F is for Fuji

At times, you just need to chat about gear! Fujifilm has announced their latest body, the Fujifilm X-T100. It’s small, relatively inexpensive and isn’t part of their X-Trans sensor lineup, which should make some Lightroom users happy.

One Word. 

Intrigued by a short and simple article from Moose Peterson where he challenges us to think of the one word that may make or break an image, we took to the mics to discuss this in depth, focusing on the distractions in our visual communication. Please join us as we talk about the new Fuji camera, Moose’s article and more!

Still Inspired by Darkness?

Our follow-up to episode 193 is finally here. We had received a number of messages asking for further clarification about how someone can be inspired after viewing a photograph telling a story of tragedy and darkness. Please join us as we tackle this tricky subject!

Thanks to our listeners who chimed in and challenged us to revisit this subject. This is what the podcast is all about: to keep the conversation about all things photography going. Comments and questions = more discussion.

Huge thanks to those who sent a message and to our mystery caller *wink*. We hope this helps clear things up!

Inspired by Darkness?

We received a number of questions / messages and even a recording about our last episode, Episode 193 »» Pulitzer Prize Photographs with Antonio M. Rosario, asking for further explanation about finding inspiration in these often dark, award-winning images. While we do not discuss this any further in this episode, you can expect a proper follow-up in the upcoming week. Thank you so much for chiming in! Stay tuned!

Chocolate Elephants

Mac was intrigued by the clever way Vancouver photographer, Ian McDonald, penned an article about making sense of your photography. We thought Ian’s article complimented one of Olaf Sztaba’s recent articles, ConfidenceA Roller-Coaster to Seeing(Intro), which we discussed back on episode 182. Inspired by Ian’s words, we took to the mics to discuss his article, the wonderful videos by Ted Forbes on his The Art of Photography YouTube channel and more!

We would love to hear your thoughts on the show! How do you approach your photography while making sense of your art?

Thanks to Ian, Ted and Olaf for the inspiration for this episode (links below). Also, make sure y’all check out the work from Mark Reierson who gave Mac an unofficial workshop experience this past weekend. *wink*

To all our listeners: while we may not always agree on these photography topics and our opinions do vary, the respectful way you choose to engage with us and other photographers / listeners by continuing the conversation and creating a wonderful sense of community in the process, is one of the many reasons why we love doing this show, so thank you all.

Episode 193 »» Pulitzer Prize Photographs with Antonio M. Rosario

Winning Moments 

Every time he is back on Shutter Time, this is a winning moment for us. Of course, I am talking about our brother from another mother, the ridiculously cool photographer and podcaster hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Antonio M. Rosario.

Inspired by the incredible award-winning images in the latest version of the book, Moments: The Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photographs by Hal Buell, we decided to discuss what we could learn from these Pulitzer Prize photographs that have been a part of our history since the first award was handed out in 1942 and the photographers who made them. 

Disclaimer: we (mainly Sid) may have been pronouncing Pulitzer incorrectly as we have heard both versions. Before you refer to us as uncultured swine, perhaps just chime in and let us know which version is correct. Thanks!

Oops, We Did it Again.

Sidnado

With @supercellsid as my Twitter handle, it wasn’t too surprising I went nuts over this new series from our listener and good friend of the show, Laurie (@haveteacup). We will let her tell the full story on her blog, but she has been starting to discover her photo DNA and this journey has led her to an incredible treasure, wonderfully named, The Thelma Files. Make sure y’all check out her blog and Instagram for more goodness on this series about her grandmother, a photographer and storm enthusiast!

SmugMug + Flickr = True Love?

It is no secret to many that SmugMug has scooped up the often-neglected photography sharing site and community, Flickr. What exactly does this mean for Flickr members? Is this a match made in heaven or does it spell the end of the Flickr we once knew and loved? Please join us as we discuss Sidnados, SmugMug, voices in your photography and more (inspiration vs. appreciation, y’all!). You can also listen to our Mac have a great discussion about this new SmugMug + Flickr journey on the excellent podcast, Cybrcast, episode 091.
