Photo Talk Plus, Episode 32, With Special Guest Troy Paiva

What a great show we had last night with the one and only godfather of light painting and night photography Mr. Lost America Troy Paiva.

In last night’s show we talked all about Troy’s work — his technique, his gear, his social engineering, his workshops, and lots of other tips on how you can make these sorts of photographs yourself. For a more thorough run down on all of Troy’s tips and techniques be sure to get a copy of his third book “Light Painted Night Photography” on Trey Ratcliff’s Flatbooks store. Also be sure and check out Troy’s work at his website

Joining Lotus Carroll and myself last night were Keith Barrett, Ricardo Lagos, Amy Heiden, Scott Frederick and Ian Ference.

We also discussed the new Canon mirrorless camera, Scott Jarvie’s upcoming Photography Decathlon, the winner of our SmugMug / Blurb Books photo project contest Jordana Wright, a wedding photographer who is being threatened with a $300,000 lawsuit, the new Epson V700 scanner that I ordered from Adorama yesterday, a photo by Alex Koloskov and lots more!

Thanks as always to our AWESOME sponsors Adorama, Blurb Books, Drobo and SmugMug. Be sure to check them out at,, and
