FroKnowsPhoto RAWtalk 211: Kodak Ektachrome Is Back, Nikon Turns 100 + Triple Photo Critique  

Let's start off the show with an announcement. RAWtalk will be moving to bi-weekly opposed to each week. The reason for the switch is to allow us to focus on making more "Real World Reviews" and "5 Min Portraits".

This weeks show is brought to you by LEXAR. LEXAR is the official card and card reader of RAWtalk.

Starting at 50:05 we have the triple critique. First we start off by critiquing Todd's first time using the Canon 5D Mark IV. Next we check out Stephen's concert photos shot with the Canon 5D Mark IV. Finally we look at my low light concert photos as a recent show.

FroKnowsPhoto RAWtalk 210: Only Hire Photographers With Nikon Or Canon? + a 2,000,000 Gig Photo  

First things first do you notice anything different about the location?  If you guessed it’s a new location, you would be correct  This is the first show to be recorded at the FroFactory and we could not be happier to be in the space.  I am looking forward to what we will create over there. 


Brides magazine wrote an article that has since been changed but originally made the statement that you should only hire photographers to shoot your wedding who have either Nikon or Canon cameras.  Yea, that’s an interesting statement to make, we discuss at 24:30


It’s a NEW year, a NEW location and we have a NEW mentality and direction for where the content is going to take us this year.

I’m On A BOAT, Meridth’s New Cabinet Position and Apple Makes A $300 BOOK: FroKnowsPhoto RAWtalk 205  

Why was I on a BOAT you may ask? I went on what was called “Summit At Sea” which was a chartered cruise for entrepreneurs. I knew going into it that my focus was to meet people and strike up meaningful conversations. I did attempt Yoga but that didn’t end too well. Check out the entire discussion to lead off this weeks show.

The TRUE and Fascinating Story Behind the "Gary Fong Dome" (Interview): FroKnowsPhoto RAWtalk 204  

As you know, I love doing interviews.  When Gary Fong let me know he was going to be in Philly for a few days I invited him over to the loft to get on the show.  I got to learn about how he got his start as well as come up with the Fong Dome.  The interview starts at 3:56.


I want to remind you this episode was filmed the same day as episode 203 back on November 2nd.

The Most Distasteful Wedding Photo Ever, Instagram BANNED My Photo: FroKnowsPhoto RAWtalk 203  

Let’s start off with that distasteful wedding photo, yes it’s flat out distasteful.  On top of it being a not great photo it’s one of those photos as a photographer you simply say na, you know what, i’m not shooting that.  That’s the type of photo your friend takes with a cell phone but not you as a working professional. 17:29


Instagram decided to take down my halloween costume photo stating that it did not meet community guidelines.  I don’t know about you but i’ve seen photos of woman wearing far less and showing more that I guess are perfectly fine to be there. 


This weeks show is brought to you by RODE, WE LOVE RODE, we use RODE and you should check them out as well. 


Stephen loads us up with Photo News Stories, we have an 8TB Western Digital Hard drive for gear of the week and as always we round the show up with Flying Solo, Wheel of Fro and Memes.  


I hope you enjoy RAWtalk each and every week.

Should u have to #ASKFIRST before taking photos in public? LEGOS Are Cool FroKnowsPhoto RAWtalk 200  

First things first I must mention this is episode #200!!!! Yes that accounts for a span of four years worth of episodes which is pure insanity.  We could not have done it without all you guys watching and interacting with the show.  This show would also not be possible without Stephen who somewhere around episode 37 took the reigns on audio and quickly found himself editing and producing the show.  The show would not be where it is today if Stephen didn’t take so much pride in it.


The biggest news story of the week can be found at 28:12 of this weeks show and its about #AskFirst before you take photos.  Should you have to ask first if you’re in public or should you be able to just shoot?  What do you guys think?


Gear of the week brought us the NEW GoPro Hero5 which based off of this weeks show we just may need to tweak some settings on.


We have Flying Solo, Wheel of Fro and finally the MEMES.  If you would like to send in your meme’s please send them to and maybe we will showcase yours.


Again we could not do this show without you so here is a BIG THANK YOU!!!!

*SPECIAL EDITION* From our hotel room in Germany and Photokina 2016 it's FroKnowsPhoto RAWtalk 198  

Welcome to a special edition of RAWtalk all the way from our Berlin hotel room.  For those who did’ know, last week was Photokina which is held every other year in Cologne Germany.  Stephen, Todd and I made the trek to experience the show, see the announcements, shoot some photos and have some fun. 


We chose not to cover the booths again but we did set out to film another espied of the FroKnowsPhoto Show which I can not wait to share with you.  After Cologne we flew to Berlin to spend three days and film a Real World Review of the Apple iphone 7 plus dual camera system.  I have seen the images but I will leave it at that for now. 


There is no official sponsor but we gave a plug to our good friend and owner of LensCoat Scott Elowitz.  Check his stuff out, nature photographers swear by it.


Next weeks show will be back at the loft.  Thank you for your patience as we had two weeks without a NEW episode.  We should be good on shows for the next few months leading up to the end of the year. 


INSTAGRAM Goes All Zoomie, A Woman Shoots Down A DRONE, A Darkroom Bar?: FroKnowsPhoto RAWtalk 197  

Instagram now lets you pinch and zoom in on photos, what do you think about this? A bus driver in Virginia was cleaning her shotguns on the porch when a drone flew by, she shot it down. Do you think a darkroom / bar is a good idea or could it lead to some bad exposures? All this and more starting at 7:34 for photo news.
