Mac shares his recent bumpy experience when ordering from Blurb.
Fool Me Once
Here I thought I could spot an HDR image a mile away. They all look the same, right? Tone-mapping gone wild, I’d say! Wrong! We discuss the pros and cons, and even surprises of HDR photography!

O Canada! Printing labs are sparse and a dying breed in our country. If you know of a lab that meets the criteria of a photographer who may not have the volume of a working pro, please speak up! We’re always on the hunt for quality labs here in Canada, eh?
He updates us on his Snapseed app (from Nik) woes!
When Worlds Collide
The fine line where the old school, real world of photographers and the growing trend of famed Internet photographers was drawn is becoming blurred of late with the increasing numbers of Google + photographers taking the world of photography by storm. What’s all the fuss about? With the colliding worlds of photographers, we are also seeing another trend evolving – online bullying in photography. Is this really acceptable in our photography community? We chew over just this and more!

Techie woes: Skype has been challenging us the past few episodes, so please bear with us during some of the audio blips here and there. We’re on a mission to come up with a resolution!
Thanks again for the feedback. We appreciate it and we’re thrilled you keep tuning in for more.
We thought we’d shake things up a little bit here at Shutter Time and add Mo Bro Alberta photographer, Randy Pond, to the team. But just for tonight, as we don’t think we could afford to buck up (read: pay the bribe!) every week! It was an honor and a blast to have Randy on the show as our first official guest. Check out Randy’s Movember campaign as he raises money this month is support of men’s health. A most definitely worthy cause and yet another great reason to see men rock the ‘stache!
Food for Thought
Episode 5 garnered some feedback, most of it being away from the blog. One of our listeners left us a comment and asked us a great question. Thanks for the feedback, Michael! Have a listen to hear what we’re talking about!
With the undeniable explosion of social media these past couple years infiltrating the world of photography, it can be somewhat overwhelming. We’d love to hear your take on social media in photography, from either a photographer’s POV or maybe you’re a SM pro and can offer any tips or advice for photographers to maximize the potential social media can bring us!

Thanks again to Randy, who not only entertained us throughout the discussion, but left us with the best sign-off to date! You’ll have to listen to the show to hear it … it’s worth it, I promise. Star Trek fans would approve!
Stay tuned to Twitter to see what we’re going to chat about next!
Mac, being the ever so dedicated photographer, decided to add his iPad 2 to his workflow, but ran into some obstacles along the way when it came to a photo editing app, Snapseed. Have a listen to his troubles and if you can offer some insight or a solution, please leave a comment below!
Workshops, Tours, Seminars, Oh My!
What the hell is the difference between a photography workshop, photo tour or seminar, you ask? Good bloody question. Since there are no clear definitions, we took some of what the photographers who offer such services define them to be and then came up with our own conclusion. Have a listen, as we break them down as best we can and offer some suggestions on helping choose what’s right for you.
If you have attended a workshop (online or in person), photo tour or expedition, seminar or have taken an actual photography course, why not tell us about it? We’d love to hear the opinions of others.

Christa Meola: Mac’s ahuge fan. ‘Nuff said. You might just have stumbled upon Mac’s little secret …
Hi everyone! Thanks so much for listening to our first podcast, Episode 1 – Introductions. Like Mac had mentioned, it’s a little rough around the edges, but we strive to improve with every show and we hope you keep tuning in for more.
Are your images on the internet for all to see? How do you feel about someone critiquing your images? Do you prefer a drive by, “lovely shot!”, or are you more part of the ever fading constructive criticism crowd? We discuss just this and more in episode #2!
What Is Critique?
Critique is a method of disciplined, systematic analysis of a written or oral discourse. Critique is commonly understood as fault finding and negative judgment, but it can also involve merit recognition, and in the philosophical tradition it also means a methodical practice of doubt.
What are some of the most helpful critiques you have received on a photo? Have you received negative feedback? How did you handle it? Feel free to tell us in comments below. Be sure to link us your sites / blog / Flickr streams and if possible, the image itself! You know we want to take a peek! If you have anything else to say, here is the place to do it as well!
