Episode 163: Film Chat with Dominic Chiuchiolo

After more than a year, we got in touch with an old Friend from New York, to see how the photographic world has changed.
Changes have been pretty substantial, as Dominic start shooting film in a serious way.
Now he develops b&w, color, and slide film.

The journey is getting more interesting as well.

So have you though of getting into film? Have you though about developing yourself?
We would love to hear from you!

Episode 162: Renee Robyn

Sid unfortunately is missing in action, so I turned on the Bat Signal and it was answered by our great friend Usually Dave from Digitalsoup podcast!

In this episode we had a great honor to chat with Renee Robyn.  She’s a digital artist, photographer, and avid traveler.  We talked about her inspiration for her projects, challenges, and what makes, this amazing artist tick.

Gloves Are Off

Who knew something as simple as inventory management/post-processing software could cause such a ripple through the Shutter Time airwaves, though I suppose that’s just how things roll at times.

Google announced they will no longer be updating their Nik software collection and many photographers are none too happy with this move, even though it was long expected. One of our listeners chimed in suggesting an Adobe rant and gave his own rant about Lightroom (thanks, JF) and because it’s something on my mind, we took to the mics to sort it out. The gloves came off several times, but even with all the eye-rolling, grunts and awkward silence, the bickering is always in good fun! Pinky swear. Please join us as we discuss Adobe Lightroom and some alternatives available today. Also, we are sorry about your ears. Just a fair warning.

Note: for the record, I COMPLETELY agreed with Mac after we stopped recording about the competition segment at the end of the show, and we kept the conversation flowing for another hour or so. He was right – I can admit it, as painful as it might be. But just about that one part, ha.

Are you currently using Adobe CC and if so, is it working for you? Does your post work involve alternatives to Adobe and if so, what are they? Please share the wealth! Is there anything else in the industry that is getting your goat and riling you up? We would love to hear about it because as we said at the end of the show, it’s up to us photographers/users/customers to make the change, bit by bit. You can keep the conversation going by chiming in on Bookface, Twitter or by leaving a comment on the blog! Of course you can subscribe for free via iTunes or Stitcher!

Thanks to our listeners for the suggestions and Adobe rants and thanks as always for tuning in, folks!

Our Bad. 

Well, really – it’s my bad. Episode 160, rounds 1, 2, 3 and 4 were recorded, however due to technical issues, I pretty much chucked the episode (ah, my solo Shutter Time debut), which was finished and cut, because I was ridiculously irritated with the tech woes. So, blame me for not having a show for a month. But mostly, blame Uncle Murphy. Cool?

Episode 160, Round 5 » The Chaps Are Back.

Thankfully Mac, who is well on his way to recovery, was ready to roll and record our latest episode. We decided to throw out the bat signal to see if Usually Dave would be up for joining me in welcoming Mac back. Like the superhero he is, the signal was answered. Besides, the topic idea was all from Dave, so it only made sense, right? Thumbprints – when making images, what exactly is your thumbprint? Not to be confused with your legacy or your footprint, but rather what drives your images to be the way that they are? A specific style, pre-and in post? Feeling? Or more? We take to the mics to figure this one out.
