You know him. You love him. Perhaps you’ve been instructed by him. Our brother from another mother, 50% of the brilliant photography podcast, Street Shots, our homie and partner-in-crime, Antonio ‘Switch 2 Manual’ Rosario joins us once again for another chat.

Photokina 2016

Sadly, we were not there (now that would be cool), however we decided to join heads and chat about some of the Photokina announcements which piqued our interest the most. Fuji may or may not make an appearance in the discussion. Please join us as we have gear chat and more!

Join the Convo

Photokina has now wrapped up – what have been your highlights from the announcements? Any gear that has you dreaming of an upgrade? What are your thoughts on the medium format system from Fuji? Is this something you’re interested in? We’d love to hear your thoughts! Please chime in on our blog, Twitter and Bookface. As always, you can subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher!

Episode 143 »» Is the iPhone 7 Plus A Photography Game Changer?

iPhone 7 Plus  <enter clever words here>

This title almost feels like clickbait since it’s a topic we have never dedicated an entire show to, but when something in the photo world catches the eye of a co-host, we take to the mics to figure it out. An article from the New Yorker and post on Bookface about the fear camera companies should be feeling led to this episode. Please join us as we tackle the buzz of a lovely piece of technology and ask ourselves what exactly would be a game changer in the photography industry today.

What are your thoughts on the dual lenses on the 7 Plus? Is this a game changer? Did you pre-order the beast? Jet black, right? We’d love to hear your thoughts on what you think would be a game changer in the photo world. You can find us at Facebook and Twitter to keep the conversation flowing!

Logo…Watermark…Genius.

The folks behind Photologo came up with a genius business plan. Instead of using logos on your photos, how about a manufactured signature? Looks cool, professional – but is it worth the price?

C is for Cookie

New body, cool updates and uh, older technology? You betcha. Oops, Canon did it again. The highly anticipated Canon 5D Mark IV has been announced and while it has left some folks singing their praises, there are just as many photographers who are left feeling … underwhelmed.

F is for Fooey

Fuji gave us another 23mm lens … this time it’s ƒ2 and looks like their original 35mm ƒ1.4. Hmmmm. Why you’re asking? Yeah, we don’t know either.

The Gloves Are Off

Nothing says the joy of podcasting like tying the knickers of your co-host up in a knot. An article about studying photography and how it’s a huge waste of time had Mac sitting in front of his microphone waiting for me to join in. Who knew this would lead to debating workshops and training and more.

Do you have formal education in photography or are you a student of the school of life, learning as you go? How important is it to have knowledge of the history of photography? What about mentoring?

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!

Join the Convo

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!
