That’s right, folks! Moose Peterson makes sure he keeps the FUN in Photography FUNdamentals by making his latest ebook accessible to all. Tune in for an update.

Sony & Fuji Chat, Our Kickin’ Listeners and More!

Mac has some beef with his Sony NEX and the Milky Way and needed to chat about it. We also chat about a couple of X-Pro 1 happenings! One of our awesome and oh-s0 patient listeners, Chris Tan, asked us a question and we finally answer it on the show.

Is Photography Unforgettable?

This is a tough, tough subject to tackle, as everyone has an opinion on whether we take too many photos, and if we do take photos, are we effectively doing so? Does every photograph need to tell the viewer a story? A recent article in the Globe and Mail fired us up and we took to our mics in an attempt to dissect this tricky topic. Please tune in and see if you agree or disagree with us or the judges opinions / decisions as mentioned in the article. We somehow became lost in audio translation with our rambles (it happens!) as we made our way through this topic, but hopefully you will have something to think about at the end of the show!

Bits n’ Bites:

What are your thoughts on the amount of photographs we take? Do you think we are overdoing it? Why or why not? If you’re a Sony NEX user, have you run into the same issues as Mac did, or better yet, do you have a solution? Are you excited for focus peaking to hit the little Fuji X-Pro 1?

Sheep Photography + Test Drives + Canon

Canon did it again! They teased us for a long, long time and they have finally released their latest ooh la la lens, the 200-400mm ƒ4, so you know we have a few things to say about that!

Brad Pitt anyone? His 2008 images from a magazine spread have popped up again. I’m not sure why, but they have and it’s left folks weighing in on his talent … Are these photos indicative of his mad photo skills or are they just a bunch of grainy family snaps?

Hey, wanna go for a test drive, y’all? If you are in America and you meet the requirements, you might be able to in the form of a bag from Think Tank Photo. They’ve come up with something a little unique, so have a listen and see if you fit the bill.

Oh, Flickr. You Didn’t!

I guess I should say oh Marissa, you DIDN’T? Some huge, HUGE changes were made to the Flickr photo sharing site. The response has definitely been split and it’s left photographers everywhere buzzing. We go through the changes and we share our reactions on said change.

Bits n’ Bites

OK, here come the questions … what are your thoughts about the Canon 200-400mm ƒ4 lens? Would you shell out your hard earned cash on this lens, or any lens in the same price bracket? What are your thoughts about Brad Pitt’s photography? Does his fame influence your opinions of his work? Flickr — what’cha think about their huge change? Are they going in the right direction or alienating too many photographers? Please chime in and let us know what you think!

Grizzly and wolf by Rob Daugherty (aka Robswildlife)


Before we get rolling with our interview with @Robswildlife, there we a few other things on our mind, such as the rumours swirling about the Sony NEX systems, Photokina and more.


Some news has been announced from SmugMug which are leaving some customers / users feeling a little muggy … We talk about what’s the haps at the Smug Camp.


We couldn’t resist asking Rob Daugherty, better known as Robswildlife or The Vest Guy, to drop by the ol’ Shutter Time bunker for a chat about his work and his undeniable passion for wildlife. So. Much. Fun. Sit back and enjoy and soak up the goodness of all things Rob.

Bits ‘n Bites

Are you currently using SmugMug for your photography, whether to sell or just to share? What are your thoughts on the price increase? Will you be sticking around or jumping ship? Will you be paying attention to Photokina and if so, what announcements are you hoping for? Let us know! Thanks again to Rob for the great chat!

Episode 37 ~ Falling For Fall

Same Old Song 

Before we discuss the goodness of all things fall photography, Mac shares his experience on how he was recently perceived on a pro shoot. Have a listen and let us know if you have ever been judged by your gear, whether you’re in the field, studio, etc?!

Damn You, Adobe

We have a little business to settle. It has a little something to do with Fuji X-Pro 1 and RAW conversion … all I know is someone is eating a little crow … twice.

Your Questions

We took a recent question from one of our listeners, Ross, and address it on the show. Thanks again for the feedback, mate!

Embracing Change

The arrival of fall colours are one change I can handle! We thought we’d get ahead of the game, so we dug around the bunker for some tips on enhancing your autumn photography.

Bits ‘n Bites

We have a great interview coming up with another wildlife photographer, so stay tuned for details! Rawr. Speaking of wildlife photographers — if you haven’t listened to the Moose Peterson interview yet, grab a brew and have a listen. It’s a long one, but worth the time.

Do you have any photography questions for us? If so, please leave us a comment or send us a note on Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus. You can also subscribe to the show for free on iTunes!

Thanks as always for tuning in!
