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.

Join the Convo

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!

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.

F-F-Fuji. 

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!
