Shutter Time with Sid and Mac photography podcast, Episode 112 »» Restricted Choices, yegphoto, yegcasts; Working pumpjack in rural Alberta during a mid-winter sunrise. Sidney Blake Photography. No. 1784.

It’s Fuji Time

Firmware 4.0 has been released for the Fujifilm X-T1 / Graphite X-T1 and Mac gives us a rundown of the updates and how it’s improved the camera.

Self Imposed Restrictions and Choices

It’s super easy to continue along with our photography without truly being aware of the choices we make with all aspects of our craft. What’s often easier to slip by us are the restrictions we impose on ourself – often without realizing it. A quick article and a couple of chats with some listeners inspired us to take extend the convo by hitting up our mics. Please have a listen and see if you recognize yourself in the chat and what we as photographers can do to make sure we are doing right by ourselves and ultimately, our photography. I may or may not feel exposed after this one … doh!

The F Word

There are moments where Fuji chat has its place and episode 109 is one of them. Given our recent fanboy episode, we are well aware it’s probably insane to talk about a particular brand, but here we are. We are a fan of brands who keep the photo faith by listening to their customers and right now, for the most part, Fuji is fitting the bill. But lately so is Canon to some degree and perhaps we shall chat about them and other brands in our next gear-themed show.

Updated!

More updates / releases have come out of the Fuji camp, so please join us as we talk about the latest firmware and some fresh gear!

X Mount Lens Roadmap 

There are two roadmaps floating around right now. The official roadmap as found on the Fujifilm sites, updated February 2015 and then the latest to be posted by several websites, including Fuji Rumors. Below is the official one. We’ll post the updated May / June 2015 roadmap once it’s available on Fuji’s site.

600mm, You Say?

Mac, being the fan of third party lenses that is he, scored a funky used lens to take his photography to new lengths, so to speak. He shares with us his newest acquisition. Stay tuned for a lens review from him down the road on his blog / our Bookface.

Magic. 

If you’ve felt that something special as you’re feeling the click of the shutter or the watching your vision unfolding in front of you, it’s undeniable how powerful the magic of photography is. What happens though when the magic fades? If you have a camera in your hands, does this automatically make you a soul photographer vs. one of convenience and at the end of the day, does it really matter? We’ve been trying to get to the why and feel of photography of late, so we decided to hit up our mics and figure this one out.

We’d love to hear from you! How do you define the magic of photography? Do you think about the why and the feel of photography / magic, or do you just roll with it? If the magic fades, how do you get it back? Please chime in! Besides this blog, you can find us on Bookface, (Mac), Twitter and Google Plus. Don’t forget to subscribe if you haven’t already for free via iTunes. You can also catch up via the Stitcher App!

Thanks as always for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!

Episode 106 »» When Movies Meet Photography

Shutter Time Flashback

2 years ago, one of our listeners and good friends, Scott Hutchison, joined us for a good ol’ fashioned film chat on episode 52. Mac and Scott were at opposing ends at the time when it came down to the status of film in the industry vs. digital – totally worth a listen to, btw. This time Scott came up with a different show idea and we ran with it!

The Cinema

There are many sources photographers look to for inspiration. One of the inspirations can be motion pictures, though at times we may not realize it. Once Scott came up with this idea, we sat back and came with a list of films and how they have inspired us to pick up a camera. Some of the films may surprise you. No judgement, ok, haha? Please join as we go through our lists and see if you agree!

Are there any movies which inspire you creatively? If so, which ones and how so? Please chime in over at Bookface and Twitter or here at the blog! Don’t forget you can subscribe for free via iTunes!

Don’t forget to drop by Bookface and send Mac some extra love! :)

Thanks as always for tuning in, folks.

Cheers, y’all!
