Batman Rises Once Again
— Sid and Mac (@ShuttertimeShow) March 7, 2018
Canon U.S.A. is a recipient of the prestigious Public Alliance Corporate Stewardship award for their partnership and support of Yellowstone Forever and their commitment to wildlife conservation.
So, Who’s in Control Here?
With the news VCG now has full ownership of 500px, the rise and fall of Vero, the regular shenanigans at Instagram and more, we started to wonder once again – who is in control with our photography? It would appear to some there are even ‘rules’ in place when it comes socializing our individual photography experience, so we took to the mics to discuss taking back control. Please join us as we are joined by our great pal, Usually Happy Dave, to discuss curating our photography online and more.
Join the Convo:
We would love to hear if you support brands who demonstrate corporate stewardship and responsibility and who these brands are (let’s give them props!). How do you feel about socializing and curating your photography work and experience online? You can chime in and find us on Twitter and Bookface. You can also subscribe to the show for free via iTunes or Stitcher. If you would like to support the show and help with some of the costs of running this podcast, please check us out on Patreon (any support is appreciated!).
Huge thanks to our Usually Happy Dave for answering the bat signal and joining us for another great discussion. Make sure you check out his photography work and the fantastic redesign of his site, as well as his weekly crazy-fun tech podcast, digitalSoup!
Thanks so much as always for tuning in, friends!

Shutter Time Goodness:
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.
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!
Thanks as always for tuning in!

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.
Join the Convo
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? Are you interested in the new Canon body? We would love to hear your thoughts! You can find us at Facebook and Twitter to keep the conversation flowing! As always, you can subscribe for free via iTunes or check us out via the Stitcher app!
Thanks as always for tuning in, folks!

So today episode was recorded with my lovely wife, because Sid was abducted by aliens. Hopefully Sid will be back on the next exciting episode of Shutter Time.
Canon and Zeiss sitting in a tree…
First Canon rumors a 120MP DSLR camera, and we wonder why.
Also Zeiss created a list of Milvus line of lenses for both Canon and Nikon. They look nice, but are all professional grade. According to Zeiss the manual focus is an actual feature!
Forging our new paths
Reading the article written by Olivier Du Tre we jumped into long lasting discussion. The article questions our need for assurance that we are doing something right. This touches on our need for Social Media, and contact with other photographers. This made us think about purging social media accounts. Also this leads to being extremely selfish on the internet, with out giving voice to other photographers that we may deem worthy of our voice. Should we share their work when we come across something that we really like? How many of us actually do that, and not because of we expect something in return?
Switch to Manual Portfolio Reviews
This is great news coming from our friends at Switch to Manual. It’s a portfolio review. Here is a direct quote from their site:
“We offer several different review packages to choose from, including a free option. You choose the package that’s right for you, digitally “drop off” your portfolio with us, and we’ll personally review it.
We will make an audio recording of the full review and send a downloadable mp3 audio file back to you. You’ll hear us go over each image you send, letting you know what you did right and what didn’t work out so well. We’ll offer tips to improve the image as well as any other advice we may come up with.”
These guys know what they are talking about, and I think it would be a great experience.
