Episode 328 – Guest : Richard Bartlett

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

This week, I’m joined by Richard Bartlett, a photographer from Newcastle (just an hour north of me).
We discuss where it all started for him, and what has helped shape his craft to where it’s at today.
The Batman image we discuss on the podcast even ended up being printed in this weekend’s Newcastle Herald Newspaper.

Episode 327 – Guest : David Kembrey

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

This week, my guest in-studio is David Kembrey.
David liked the look of a new portable, collapsible beauty dish from Profoto,
Polaroid’s BrightSaber,
Tether Tools’ Case Relay provides continuous power for many DSLR and mirrorless cameras,
and their RapidMounts help you to keep that off-camera flash exactly where you want it.
Ready for inclusion on the People We Don’t Like list are some of the winning photographers from the 2016 Underwater Photographer of the Year awards.
Other stories David liked included:
A Photographer shares what it’s like to swim with humpback whales,
The World Press Photo awards disqualified 16% of finalists this year,
The top 5 reasons to move up to a 35mm “full frame” sensor,
Fujifilm to discontinue production of FP-100C instant film,
and stacking multiple images into one composite frame.
Adam also shared some storied including the headline that Instagram is about to curate your feed,
new start-up, Parachut aims to be the “Netflix of camera gear rental”,
using a UAV to map a large physical object (like a statue!) to then create a 3D printed (scalde-down) replica,
and the news that Flickr Uploadr is no longer free.
We also MEANT to cover the story (David brought it along, and Adam also shared it) about Matt Granger’s decision to ditch Sony’s E mount mirrorless system from his professional gear lineup.
David Kembrey’s images can be found on facebook and instagram.

Episode 326 – Guest : David Marland

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

This week, I’m joined by listener David Marland.
David was impressed with some of Glynn’s images from India,
Sigma’s new MC-11 adapter,
Samsung’s Galaxy S7/Edge with its new Sony imaging sensor,
Lee is lengthening the headaches of photography-widows everywhere with their 15 stop ND filter (a 2 second exposure becomes 17+ HOURS!),
the bazooka approach to UAV control,
the pros and cons of selling your photography gear,
and he found this collection of images designed to make you feel anxious.
Sony have announced a new wireless trigger system which includes high speed sync.
Adam shared the story of the photographers who destroyed a bunch of bus shelters in Alberta Canada.
Adam and Steve Peters both shared this great story about the pair of photographers who build pin hole cameras out of the very landscapes they are shooting.
Steve Peters exceeded my capacity for the technical with this story about the problems with modern lens design,
and told us about this collection of swappable lenses for your mobile phone’s camera.
Carl Hemmings sent us the link to a beautiful new video by Trey Ratcliff (with monologue by Alan Watts).
Reg Vardy sent us this piece of satire about an alledged Nikon recall of as-yet-unreleased cameras by Kirk Tuck,
and David Jones sent us this piece about RAW workflow between your Android 5.0 (or later) phone and Lightrrom Mobile.

Episode 325 – Guest: Steve Peters

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

This week, Glynn makes a brief appearance “from India” to talk about photography and gaming,
and then, I’m joined by listener Steve Peters.
Adam sent us a story about Manuel Cafini’s multi-flash-burst (strobing) photography,
the sad saga of Little Masterpieces Studio and the customers they burned,
and the Japanese farmer who had to chop down a tree in order to stop photographers from trespassing on his land.
Steve found the ONE Project which is apparently sending one camera from person to person, so each person can take an image. I think I’ve heard of this being done somewhere else, too.
Steve also liked this article about “walking the arc” or looking for alternate points of view. We shouldn’t always default to the view from eye-height!
And finally, the story of David and Victoria’s son, Brooklyn, who got tapped as the photographer of a BTS shoot for Burberry.
