Episode 84 »» Photography Backlog

We discuss a number of topics in episode 84, such as traveling light w/ your gear, photography backlog, as well as answering a couple of Twitter questions! Batshite Crazy Sale in Zeissland

We talk about a crazy sale going on with Zeiss Touit E and X mount lenses (12mm and 32mm), but the pages for the sale at The Camera Store have been taken down and instead of August, it looks like it ended June 6th, 2014. Boo. Sorry, folks – we don’t know what the issue was, but at the time of this post, prices are back to normal. It looks like the sale might still be on at B&H. Shop at your own risk, ha! Hopefully if you were in the market, you were able to snag a lens or two at the killer price.

We answer a couple of Twitter questions on processing and gear choices. Huge thanks to the two Davids for the tweets / DMs. Hopefully we’ve answered your questions!

Traveling Light

Mac updates us on his travel adventures with his mirrorless system! Who are we kidding? We know it’s Fuji, riiiight!

Challenge Overkill?

An article from one of the greatest Canadian landscape photographers, Darwin Wiggett, left us scratching our big ol’ noggins. We discuss his decision to join his partner’s kill-the-clutter challenge with regards to their massive backlog of unprocessed images. I’d guess most photographers one time or the other find themselves in a quandary with faced with photography backlog, but how many have the confidence to set a deadline to catch up and then delete the images which have been left untouched? Please have a listen as we go back and forth over Darwin’s blog post.

Bits n’ Bites

How do you travel light when it comes to your photography? Do you have any tips or tricks for doing so? Please share the wealth with your fellow listeners! Do you think we should care when other photographers make a decision about their photography? And why do we care? Should the impact matter at all? How do you handle your photography backlog? Have you ever made such a bold decision as we discussed on the show? Oh, the questions.

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!

Bits ‘n Bites

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!
