Shutters Inc – episode 164

This week, I’m joined by long time SI listener, and multi-published author, Mike Hollman.

Mike offered to call me on skype to discuss my tourism shoot next week, as he has done quite a few gigs along these lines.
Rather than just keep all that info for myself, I asked if Mike would mind if we made it an episode of the podcast, as I felt there might be some good info there for other photographers.

Also mentioned in this episode, the Photographer’s Ephemeris.

Check out some of Mike’s stunning landscape work at mikehollman.com

With Shelton still in South Africa covering the World Cup, and with Adobe having just released Lightroom 3 out into the wild, I thought it might be a good time to get Philip Andrews back on the line for a chat.

OK, so you want to know how you could win the Wacom Intuos 4 graphics tablet, huh?

Grab yourself this image (9MB, RAW) (36MB, TIF) and retouch it to the best of your ability.
A couple of rules:
a) You must only use your mouse. If you currently own a tablet, you must not use it for this competition. We’re relying on your honesty in this respect.
b) No cropping. Retouch only.

Once you’ve retouched it, resize it to 500 pixels WIDE, and resample to 72 dpi.
Once you’ve done that, send it here.
Shelton and Bruce will judge the entries received.
Deadline to submit an entry is midday (AEST) Monday 19th April, 2010.
Winner will be announced in the next podcast produced after 19th April.
Good luck!
