Hi all,
I’ve just returned from a weekend trip to Melbourne to attend Shelton’s Advanced Flash Workshop.
The plan was that after the workshop, we were going to sit down for a chat via a Zoom field recorder.
Two events brought that idea undone.
1. Some ‘guru’ (who we won’t name) forgot to bring the field recorder, and
2. We were all so shattered by the time we finished shooting (an hour and half after the scheduled wrap time!).
I dare say that had we had the recorder, we’d have been too mentally wasted to concoct anything remotely listenable anyway!
So, I’m sure we’ll talk about the workshop in next week’s episode!

Shutters Inc – episode 149

This week, just a chat as we catch up with Shelton post-Los Angeles.
Turns out, the “creative photo workshop” is an idea whose time has come.
Shelton talks about all the aspects of the trip, including the Venice Beach shoot.
Last week, I was given an Intuos4 graphics tablet by the nice folks at Wacom here in Australia. I’d never used one before, but having now done some photo retouching with one, I don’t think I could go back to photo manipulation with a mouse ever again!
Oh, and it’s pronounced Wah-com, not Way-com!
Shelton is looking into some of the plugins from Nik Software, including Viveza.
And he’s changed his mind on camera straps, after having been given a Black Rapid R-Strap whilst in LA.
He also discovered Hoodman loupes while he was at PMA.

Sorry one and all.
Shelton has hit the ground running since landing back in Oz, and we just couldn’t schedule any recording time this past week.
Fingers crossed for this (coming) week.
There’s lots to talk about!
