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.

San Diego International Fine Art Show (through 6/11/2006)

San Diego’s Museum of the Living Artist is exhibiting its first single medium international fine art show – and the medium is digital. The range of the art selected by Marilyn Kushner, Chair and Curator of the Prints and Drawings at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, spans the range of fine art one discovers in most contemporary shows. The exhibition runs through Sunday, June 11, 2006.

The exhibit is located in the heart of San Diego’s Balboa Park along with many of its cultural institutions – the Timken Museum, the San Diego Museum of Art, the Old Globe Theatre Complex, the Museum of Photographic Art, the Natural History Museum, the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center and more.
