It's still summer, so that means it's time for vacations… and that is no exception for us here at PhotoJoseph Studios. Ryan, the assistant/producer, was out of the studio Monday and Tuesday, leaving Joseph alone to manage the live show by himself, (It's Joseph's turn next week… he's flying off with his teenage kids to Sweden). Monday's show was an unboxing of the Behringer X AIR XR16, which was actually a very generous gift from a loyal viewer, (if only Joseph wasn't scrambling the week before his trip… this would have been set up by now). On Tuesday, Joseph installed a firmware update for the Panasonic Leica 12-60mm, and showed off the Image Stabilization. Wednesday, Ryan was back in the studio, therefore it was the first true test of the new setup using the Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K… it was also the first true streaming test of the Webcaster X2 from Epiphan Video. Thursday's show was geared towards learning about the subtleties of shooting a solar eclipse and other Astrophotography topics like the Aurora Borealis. Our guest was Jason McMurry, a local Klamath Falls photographer/videographer, who has experience with this and shared his tips and insights. If any of you in the USA are interested in photographing/recording the eclipse, this is definitely one to watch! And on Friday, we ended the week with two birds and one stone. Joseph talked about what gear he would be taking with him to Sweden, and the mentality behind the choices, all while we had TWO streaming events going at the same time, (that's right Egon, we crossed the streams). We had dual streams going to test the potential differences between streaming through Wirecast and streaming through the Epiphan Webcaster X2. Watching them side by side, as you can below, shows some very obvious differences. What can you see?

We hope everyone has a great weekend. And always remember, you can catch the Photo Moments LIVE every weekday at 9:30am PT.

One of my most devoted viewers has given a most beautiful gift to me... this incredibly capable Behringer X AIR XR16, a digital audio mixer to take my audio production to the next level!

A firmware update for the Panasonic Leica 12-60mm lens that comes with the GH5 was just released. Learn how to update, and then see just how good the Image Stabilization is, live! (use Chrome) http://av.jpn.support.panasonic.com/support/global/cs/dsc/download/fts/index2.html

I've got an Epiphan X2... so let's see how it does with the GH5! Sorry about the echo. We're testing out a new setup, so of course there will be kinks to work out... that's the fun of live.

Photographer Jason McMurry takes us through his insights into shooting Astrophotography (the Aurora Borealis, stars, milky way, the moon, etc) and shares his tips on how to photograph the total solar eclipse in Oregon coming up August 2017! (Skip to 21:03 if all you want is info on the eclipse).
I'm leaving for a family holiday next week, trying to balance out what I take between just being dad and still being a photographer/filmmaker/YouTuber. Packing for work and vacation at the same time... Also, today's show is dual-streamed from Wirecast (as I normally would) and the epiphan X2.
