Shutters Inc – episode 313

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

This week, Glynn gives us the run down of the Digital Show, at which neither Sony, Panasonic, or Canon were in attendance.
He was only happy with one image he shot for the whole weekend.
We were going to discuss a portfolio of images that Carl sent in, but somehow, I managed to skip it. Apologies Carl. I really liked it, too!
Adam brought us the story of the photographer who had his image misappropriated by ISIS,
and Amazon’s new Snowball… terabytes-a-plenty delivered to your door.
Reg and Adam both told us about Kono’s new 6ISO film.
Erin alerted us to Janet Jackson’s complete and utter misunderstanding of the value of social media,
Reg told us about the story on image manipulation in photojournalism,
and about the possibility of JPEG images soon having DRM.
Glynn was featured on the Ted’s Camera Store’s website.
The Leica Store in Taipei put an image on their website of one of Glynn’s customers.
What happens when you ask 12 photographers to work for free?
Western Digital announces that it’s buying SanDisk.
In the continuing tradition of artists limiting the use of photos of their performances, Glynn brought us the story of the newspaper who sent their cartoonist to a Foo Fighters concert.
And we forgot to mention the Pass The Camera project!
The photobook is laid up, but when I went to export it, InDesign told me the images were all low resolution! And when I checked, so they were. Grr. So, Glynn is sending me the neg strip, I’ll get them re-scanned, and then I can simply replace the low res images with the high res versions. Then we can get the book uploaded to Blurb. Hopefully, some progress to report next week.

Shutters Inc – episode 312

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

This week,
a potential breakthrough for low-light photography,
Sony to spin off its sensor division,
dpreview announces its awards for 2015,
Carl chimed in on the educational system/image ownership quandry,
as well as sending us a link to this video on some of the new features in Adobe’s Photoshop Fix for iOS,
Reg Vardy told us about this awesome little tripod on kickstarter… and for when the kickstarter campaign is over, here’s the home site,
Malcolm’s gorgeous Northern Lights image that Glynn mentioned,
Adobe throws the proverbial baby out with the bathwater, but at least apologies for it,
Steve Peters brought us the B+H scandal,
Adam linked us to a video of war photojournalism 2008-style,
Glynn got a chuckle out of this site which highlights some truly disastrous kickstarter campaigns, like….
Travel Europe,
Barak/Marijuana,
Quadcopter,
and emoji.
Wouldn’t you just love to buy an old photo in a junk shop for $2, only to find out it could be worth $5 million?
Sony’s Rx1R2… basically, an a7rii with a user-switchable built-in low pass filter. Noice!
And finally, from the “people we can’t stand, ’cause they’re so awesome” folder… sunset selfies.

No podcast this week

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

Sorry one and all, but a deadly bout of man-flu (or something equally debilitating) has laid our Glynn out flat for the week.
Apparently, even his normally recumbant recording pose was too much to handle.
As a result, we were unable to get a podcast in the bag this week.
Hopefully, next week!

Shutters Inc – episode 311

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

This week,
Sony has a new patent in the works which could mean even faster focusing for mirrorless cameras,
Adam told us about the school which is now making its students sign work contracts before allowing them to use school camera equipment,
the rapper busted for stealing someone else’s photo to use on one of his posters,
a reminder once again of why we should have 3 copies of our images,
and that famous iceberg composite image and just how much it has earned for its creator.
Glynn likes the idea of the Camera Restricta, which won’t let you take cliche photos,
and the NFL pro-photographer who covered a game with nothing more than an iPhone 6S.
Or how about the half hour TV show shot completely with an iphone?
Need to shoot a selfie with your dog? You need poochselfie! Like you even needed to be told. 🙂
But if you want to shoot the moon, you need Tiny Mos.
How destroying a lens made for new creative opportunities,
PETA suing on behalf of the selfie-ape,
and NASA releases hundreds of shots from the moon never seen before.
