This week, how to find models without agents.
Bruce is planning on doing a shoot soon with a model from Ozmodel.

Test shot with the 135mm f2.8 lens
Bruce has got his new lens.
This is a shot ripped off quickly in the back yard before school, on the morning of recording Shutters Inc!
Nothing brilliant, I know, but gimme some time with it.We’ll get there.

Shelton answers a listener e-mail about how to best photograph people who are a little on the heavy side,
plus he also talks about ‘framing’ our composition.

Also, not mentioned on the podcast, but definitely worth sharing, are these panning shots from Andrew Sanigorski:

Recently you guys were talking about blurs and panning the camera to renders moving subjects stationary and I thought I’d share some of the work I’ve done with you and your listeners/readers which is a bit different as they don’t have a central sharp focus and are more concerned with the shapes and natural rhythms I’ve observed in the landscape.
The images (personal work) were exposed for between 1/5th to 3 seconds generally with small apertures to get the type of blurring i was after (of course I could have added an ND filter so wider apertures could be used). The images were pretty much adjusted using camera raw (Bridge) with some very minor PShop tweaking.

…plus these of Jason Kaechler’s crazy cats!
