Episode 12 ~ Watermarks, Yo!

Our New Crush

Here at Shutter Time, we’re always on the lookout for photography goodness that can curl our toes, or at the very least, spark enough interest so we can talk about it on the show. Who knew it would come in the form of a video this week, MWACattack!?!

Walking On Water

Okay, so we can’t walk on water, but what about marking with it? While the topic of watermarking your images is not as titillating as the ol’ Canon vs. Nikon debate, it’s still a topic that brings out the claws in some photographers. Have a listen as we discuss just this and more in episode 12!.

Bits n’ Bites

The holidays are almost here, with last minute shoppers scrambling in order to find the perfect gift. Have a listen to Episode 9 if you need some inspiration for surprising your favorite photographer in your world!

Thanks for tuning in, y’all!

Cheers!

Episode 11 ~ Ethically Speaking

Rules of Conduct

As we all know, ethics play a large part in not only our daily lives, but in photography as well. Mac wrangled up a panel of photography enthusiasts to discuss just this and more. Joining him is Jennifer Plant, a very promising amateur photographer, whose specialty is dog portraits. She is joined by her husband, Dustin Plant, who doesn’t really consider himself a photographer, but is well versed on the subject. Rounding out the crew is Kasia Sokulska, who just started out with photography herself and is starting to take the world of Flickr by storm.

Bits ‘n Bites

My thanks to Jennifer, Dustin and Kasia for pitching in and filling in for me this week! Y’all did a great job and we hope you visit us again on the show.

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you put your feelings aside and moved ahead with telling a story with your camera? Don’t be shy and tell us about it!

Thanks for tuning in, y’all!

Cheers

Episode 10 ~ Filtering Masochism

Filter This, Mac!

My cheeky co-host is continually referring to me as a photography masochist because I like to put time in the field. I’m sure some will laugh at me as I continue to grumble over the omission of a Lee Filter holder from my camera bag, but it’s a chance I’ll take until I can wrap my hands around a filter holder and a couple of grad filters, my precious.

Screw This!

Do you prefer the screw-in filters or are dropping and sliding your filters the way you roll? Which filters do you regularly use and which ones can you not live without? If you are kickin’ it new school and you get your filter fix in post, what’s your software of choice?

Thanks again for listening, y’all!

Cheers

Santa's Bag Of Gifts For Photographers - Shutter Time

Santa’s Got a Brand New Bag

Our 2011 holiday gift guide photographers will dig! It’s the time of year where photographers and photography related sites crank out their top holiday gift suggestions for the photographer in your world. We thought we’d join the ranks this year and just get ‘er done. We reached deep into our photographic souls and each came up with a list we think would make any photographer shiver with candy cane tingles.

Bits n’ Bites

With so many great photo gifts out there, we couldn’t cover them all. Do you have any suggestions to accompany our list? If you’re a photographer, what are you hoping the jolly ol’ bugger in red brings you Christmas morning?

Thanks for listening, y’all!

Cheers!

Episode 8 ~ HDR Photography

The Madness of QA/QC

Mac shares his recent bumpy experience when ordering from Blurb.

Fool Me Once 

Here I thought I could spot an HDR image a mile away. They all look the same, right? Tone-mapping gone wild, I’d say! Wrong! We discuss the pros and cons, and even surprises of HDR photography!

Bits ‘n Bites

O Canada! Printing labs are sparse and a dying breed in our country. If you know of a lab that meets the criteria of a photographer who may not have the volume of a working pro, please speak up! We’re always on the hunt for quality labs here in Canada, eh?

As always, thanks for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!
