Episode 358 – Guest: Craig Wetjen

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

This week, Craig Wetjen joins me for a chat about shooting the moon, the stars and people.
He threw me this link as a starting point for moon photography.
And here are his couple of images from the supermoon this past week.


I came across these cinemagraphs by Julien Douvier (which I suspect we may have covered once before?).
And for a trip down memory lane, check out Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential Images of All Time“.
David Marland came up with something a little out of the ordinary (for this podcast, anyway).
Adam found the Spray Printer,
and Elton John’s photo collection.

Episode 357 – Gear for travelling

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

This week, one of the best 2016 Supermoon photos,
although Malcolm Fackender did a pretty bang up job with his, too!
Official White House photographer Pete Souza’s favourite photos of Obama,
How the BBC shot the iguana chase scene,
and the cheating wife caught by drone.
Carl likes the look of the Nikon D5600.
Adam sent us the video of the SLR Camera being sliced in half by a 60,000 PSI waterjet,
and the news that Affinity Photo is now available as a free beta on Windows.

Google has been busy this week, with an update to the Photos app,
plus two new pieces of software:
Photo scan (here’s a video to watch),
and software designed for smooth upsizing of low-res images called RAISR.
Glynn is intrigued by how different portrait prizes are judged.
And no lens? No problem! Hitachi is working on a lens-less camera!
And David Marland reviews “When photography really works” by Val Williams.
Grab it on Amazon here.

Episode 356 – Lots of tours

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

This week, Glynn’s got lots of tours in the planning,
Adobe announcs GST to be added to Australian customers’ invoices as of December 1, 2016.
I came across this guy trying to sell photo paper on Ebay… and failing.
David Marland sent us down a rabbit hole of home made cameras.
There was the pinhole camera from driftwood,
and a replica Leica M3 made of paper,
which was inspired by a Czechoslovakian pinhole paper camera of the 70’s.
Of course, with Glynn’s Dory-like attention span, that led us off to another project… the Lego camera.
Tony White sent us this video of Adobe’s Jason Levine going all “hair metal” during a keynote.
Seems GoPro should be renamed GoD’oh! as the Karma drone/UAV gets recalled. There is also specualtion that the company is pretty soon going to bleed dry.
Glynn found an article on dynamic range, which he had no interest in at all, but thought that I might. Analysis next episode!
There was also the amateur astronomer who trekked 60,000 miles around the globe, shot 37,000 images, and then compiled a 360 degree scrollable/zoomable panorama of the night sky! Clearly, an underachiever! 🙂
Here’s the story, and here’s the image.

Episode 355 – The un-named episode

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

This week, in no particular order…
Congrats once more to Mike Hollman on being awarded the top gong for architectural photography at the Siena Awards in Italy.
Glynn told us about the Dragonfly camera array,
the S.P.U.D., a pop-up 24” display you can take anywhere,
Adorama TV’s Next Top Photographer,
a Nikon review for Carl,
a fairly nasty review of the GoPro Karma,
and Microsoft’s Surface Studio.
There’s a docu coming to cinemas and iToons on December 9 of this year called “Harry Benson : Shoot First”. Check out the trailer here.
Looking for some image making/manipulating/cataloging/etc software? The ultimate software list ought to help you out!
David Kembrey told us about Loupedeck, a hardware controller for Lightroom.
Tony White brought us the skinny on GearEye, a system for cataloging all your gear so you know where it is at all times.
David Marland’s book review cover two books this week:
“Photography: A Concise History”,
and “Photography: The Definitive Visual History”.
