Shutters Inc – episode 266

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

This week, Bruce’s new wheels,
Glynn and David still capturing portraits of D-Day vets,
Glynn’s cartoon,
Adam (I don’t need to write “Davidson” every time, do I?) alerted us to this story about a father who creates awesome photo-illustration-portraits with his kids,
Glynn is rather dismissive of Nikon’s marketing for the D810,
DPReview’s new DIY forum,
Sony NEX as digital back for 100 year old camera,
neat axial lighting,
the iPad app screen extension for Photoshop,
indiegogo is becoming a cesspit of people offering you nothing more than the opportunity to fund their gear purchases (bludger 1, bludger 2, bludger 3, bludger 4),
but wait… there’s more!,
Glynn talked about Simone Maynard, a Melbourne artist he’s known for almost 30 years. See her pic at the end of these notes, or check out her work on RedBubble,
Brian Houghton (whom Glynn mentioned last episode) wrote to thank us for highlighting his work,
the Lomo Instant camera project,
another awesome 4K nature timelapse,
which reminded Glynn about Baraka, a 1992 documentary directed by Ron Fricke (who 10 years prior created the brilliant Koyaanisqatsi),
and finally, Adam also brought to our attention this post at diyphotography about the link (or lack thereof) between the value of your gear and the value of your work.

Shutters Inc – episode 265

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

This week,
Bruce is bike shopping,
Mike Hollman awarded Nikon Ambassador for New Zealand,
Brian Houghton’s spectacular portfolio on Flickr and Photoboxgallery (watch out, it’s mostly NSFW!),
Glynn though this particular image would make a great 70’s velvet painting,
MDisc… Bluray on stone,
If you haven’t already grabbed yours, .photography domains are now available. Although if your current site name (like mine) is “photography.com”, then “photography.photography” is going to sound a bit silly/redundant.
500px will be the first site to offer Lytro sharing,
Glynn found that Rokinon offers Tilt Shift lenses,
Jared “FroKnowsPhoto” Polin got kicked out of Six Flags for his “I shoot raw” t-shirt,
Sony’s curved sensor,
the Panasonic FZ1000 with built-in 25-400 (2.8-4.0) zoom with 4k video and 1” sensor,
and Adam Davidson likes this crowdfunded autonomous drone, which will track you whilst you perform your sporting endeavour of choice, and keep you in the middle of the frame of your GoPro footage. Sweet.

Glynn is still a little jet lagged, so we’ll give it a miss this week. Definitely back next weekend.
