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?

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!
He answered the bat signal and came back for another Shutter Time chat. Though this time I think our pal, Dave “Batman” Szweduik, got a little more than he bargained for when he suddenly found himself as a referee in the ring!
In This Corner
It’s been a while since the gloves came off, and the topic of photography projects vs. assignments somehow sparked a spicy debate between us. Thankfully we had a voice a reason in the room, our good mate, Dave. Please join us as we take to the mics to figure out the difference and importance between the two.

Do you feel there is a difference between photography projects and assignments or do you find it just doesn’t matter? Have you been involved in any assignments or projects and if so, did you find one to be more beneficial over the other? You can find us on Twitter and Bookface and of course, you can subscribe for free on iTunes and Stitcher!
Thanks again to Dave for filling in at the last moment and doing his best to keep the Shutter Time peace, haha. Please make sure to check out his work and watch his vlogs.

For those wondering who the dead sexy, tequila soaked photographer from our last show really is, he is none other than our good pal, Scott Hutchison. We thank Scott for the crazy idea and for the bloody good time, before, during and after the show. Scott has been on our show before, so please check out his work and maybe give the old shows a listen!
Blogs, Instagram and Vlogs, Oh My!
Another good mate of the show (and previous guest), Michael Van der Tol, had another show idea for us, so we ran with it. This topic suggestion keeps us in the current decade, but does allow us to wander back in time a wee bit: the demise of the photo blog and the rise of Instagram. Is this such a thing? We decided to also throw photo vlogs in the mix. Please join us as we tackle this subject!

What do you think about the demise of blogs? Is this such a thing? If you’re a photo blogger, have you ditched your blog for Instagram, Twitter or perhaps even vlogging? If you have some bloggers, Instagrammers and/or vloggers we need to follow, please chime in an share the wealth! As always, you can find us on Twitter and Bookface and of course, you can subscribe for free on iTunes and Stitcher!
Thanks again to our good mates, Scott and Michael, for the show suggestions. Thanks also to our listeners who have been chatting up a storm with us, including Dave, David, Jean-Françoise, Mark and more!
In some response to feedback from our wonderful listeners, we decided to briefly address the use of the F word here on Shutter Time. You know we appreciate the feedback, y’all, so thank you!
Nah, Not the Book
It’s not the book, The Photographer’s Eye, that we are thinking of, but rather something Mac came across whilst on Bookface which grabbed his attention. As photographers who are passionate about our craft, is having an eye for photography essential? What exactly does having an eye for photography mean to you? How do you think it’s validated? Please join us as we take to the mics to figure this one out!
