Shutters Inc – episode 202

This week, I caught up with Lorna Andrikopoulos from Instinctive Desires, just after the Digital Show and AIPP Awards (aka PMA) was held in Melbourne.
We chatted about the state of the industry, and the changing world of marketing.

Then, I had a chat with Taleah Baird, who has set up a page on Facebook called Pose Project Management, the aim of which is to bring together photographers, models, make up artists and stylists to work collaboratively on visual projects. It’s a great concept, and one which appears to be taking off really well for her.

After this episode was recorded, Adobe released the v4.1 update to Lightroom which now includes the ability to work with 32 bit HDR images.

Shutters Inc – episode 179

Filed under: PMA,Podcast,Shutters Inc,trade show — Bruce Williams @ 12:47

Another year, another PMA trade show!
Over the weekend, I attended the PMA trade show in Sydney and spoke with some of the vendors who were in attendance.
This year, I made a point of trying to talk with some vendors who were not in the mainstream; the types of vendors who might have not received the same level of attention as the big, bright flashy stands of the industry’s major players.

Shutters Inc – episode 149

This week, just a chat as we catch up with Shelton post-Los Angeles.
Turns out, the “creative photo workshop” is an idea whose time has come.
Shelton talks about all the aspects of the trip, including the Venice Beach shoot.
Last week, I was given an Intuos4 graphics tablet by the nice folks at Wacom here in Australia. I’d never used one before, but having now done some photo retouching with one, I don’t think I could go back to photo manipulation with a mouse ever again!
Oh, and it’s pronounced Wah-com, not Way-com!
Shelton is looking into some of the plugins from Nik Software, including Viveza.
And he’s changed his mind on camera straps, after having been given a Black Rapid R-Strap whilst in LA.
He also discovered Hoodman loupes while he was at PMA.

Shutters Inc – episode 141

We’re baaaack!
Finally (after the death of my soundcard last week and the subsequent purachase of a new card which is SUPPOSED to be the successor to the card I had, but which has LESS features… grrrrrr!), we managed to hook up this week to catch up on all that has happened in both our lives over the last 6 weeks.
Shelton talks about India, the 4 day workshop in Brisbane, and the Creative Photo Workshop world tour planned for 2010, including visiting Los Angeles for the PMA trade show in February.
Also, Bruce’s photography career is slowly ramping up.
Info on the Bruce Williams Photography 2010 calendars, and the 5MP/Shutters Inc New Year party.
And no, I still haven’t forgotten about the HonlPhoto giveaway. In fact, this is discussed in the podcast. It may have to wait until the new year…. but it WILL happen!

Shutters Inc – the state of play

Filed under: PMA,Shutters Inc,trade show — Bruce Williams @ 12:00

Hi there all you SI listeners,
I expected to have another episode to release this week, with Shelton, and talking about all those things we hinted at, at the end of ep 128.
However, with PMA coming up next weekend, Shelton is like a hamster on a treadmill at the moment.
So, alas, there will be no normal episode of SI this week.
Apologies for that.
However, as well as the pre-PMA teaser episode (#129) released a couple of days ago, I am also planning on taking a hand-held flash recorder to the show on Friday and recording some interviews with some of the vendors. Those interviews will then be chopped up into another special PMA episode.
Plus, we’re planning something else a little bit different for next week, as well.
So, the short version of the story (now that you’ve already read the long version!) is, it may be another couple of weeks before we get around to wrapping up the “going pro” series.
But that doesn’t mean you won’t have SOMETHING to listen to in the mean time.
Woot!
