Episode 151 »» Golden Ratio, My ArseHappy New Year!

Rules. Golden Ones.

A recent article about the golden ratio in photography had some photographers all riled up, ourselves included, so we thought we would take to the mics to discuss a few rules which seemed to be forced on us by some.  Do these rules even have any weight in today’s photography world and how important are these rules for telling your story?

Join the Convo

We’d love to hear your thoughts on rules of photography … do you practice these rules or do you subscribe to the ‘all rules are meant to be broken‘ way of life, or at least, photography? Do you have any plans for your photography in 2017? We’d love to hear about it! Please chime in here on ye ole blog, Bookface or Twitter. Of course you can subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher!

Thanks again for tuning in and chatting with us about all things photography!

Cheers, y’all!

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.

Join the Convo

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! As always, you can subscribe for free via iTunes or check us out via the Stitcher app!

Thanks as always for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!

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.

Join the Convo

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? Are you interested in the new Canon body? We would love to hear your thoughts! You can find us at Facebook and Twitter to keep the conversation flowing!

Can’t Stop Him

Our very good pal, Mark Reierson, agreed to come on over and join us for another good ol’ fashioned photography discussion. This marks his third appearance on the show and we already want him back for more. We catch up with Mark and learn what’s he has been up to before we dive in with our main chat.

Finding Your Way

As a continuation from episode 131, we scratch the surface of Mac’s lingering question of realizing your own vision for creating art and making images.  Please join us as we three souls discuss this and more!

Join the Convo

How do you feel about finding your vision when it comes to photography? Is the need for making images led by hunger, social interaction or something more? We’d love to hear your thoughts. You can find us Bookface and Twitter! You can also subscribe free via iTunes and Stitcher.

Thanks again, Mark, for the good chat! Please make sure to check out his work here. You can also find him at the Humans of Calgary Facebook page.

Thanks as always for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!
