Filed under: Podcast,Shutters Inc,Wedding — Bruce Williams @ 21:39

This week, Shelton talks about the photography workshop that he ran in Queensland last weekend,
plus the outcome of Dan and Kate’s wedding which Bruce shot last weekend.

Also, Richard Annable had some ideas for future photographic assignments.

Sorry guys and gals

No BTP this week either.
And we’re now in school holidays here in New South Wales, so for the next 2 weeks, I may have to settle with just getting one podcast out each week.
So, my goal at this point is to record a BTP this week coming and skip SL, and then next week, do SL but skip BTP (again).

Not this week…

Sorry guys.
I had some roofing contractors here through the week (for those interested in such things, they are replacing some broken tiles, re-doing the ridge capping, sealing and repainting) and they are one NOISY bunch of tradies!
So, it was just pointless me trying to record this week.

This week, Bruce and Shelton call for submissions in the next SI listener assignment… landscapes.

Shelton talks about choosing the right lens for portrait work,
he also talks a bit about wedding photography (I’ve got a wedding to shoot next Saturday),
Shelton’s wedding shoot checklist,

you’re all hangin’ out to know who won the natural light window portrait competition! 🙂

Drum roll please…

Shutters Inc – episode 090

This week, some more natural light window portraits…

Remember, you have until Wednesday (of this week, Australian time) to get your submissions in to

Also this week, Bruce attempts a bit of DIY sensor-cleaning much to Shelton’s horror!
For those interested in having a go, a couple of sites worth checking out are:

Cleaning digital cameras
Visible dust

My sensor prior to cleaning! Far from perfect, but an improvement nonetheless!

Also, Gary Hegenbart wanted to share a macro he did by reversing his lens.

Three in a row

Sorry guys. Next week, I promise!
My cousin and her boyfriend left today (Saturday), so this week coming I will definitely be able to include SL on the “To do list”.
Thanks for not giving me grief over this unexpected break!

Shutters Inc – episode 089

Filed under: Available light,Podcast,Shutters Inc — Bruce Williams @ 22:05

Yes, I’m publishing a day early this week as I have a recording session tomorrow night which would prevent me from publishing then.

This week, “second wedding photographer” etiquette,
Bruce’s photos of the lunar eclipse,
Shutters Inc does in fact have ANOTHER female listener,
we discuss the idea of video podcasts,
plus Shelton discusses subordinate/dominant relationships within photographs.

And, as discussed in the podcast, here are the submissions received so far in the “natural light window portrait” assignment.
I am deliberately NOT putting people’s names beside the images.
You each know your own image, but that’s it.
Giggle giggle.
