Who is Catherine you ask?

From her ‘about' page:

Many people have asserted that a portrait says as much about the photographer as it does about the subject. Looking at Catherine Hall’s evocative images, it’s easy to see what they mean. Despite the diversity of her subjects, from upscale New York City brides to underprivileged Appalachian children, Catherine’s images reflect a consistency of vision that arises from her empathetic approach to photography as a whole and to her subjects as individuals.

The ability to make this kind of connection is often an overlooked asset, especially among photojournalistic approaches that encourage photographers to remain detached observers. For Catherine, the objective stance has its moment, but it is not the only way (or necessarily the best way) to capture real emotions. “With things like the ceremony or the first dance—those iconic moments—I’ll step back, but I’m not a photojournalist in the ‘fly on the wall’ sense,” says Catherine. “The rest of the time, I’m interacting with my subjects. I love directing people and getting involved—and that interaction is what makes my work different from that of other photographers.”

New Podcast Page

In the past, we've been sending you off to another location to see the podcasts – how silly of us! Now, we've made a section of the planet5D site with all of the previous planet5D podcast archives – and now you can give us feedback by rating them as well.

You can find it in the menu at the top of most of the planet5D pages (called PODCAST) or simply visit this link

New Live page

We've also added a new planet5D live page. We're still going to be using UStream, however, with the problems we had with their chat, we've switched to a new IRC based chat that will give us more control and fewer problems. It is integrated into the live page – so you can see the live broadcast and the chat all in one spot. Please don't go to the UStream page to watch a broadcast – we won't be monitoring that chat room!

As a benefit, we've also created a new page for the HDSLR chat room which is open 24 hours a day for conversations around the world. You can join that at any time – people pop in and out around the clock.

This new chat room is also available via IRC clients (if you're familiar with those)… instructions for setting up your IRC client are on the bottom of the HDSLR chat page.

Who are we going to have on the show?

Here is a list of the live conversations we have scheduled right now. Please subscribe to the calendar to get all the updates (see below on how to accomplish that). We've got a great line up in work – we'll be talking to movie makers, industry leaders, manufacturers, and photographers using these great cameras. [events_list category=4]

NOTE: This schedule is still tentative, there are things that pop up all the time – so please keep your eye on the podcast schedule page for the latest updates.

How to subscribe to the HDSLR event calendar from planetMitch on Vimeo.

Since we've got a new sponsor for the podcasts – Kessler Crane and the Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly – we thought we'd help you subscribe to the podcast and HDSLR event calendar so you'll always know what is coming up!

This works for iCal and Google Calendar, but I don't know how to do it for Outlook and others. maybe someone could add the instructions for those in the comments?

Our new sponsor is Kessler Crane

I'm so excited about having Kessler on board and starting up these podcasts again!

I really do enjoy sitting down with folks and learning about them and what they're doing. I hope you enjoy the conversation too – and since you can ask questions in the chat room, I hope you feel a part of the whole event! Please stop in and meet everyone!
