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!

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.

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?

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!

Moose!

If you’re a fan of Moose Peterson, you’ll want to check out his latest stop at The Grid. It’s 90 minutes of talking photography mixed with some laughter and inspiration, as well as a few business tips!

Douchebaggery Reversed 

Last week we talked about douchebag behaviour at Yellowstone. This week we mention an Fstoppers article and videos which show how Yellowstone should be done!

Viewing Photography As Art?

Another head-scratcher for you. Mac and I have been discussing the act of viewing photography as art … online and in person. With so many photos being posted at warped speed with every blink of the eyes, those lines of seeing photography as art vs. work from fellow photographers are becoming more blurred … at least they are for me. In order to stop me harassing him, Mac and I took to the mics to figure this one out. Do Mac and I end up on the same page – finally? Hmmm … please join us for this chat and find out!

Join the Convo

We’d love to hear your thoughts about the show. How do you feel about viewing photography as art? Are you able to do and enjoy the experience or do you alway look at photography mainly as a photographer? Please chime in! You can find us at Facebook and Twitter to keep the conversation flowing!

Thanks as always for tuning in and the continued interaction! It’s always much appreciated.
