    The Grid, Yo!

    We’ve been discussing sites, galleries and image portfolios behind the scenes for some time now and after I watched an older episode of The Grid a couple months ago, I’ve pretty much become obsessed trying to figure this out and driving Mac crazy in the process. Sure, there are no rules when it comes to sharing / displaying your images online, and no one is going to take your ass down, but as photographers, we definitely want to stay current and it’s terribly easy to get behind.

    We dive right in and start dissecting online portfolios vs. print portfolios vs. online galleries, etc. Please join us and have a listen!

    Thanks to The Grid for stirring it up and giving us something to think about.

    Bits ‘n Bites

    What is your take on portfolios vs. galleries? Do you see a difference in them and better yet, which do you have on your site? Please chime in as we’re dead curious to learn what other photographers are up to.

    You can find us over at Facebook these days, as well as hanging near Twitter and Google Plus. Don’t forget you can subscribe for free via iTunes!  If you have the Stitcher App, you can also find us there!

    Thanks as always for tuning in, folks! We really appreciate it!

    Cheers, y’all!

  2. Episode 8 ~ HDR Photography

    The Madness of QA/QC

    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?

    As always, thanks for tuning in!

    Cheers, y’all!
