Episode 141 »» Got G.A.S.?, gear chat, Shutter Time with Sid and Mac photography podcast

It’s GOLD, Jerry. GOLD. 

The Olympics are in full swing and amongst all the hype over medals, there is some killer photography coming out of the summer games. We touch on the surprising (to us) warped speed in how Getty gets these images out to the world.

Gear Chat

The Canon 5D Mark IV chatter is still ongoing and we chat about this camera as we lead into the chat about gear … how much do we need? An article from a local photographer had Mac thinking about gear … and naturally, he got me thinking about it and we thought we would take to the mics and discuss how much gear do you really need. How can you be cured of G.A.S., and do you really want to find a cure? Can gear get in the way of our photography and vision? Please join us as we tackle gear chat once again!

Rambling On

Ah, after a week of delays: injuries, home renos and Uncle Murphy, we are back with episode 140! We kept this puppy short and discuss a few topics fresh on our mind.

Switch to Manual…..Mirrorless

Our cousins down south had an amusing chat about the possibility of switching to mirrorless. Ah, we enjoyed listening to other podcasters have a good lighthearted debate! If you haven’t checked out their podcast, Street Shots, it’s most definitely worth listening to and subscribing!

F is for Failure

This is your photo shoot – you’re on your own time and this shoot is about feeding your photographic soul. Or so your hope. You have your vision, gear, accessories and everything you need for a successful shoot has been checked off the list, but the shoot doesn’t go as planned. Did you fail? Landscape photographer, Thomas Heaton, created a brilliant short film, There’s More to Landscape Photography. Many viewers have their own take on his message, but we came out of it with a strong message about passion and it made us think about how we perceive failure in photography. This film is a must see!

Episode 139 Follow-up

We quickly catch up to the last episode as we look at an example of work which might not be the reality we think it is at first glance. Thanks for the link, Antonio! We highly suggest you check out Jean Miele’s beautiful work!

Do you have the new Sony mirrorless and have you had any issues with it as Mac discussed? What kind of support have you received from Sony? Have you made the switch to mirrorless or at least added such a body to your arsenal of gear? Was it the right move for you and do you have any suggestions for our cousin, Tom, from Street Shots? Maybe head on over to their site and offer some suggestions. What about failure in photography? What is your take on this and how do you feel about your shoots which do not work out as planned? Please chime in as we’d love to hear your thoughts! You can find us Bookface and Twitter! You can also subscribe free via iTunes and Stitcher.

Huge shout out for the interaction and comments and notes – it’s so appreciated!  We are starting to catch up with our replies. Thanks as always for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!

Coming Home

Nope, it’s not some emotional photography story that will tear at your heartstrings. Rather, Mac just realized the right inventory management/post processor was in right front of him all along. Cya later, Capture One.


The long anticipated Fujifilm X-T2 was announced and though it’s not even available in stores yet, photographers are jumping at it. Does it have what it takes to be Fuji’s best mirrorless body yet? We quickly dish about the latest body to hit the scene and quite possibly, your wallet.

Composite, You Say?

Mac listened to a podcast which got his camera straps all tied up in a knot and we thought we’d talk about composites and in the process, revisiting landscapes and dare we say it, wildlife? Join us as we discuss this topic and wonder what responsibility the photographer has to their viewing audience when it comes to our work.

Join the Convo

Is the Fuji X-T2 on your radar? If not, is there another brand and/or body you’ve been waiting to add to your lineup? Which one? What are your thoughts about composite photography, especially with landscapes and wildlife? Do you feel the photographer should be honest upfront with how the image was made/processed? We’d love to hear your thoughts! You can find us Bookface and Twitter! You can also subscribe free via iTunes and Stitcher.

Thanks as always for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!

Ouch, right?

Episode 138 »» Nobody Gives a Toss
Image by Antonio M. Rosario.

Ted Forbes from The Art of Photography stirred it up this past week with a YouTube video. He shared a conversation he had with a mate a couple years ago, who had felt there was no need for more photographers, nobody cares about his work, etc. Who knew this topic would create such a response. The sides are pretty much split down the middle, so of course Mac and I had to take to the mics to discuss this. We love a good head scratcher ourselves and invited our good pal and homie, Antonio from Switch to Manual, to join the chat. So many questions. Such as – do we need to only do good work with a purpose moving forward? Hmmm …

We also touch on the new Hasselblad camera, mobile storage and also serve up a huge plate of crow for Mac and I. *cough* Instagram. *cough* Please join us as we cover it all!

Thanks again to Antonio for coming on the show once again! We love having him on. Do yourselves a favour and check out his work! You won’t be disappointed.

Oh, and here is that Canada goose photo we talked about!

We would love to hear your thoughts on the show and these topics. Do you care about the photography of others? Does your work have a specific purpose and if not, does it need to be? Are you eying that Hassie? hehe You can find us on Bookface and Twitter as well as this site. You can also subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher!

Thanks for tuning in, y’all!

Lee. Filters. They’re Back?

We’ve talked about them in the past and seem to have a love/hate relationship with them. Could be the cost. Could be the lack of availability at times over the years. A wee search for the Little Stopper led us to a debate and well, here we are. Please join us as we filter through some topics (see what I did there?) for this show!

Olaf, Kasia and Mark

If you’re a fan of Fuji, fantastic landscape photographers or you know, incredible photography, Olaf has posted a blog full of gorgeous images from a highly coveted trip by landscape shooters to Palouse, WA. Definitely worth checking out! We also mention a couple books suggested by Mark as a follow-up to episode 136 by local photographer / master, George Webber! Cheers for the scoop, Mark!

Fuji and Mac

We have a few updates on the latest rumours swirling around. The X-T2 has been spotted in the wild and should be part of an announcement by the Fuji camp here shortly. Teleconverters cost a fortune. Mac has a new lens (lenses?). It’s just madness all around.

Curating Our Work

One of our listeners and great pal, Mark Rierson, has discussed on and off the show about the importance for curating / managing our work. He’s the inspiration behind our main topic as we chat about methods to do so, how important it is to back-up vs. printing, and essentially, who are we managing our online inventory for?
