous Roman statues and mosaics and you will understand why this is such a great place for art lovers.

More to come...

Visiting the Galleria Borghese will also afford you the possibility to admire three more large sculptures from his early period ("Aeneas, Anchises, and Ascanius", "The Rape of Proserpina", and "David") and a few busts. Add to that works by Canova, Caravaggio, Raphael, Titian and others, numerous Roman statues and mosaics and you will understand why this is such a great place for art lovers.

TTIM 19 – Let’s Be Honest with Paul Pichugin

I have known Australian travel and landscape photographer +Paul Pichugin for a few years and I was always attracted by his positive personality and admired him for his work and his huge success on social media. It was therefore a big surprise for me to read about the struggles and doubts he described in one of his recent blog posts, Let’s Be Honest.

As I think Paul’s difficulties are common to many photographers, who sometimes find it hard to translate popularity into real business, I wanted to interview him for the podcast and I am truly happy that he accepted to be my guest and open his heart once more to talk about art, business, social media and their relationship.

We didn’t just talk about the business side of things, of course, but we chatted at length about Paul’s recent trip to Antarctica, which is such a fascinating and sought-after destination for photographers. If you ever intend to go there, you should definitely listen to this episode.

One More From The Alhambra

In the space of about 90 minutes in a single evening, I shot a few dozen photos of the Alhambra from the Mirador de San Nicolás in Granada, each one with varying light conditions... and none of them disappointed.

Late afternoon is definitely the best time to photograph this iconic monument.

TTIM 16 – Jim Zuckerman

Here is the second interview I did while I was in Venice for the carnival. I was introduced to +Jim Zuckerman by my other guest, Robin Yong and of course I asked if I could interview him.

Jim was very kind as he invited me over to his hotel for a coffee and a fifteen-minute talk on the sofa, that you can listen to in audio and watch in video below.

I'm in the market for a new tripod.

My ideal tripod needs to be tall (I am 187cm, or about 6'2"), yet fold down to a compact size and be lightweight. That probably means having 4 sections instead of 3, but it's a compromise I am willing to make.

It has to have an extensible and removable central column and the legs must open so that the base is very close to the ground.

It does not need to hold a lot of weight, as I am shooting mirrorless Fujis, so I don't have anything too hefty to support.

I love my Gitzo Traveler series, ultra-compact tripod but it has a couple drawbacks. Having thin legs and 5 sections, it is not very rigid and sturdy. It is also too short and forces me to bend too much. I am going to keep it anyway, because the quality is insane and it fits inside my shoulder bag, when folded, so it is perfect for a walk in the... more »

It is also too short and forces me to bend too much. I am going to keep it anyway, because the quality is insane and it fits inside my shoulder bag, when folded, so it is perfect for a walk in the city at night, but I need more stability for when I am out in nature.

If I were to get another Gitzo, I would get the . GT2543L, because it comes up to 179cm when fully extended, yet it folds down to only 61cm, which makes it fit inside carry-on luggage, if necessary. It looks like a good compromise between stability and portability.

I can also find it on amazon.it at €667, or 30% off the list price of €952.

I am willing to consider alternative suggestions, if they are significantly cheaper and yet high quality, or have higher quality for the same price. Can anyone recommend some?___

TTIM 15 – Walking Around Venice with Trey Ratcliff

In recent years, I’ve taken the habit of going to Venice at least once a year for the Carnevale, a great festival where people dress up with fancy and elaborate costumes for two weeks. It’s just one big feast for photographers, especially considering those people will pose for you for free. Naturally, it tends to attract lots of photographers, many of them from abroad.

This year, I went to Venice with the aim of meeting up with and interviewing a few of those photographers and this is exactly what I did. One of them is my good friend, popular photographer and traveler extraordinaire +Trey Ratcliff.

Besides being a great artist, Trey is just a nice warm-hearted person, who has some very interesting insights on travel, life, the universe, and everything. Let me just say that this interview was not just aboutcamer... more »

Besides being a great artist, Trey is just a nice warm-hearted person, who has some very interesting insights on travel, life, the universe, and everything. Let me just say that this interview was not just about cameras and places, even though we did talk quite a bit about the countries he visited on his way to Italy. You will just have to listen to it to know what I mean.___
