Shutters Inc – episode 207

This week, why the long break between episodes,
plus some more discussion of ND1000 (10 stop) filters (with some contributions from Andrew Cooper, Daryl Gungadoo and Adam Davidson). Turns out that almost all 10 stop filters will introduce some kind of colour shift… some shift towards the red end of the spectrum and some shift toward the blue end of the spectrum.
Daryl also chimed in on the focus points of the Nikon D700 and D800 bodies, plus casually mentioned the fact that he has just finished shooting the London 2012 Olympics (freelancing to Associated Press). We definitely want to hear more about that!

After taking a break from the Pose Project Management shoots for 3-4 weeks, I knocked over not just one, but two of them last weekend.
One was a vampire-themed shoot, and through the week, I happened to show the SOOC images to one of the Program Directors at ARN Sydney. He loved what he saw, and asked me to put together a proposal and quote to do a shoot with the breakfast team for one of our Sydney radio stations. Pretty excited about that! I’ve pitched the concept, they love it, and now I’m in need of a good “run down industrial” location along the lines of the old Dunlop Factory in Alexandria, or the old tram sheds at Harold Park. Trouble is, both of those locations are now closed, so if anyone knows something similar in Sydney, please let me know!

Shutters Inc – episode 190

This week, a quick chat about why I have decided to NOT shoot with auto white balance from here on out.
All of which leads perfectly into our interview with this week’s special guest, Les Walkling.
Les is Australia’s most highly respected authority on colour managed workflow.
Check out the Theory of Practise page on Les’ site for those pdf files he mentioned.
Also, some listener email from Neil regarding hot pixels, and this link to the camera simulator from Ron,
plus an inspirational quote from Ira Glass.
And keep those emails coming in!

Shutters Inc – episode 148

With Shelton and Glynn still in LA for the PMA Trade Show, I figured it was the perfect opportunity to grab Dave Honl for another chat.
Dave and I talked about colour temperatures and white balance and all that juicy stuff,
which prompted Dave to talk about this shoot he did a while back,
plus he mentioned the possibility of him heading Down Under to do some workshops!!
Block out the whole month of October right now!

Shutters Inc – episode 120

Filed under: CX1,Podcast,Ricoh,Shutters Inc,White balance,workflow — Bruce Williams @ 12:29

This week, Shelton is playing with the new Ricoh CX1,
plus we talk about white balance,
Daryl Gungadoo’s workflow,
and the dude at Paxton’s at North Ryde who deserves an award for telling the truth!
Unlike the clown I ran into yesterday (long after this podcast was recorded, unfortunately) at Clive Anthony’s in Castle Hill, who had absolutely NFI when it came to photography, but was quite happy to stand there and make up crap and sprout it as gospel to every unsuspecting potential camera buyer who walked his way.
Shame shame shame.
How is it that you can strike such polar opposites all within one 7 day period?

In ep 82, Bruce apologises again for the debacle this week over the”panning photos” (see the blog entries if you’re not sure what happened).

Shelton talks about white balance and flash diffusers.
