Two Articles Now Available Online (Podcasting & Inkjet-Related)

Hello everyone. I’d like to announce that I recently wrote an article on podcasting and audio, and contributed an image and testimonial about how I use a number of HP’s papers and printers. Both were published in Studio Photography magazine’s August issue.

This is the image I contributed to the inkjet article photographed in my favorite “city that never sleeps”:

I encourage all professional photographers based in the USA who like the online articles to request a free subscription to Studio Photography magazine. You’ll find a link to request a subscription on their home page. I think they do a fantastic job, and the articles are filled with great images and tips. If you live in Canada or Mexico, the free subscription option may also be available to you, but I’m not sure about that.

I am not an employee of the parent company, Cygnus Business Media, but I served as Editorial Director of a magazine called Digital Imaging Techniques (another Cygnus publication) for two years. You can find many previous online articles from Digital Imaging Techniques here. And to subscribe to my personal Inkjet & Imaging Tips Newsletter, just enter your e-mail address in the box in the top right corner of the home page.

Bye for now…

Review: Recommended Podcast about Travel Photography

A few days ago I had some time to catch up on some of the many podcast episodes I had sitting on my iPod, and came across a particularly informative episode from Derrick Story. Derrick is a talented photographer, and he’s also managing editor of the O’Reilly Network, Mac DevCenter, and O’Reilly Digital Media.

Derrick’s podcast is called The Digital Story, and the specific podcast about which I’m writing is podcast number 35, “Vacation Packing”. Derrick shared numerous travel tips for photographers of any level and I highly recommend listening online or by subscribing to his podcast on iTunes. In addition, podcast 34 has some tips by a guest who will be appearing soon on The Imaging Buffet Book Tour.

I look forward to sharing more “photo-related finds” in the near future.

Letter from the Editor:

Welcome to The Imaging Buffet! I look forward to making this an informative and entertaining place for anyone with an interest in digital imaging, photography, music or motion pictures. Each monthly issue (delivered in the first 10 days of each month), will feature a podcast, with supporting text and links to items mentioned on the audio program. Later every month another podcast will be added in the form of a TV and/or movie review by Queen B, who plays my wife in real life.

There are so many photographers and other artists whom I’ve worked with and learned from over the years, and I would like to thank the many podcasters who have paved the way for me to be a part of this amazing communication method.

I especially would like to thank my whole family, and of course my wife, Queen B, who is also a part of the show and who has always supported my goals and dreams.

APPETIZER: What The Buffet Is All About

FIRST COURSE: Interview With Harald Johnson

For our first show, I interviewed Harald Johnson, Author of Mastering Digital Printing 1st and 2nd Editions. Find Harald’s books here all on one page on Also visit his informative website: (Digital Printing and Imaging).

Mentioned during the interview: The DigitalFineArt Yahoo! Groups newsgroup, one of the largest such newsgroups on the internet, founded by Harald Johnson, and nearing 7,000 members.

SECOND COURSE: Interview with Ruth Knoll

For our second course, I interviewed Ruth Knoll, The Original Photoshop Widow (and wife of Thomas Knoll), co-inventor of Photoshop, about the Photoshop Soup2Nuts Summer Event (June 23rd/24th, 2006): (see post below for more info and links). Below is a link to a great online interview with both Ruth and Thomas Knoll about the event:

DESSERT: Podcast Shoutouts & Recommendations

This is the part of the show where I say thank you to podcasters who I respect and whose shows I listen to regularly. I’m going in order of my iTunes podcast window, so the first is C.C Chapman’s Accident Hash ( and the U-Turn Cafe ( C.C.’s podcasts are absolutely fantastic, with a mix of great independant music. C.C. just talks about his life as though the listener is in the same room with him, which makes it even more captivating.

He’s definitely a super cool home fry (listen and find out exactly what that means)!


iTunes Tip: Subscribe to Podcasts Faster & Easier


Here’s a quick tip that I haven’t seen mentioned anywhere else (though it’s very possible that this tip has been published because it’s so simple). Have you ever tried to subscribe to multiple Podcasts in iTunes and found yourself going back and forth to the Podcast Directory after clicking on each podcast’s subscribe button? Instead, just double click on the Purple podcast icon in the iTunes Source Menu (circled in red).

Then click on the “Podcast Directory” link in the bottom of your Podcast menu (circled in blue). Then choose podcasts, one by one from the Directory, and they will be added to your list of podcasts, without forcing you to select the directory link each time. I like to place the windows side by side for maximum effectiveness.


In this first podcast, I played a phenomenal song that I first heard on Adam Curry’s Daily Source Code. It’s Kevin Reeves’ “Shine.” Check it out at (search for Kevin Reeves). Or go directly to Kevin’s site, Another one of his songs, Mother (also recently played on the Daily Source Code) is also fantastic.
