Shutters Inc – episode 201

A couple of weeks ago, I saw this post and it got me thinking about why I (we?) hang on to every image we take. Perhaps as the title suggests, we should ‘keep the best, delete the rest’.

Blake Bodycote asked about backup solutions for his laptop-based Lightroom catalogue.
My suggestions included:

Backup online using any one of a multitude of free ‘drive’ sites like:

Use a paid online backup service like:

And if nothing else, maybe save jpeg copies to an online site?

I mention the absolutely crap-o-matic quality of film scanning at Big W,

plus, spending a day at a Joe McNally workshop.

Shutters Inc – episode 199

Filed under: 700si,film,Minolta,model release form,Podcast,Shutters Inc,Sydney meetup — Bruce Williams @ 12:00

This week, an apology for my ‘facebook fail’.
The reason there’s been no podcast for the last 3 weeks is because I was once again involved in photographing and videoing Sound Business Plan for ARN up at Hayman Island.
Sounds cushy, I know, but it was intense work.
The nest Sydney Meetup (#23 – Black Friday) will have already happened by the time you read this. We’re shooting a ‘European gypsy/fortune teller’-themed shoot.
And just because I don’t cram enough stuff (and stress) into my life, I’ve been out and bought a roll of 200iso Kodak film and a battery for my old Minolta 700si. At this meetup, I will be (or ‘was’?) shooting digital AND film simultaneously. Can’t wait to see if the difference is as noticable as everyone suggests.
Carl Hemmings sent me a link to a Peter Hurley video, where he discusses posing techniques, specifically for the head. I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS VIDEO ENOUGH! Allocate 15mins of your day and watch this (if, like me, you need help with posing your subjects). Awesome tips.
Adobe Reader 10.2 for Android and iOS is out now and allows for text markup and signing of pdf’s directly on your tablet/phablet/phone. Very excited about this. Custom digital model release forms, here we come!
Also, I’m hoping to get hold of Shelton for ep #200. Watch this space.
And speaking of Shelton, he and Glynn have just passed the 20,000 fans/friends mark on Facebook for Creative Photo Workshops! Well done, fellas!
