No podcast this week

Filed under: Blog — Bruce Williams @ 12:00

If you are on Facebook, you will no doubt have seen that sad news that Glynn’s dad passed away on Friday.
I’m fairly certain I speak for all of us when I say our thoughts are with Glynn and his family right now.
As a consequence, there is no podcast this week.

Episode 367 – Glynn’s new toy

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

This week, an interesting personal photography project… the Under-horse project. Yep, it’s as weird as it sounds!
There’s a bunch of photos which are (allegedly) NOT Photoshopped… although we’re not entirely convinced.
Lightroom… are you doing LR wrong? This blog post covers the image-management side of things quite nicely, for those who thought LR was JUST for processing.
A video/inforgraphic about the state of the camera industry in 2016.
And after going and having a look at it, I’m quite impressed with Affinity Photo. Thanks Peter!

Steve, Adam and Glynn all added this story to the list for this episode. Popular Photography (magazine) and its website, PopPhoto are no more.

Steve Peters sent us this link to a great Broncolor lighting tutorial, with heaps of great sample images,
11 photography books that new students must read,
and why photographers don’t get modern art.

Adam shared this video of Laowa’s weird macro lens in action,
along with this story about helicopter blades and camera frame rate syncronisation, which it seems EVERYBODY shared on social media this week!
The story behind the action photo that won Red Bull Illume,
another big camera store, Showcase (Atlanta, Ga) goes under,
and Hollywood’s greatest trick.

Carl brought us the story of the guys who wanted to create a “Google street view”-style image for underwater!

Glynn has a new toy! The new Tamron 70-200mm f2.8 VC G2 lens.
Skypixel is running a competition called “Australia from Above”. First prize is almost $27,000 worth of UAV/drone kit! Get into it!
He was also amused by some of the selfie-drone comments here.
4 basic lighting principles worth knowing,
and the guy who turned a Sony compact digital camera into a digital back for his old Nikon film SLR!

Episode 366 – Glynn leads off

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

This week, the Godox Wistro looks like a handy little pocket-sized flash to have in your kit.
One of the spots I’m heading to on my European vacation is Portimao in Portugal. The sea caves look like a photographer’s dream location!
The video about the drug overdose story is here.
Peter Sambell wrote to ask our opinions or knowledge of Affinity Photo, which seems like a competent replacement for Photoshop for those who, like me, are sceptical of Adobe’s pricing policies.
Adam shared this story about photo-sharing sites, and how and why the bots are beating you.
This simple web tool helps you find your ideal lens.
Art Wolfe wants to edit your RAW files for you!
Tony White shared this story about how this image of some strawberries is the new “blue dress”,
and some amazing images from Sony’s 2017 World Photography Awards.
Glynn likes the look of the new Elinchrom ELB1200… a Quadra on steroids.
After Beyonce was ably assisted by 300 synchronised drones UAV’s at the Superb Owl show, a Chinese company has gone one better with a fleet of 1000 drones flying together!
