Episode 385 – Glynn wants a new intro

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

This week, Sony announces the new Cyber-shot RX10 IV, which looks to be my idea of a perfect travel camera.

Adam sent us this story about Robert Irwin (Steve Irwin’s 13-year-old son) who is poving to be an amazing photographer. Onya Bob!

And an Australian photographer and his model arrested over nude photoshoot at ancient Egyptian temple.
After we had recorded, David Kembrey linked to this article, where the photographer in questions defends his actions.

Steve Peters shared this story about the recent sale of the building from which L&P Photographics was operating. The building was also the former studio of legendary Australian photographer, Max Dupain. Fears are rife that the history of the building will be lost under the new ownership.
If you don’t recall Dupain’s work, he’s famous for (amongst others) this iconic 1937 image…

Glynn likes the look of the new Spekular LED Lighting,

Joey Lawrence (his website) has released a new hour-long documentary (and accompanying book) called “Born From Urgency”. There’s a story and video link on petapixel,

Godox has just released their new Xpro flash commander, with control of up to 16 groups (view 5 at a time on screen), with output control down to 1/256th power!

How’s this for a mobile darkroom?

DJI is teaming up with Nat Geo to give people the opportunity to try out their drones UAV’s at no charge!

And in the “useless blog post” category, we have instructions on how to turn crappy snapshots into even crappier HDR “portraits”.

Also, I forgot to check my e-mail before we recorded, so those stories and links will be in the NEXT episode! Apologies to those who wrote in this week.

Episode 384 – The Reg Vardy Conundrum

Filed under: Podcast,Shutters Inc — Bruce Williams @ 13:30

This week, David Marland steps in for Glynn.
The LR-replacement which I’ve adopted on Linux, darktable, is coming to Windows. A very early port of the app is available for anyone who wants to dip their toes in the water, here. Please understand that if you DO go and have a look, this is not a finished product yet!

Lexar, who had preiviously gone into receivership, has been acquired by Chinese flash storage company, Longsys.

Shutters Inc is now on the iHeartRadio app!

This week, I received an e-mail about a blog post on shooting product photography. Thought I’d share it, as it appears to be a fairly comprehensive piece.

Photographer finds locations of 1960s postcards to see how they look today, and the difference is unbelievable.

Man cops life ban for entering other photographer’s image under his name.

There’s a stunning 80-trillion-pixel cloudless view of earth.
The story | The map

Steve Peters told us about The rooftop photographer facing serious charges for climbing Ben Franklin bridge,
The news photographer shot by cop who mistook camera and tripod for gun,
and this story about cameras and lenses that got destroyed by the solar eclipse.

Adam tells us the Lily drone is back… kind of.

And David shared this story of the NOAA aircraft flying through the eye of Hurricane Irma.

Hang in there…

Filed under: Blog — Bruce Williams @ 16:08

Episode 384 is recorded and mixed, but I’m away from home this weekend.

As such, the podcast will be a little late hitting the feed this week.

I don’t imagine it being more than about 4-6 hours later than usual. Just wanted to give everyone the heads up.

Episode 383 – The Adam Davidson episode

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

This week, we’re dedicating the episode to the highest-paid member of the Shutters Inc team, Mr Adam Davidson for his years of dedication to the fine art of “copy and paste”!
I did my shoot with Tammy, which Glynn had much fun in pulling apart.

F-stoppers had this great little piece of satire on the future predictions about photography.
Remember the “monkey selfie”? Turns out, the photographer who owned the camera is “near bankruptcy” (on the podcast, I may have inadvertently said that he HAD declared bankruptcy) after it was deemed that HE is not the image creator. Tough call.
Watch lightning strike a wooden deck, just feet away from the guy who was filming the storm!
And petapixel had this to say about why you don’t need that new camera.

Steve Peters told us about the Brisbane open house weekend, which will be happening 7/8 October 2017.

Adam sent us the story about the cricket reporter holding up his iphone calculator app in lieu of a ‘light meter’,
this story about how digital photography is not free,
and a shout out to a new program airing on ABC Radio National (from September 1, 2017) called “Shooting the past”.

Glynn is pretty excited about Canon’s 3 tilt shift macro lenses,
and their new drink coasters, too!
In an awe-inspiring example of “brand consistency”, Leica has not modified their logo by even one little bit in over 100 years!
There’s the guy who made an iPhone light modifier out of a Big Mac box (problem-solving ftw!)
And this story on colour-grading your images.
