I know this powder doesnt contain talc. But....has anyone experienced any white cast in photos?
The first time I used it, yes. I think I put it on with a too heavy hand. The next time I did not use as much product and it went on perfect.

It's mica and sunscreen ingredients that cause flashback. Talc does not cause flashback. Mineral sunscreens do because of their oxides contents cause light to bounce off the skin as do mica particles used in highlighters and illuminating products.
To avoid the ghostly look in photos, look for 'flashback-free makeup (no SPF) and setting powders'.

I didn't know sunscreen caused the white look in photos. Would all the it foundations with spf cause it as well?
Yes, foundations which contain SPF ingredients zinc oxide or titanium oxide can potentially cause flashback. Also, illuminating foundations can cause flashback, too. @erichu
