This week, Skype issues led to us having to record wth Glynn on his mobile phone.
Glynn is VERY happy with his Mosaic photobook, and would order more of them if it weren’t for the horrendous cost of international shipping (the boon of the Australian consumer!).
During the week, I saw a funny thread on the Light Stalking page on Facebook regarding what should be the appropriate collective noun for photographers,
Following on from last week’s soft launch, we have continued the idea of having questions posed to us via the Shutters Inc Facebook page while we’re actually recording.
This week, we had 3 questions from Richard Ingram, concerning quoting for commercial jobs, quoting for wedding work, and the conundrum of choosing a business name.
Keen to hear your thoughts on this method of Q+A. Is it worth pursuing, or does the 6 day turnaround kill its usefullness (given that we record on Tuesday night and the podcast goes live on Sunday)?
This week saw the announcing of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize winners, with the category of “Feature photography” going to a Javier Manzano image of two Syrian soldiers.
Glynn thought some of the categories for the prizes demanded a “Witty Photography Category” competition. Give us your suggestions!
We ponder the quesiton of why DSLR’s can’t give us shutter speeds slower than 30 seconds? How hard could it be to have options for 1min, 2min, 4min, 8min and so forth right out to an hour?
And finally, the growing move toward brides and grooms asking for a social media blackout on their wedding day. Glynn and I are in agreement on this… we think it’s a great idea!
And btw, has anyone else noticed the weirdness currently going on with Facebook’s displaying of comments?
Look at the following image, and check out the time stamps. The time stamps are actually representative of the times each comment was made, but what is with the ORDER???? Looks like Neo broke the Matrix again!
