Shutters Inc – episode 200

Filed under: Lightroom 4,Podcast,Shutters Inc — Bruce Williams @ 12:00

Wow, 200 episodes!
This week, a great post on being true to your own vision, and why the journey of your photography career is a lot like a bus route,
(unfortunately, it appears that this link is already broken, even before I get this episode up, so it’s a good thing I summarised the theory in the podcast!),
Susan Menis wrote in to congratulate me on the milestone (thanks, Susan),
Kain Tietzel is moving from iPhoto to LR and now has to tackle the daunting task of setting up good workflow practices for 12,000+ images (good luck with that, mate!).
So, I look at some basics of database management within Lightroom, including
* where to set up your catalogues,
* whether to use one or multiple catalogues,
* and heirachial keyword topographies.
Nathan Chilton also gave us another Lightroom tip, in the form of how to sync the images from a ‘one shoot, multiple cameras’ scenario AFTER the fact. His description of the process is here.
Which led me to share an idea I’d had on how to make sure you COULD get all photos in sync later on.
A quick note that I’ll be away on holidays next week, so there won’t be a podcast next week.
Cheers!

Shutters Inc – episode 199

Filed under: 700si,film,Minolta,model release form,Podcast,Shutters Inc,Sydney meetup — Bruce Williams @ 12:00

This week, an apology for my ‘facebook fail’.
The reason there’s been no podcast for the last 3 weeks is because I was once again involved in photographing and videoing Sound Business Plan for ARN up at Hayman Island.
Sounds cushy, I know, but it was intense work.
The nest Sydney Meetup (#23 – Black Friday) will have already happened by the time you read this. We’re shooting a ‘European gypsy/fortune teller’-themed shoot.
And just because I don’t cram enough stuff (and stress) into my life, I’ve been out and bought a roll of 200iso Kodak film and a battery for my old Minolta 700si. At this meetup, I will be (or ‘was’?) shooting digital AND film simultaneously. Can’t wait to see if the difference is as noticable as everyone suggests.
Carl Hemmings sent me a link to a Peter Hurley video, where he discusses posing techniques, specifically for the head. I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS VIDEO ENOUGH! Allocate 15mins of your day and watch this (if, like me, you need help with posing your subjects). Awesome tips.
Adobe Reader 10.2 for Android and iOS is out now and allows for text markup and signing of pdf’s directly on your tablet/phablet/phone. Very excited about this. Custom digital model release forms, here we come!
Also, I’m hoping to get hold of Shelton for ep #200. Watch this space.
And speaking of Shelton, he and Glynn have just passed the 20,000 fans/friends mark on Facebook for Creative Photo Workshops! Well done, fellas!
