Episode 331 – Lambs to the slaughter

Filed under: Podcast,Shutters Inc — Bruce Williams @ 12:05

This week, Glynn rips into my Little Red Riding Hood images (facebook) – (my photography website).

Then, we had 3 listeners who were brave (or is that ‘stupid’?) enough to submit their images for critique.
First up, Rob “Johnny-on-the-spot” Coates…

No podcast this week

Sorry one and all, but with Glynn galavanting around the globe again, I decided to give myself a week off too.
Back next week!

Episode 330 – Goodbye again

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

This week,
Glynn responds to David Marland’s “Agree Disagree” comments,
apparently, everything is horrible, or at least it appears that 80’s portraiture was, anyway!,
although a guy called Dean Collins had a handle on it.
You could buy 6 hours of his lighting training on DVD for US$150,
or you could just jump on youtube.
Lytro decides it’s time to rethink their core business, and it’s not lightfield cameras.
Which reminded me about the coming-soon action movie, Harcore Henry, which is shot almost entirely in the first person (which I said on the podcast was ENTIRELY shot that way, but that is not the case).
Peter Stewart has published a bunch of his shots, both before and after post-production.
I came across a collection of images that was intriguing. Glynn wasn’t so impressed, but are you surprised by that?
In the last week or so, we’ve all heard about Adobe jacking up the price of Creative Cloud for Australian subscribers because of the fall in the exchange rate. This prompted David Marland to ask if it wasn’t time for another discussion about alternatives to LR/PS.
Which led me to a site called, surprise surprise…. alternativeto.net!
They’ve got suggestions for LR alternatives, and PS alternatives. But you can also enter the name of any other software to get more suggestions.
I also found another list of alternatives.
Adam told us about the post that claims Sony’s dive into mirroless cameras with 35mm sensors was a “fatal” mistake.
But the Sony fans hit back.
Plus there was the guy who wanted to light not one, but two “Flying Bulls” acrobatic planes whilst they were in the air!
Grant Palmer alerted us to one of the many April Fools pranks doing the rounds this week.
Steve Peters wants us to consider the possibility that we photographers are a grumpy bunch.
We want your images to critique. And to get the ball rolling, Glynn critiques 6 of his own images from India.

Episode 329 – Aching hearts (take #2)

Filed under: Podcast,Shutters Inc — Bruce Williams @ 14:28

This week, Glynn gives us a blow-by-blow account of the India trip.
Images we discuss include:

Then, I finally got around this week, to reading David du Chemin’s free e-book “Ten”. If you haven’t read it yet, you should do so. It’ll only take half an hour, and might just get you thinking in some new ways about your photography.
This week, Sony announced the forthcoming RX10mk3, which looks to be one VERY competent bridge camera.
BBC Four has either just run, or is currently running, a series called “Colour: The Spectrum of Science”. This video makes it seem like it could be quite interesting.
Carl goes all steampunk on us, with this awesome retro-inspired keyboard.
Rajesh Kumar told me about a new Android app he’s developed called Lamhaa. The idea is to hook up photographers with potetnial clients based on location. Check it out if that seems like your thing.
David Marland told us about Maxim Magazine’s little faux pas, where they thought it would be a good idea to put a plus-sized model on the front cover, but then airbursh her to make her slimmer. Say wha?
Adam wanted us to know that Yahoo! is up for sale, so if you want to buy a slice, get your cheque book out now. You have ’til April 11th.
And Steve Peters points us to a blog post that reminds us that sharpness isn’t the only criteria we should look for in a lens.
