Niccor. Pro Sports Photographer (Pro Dart Circuit, Italy) 

For those wondering who the dead sexy, tequila soaked photographer from our last show really is, he is none other than our good pal, Scott Hutchison. We thank Scott for the crazy idea and for the bloody good time, before, during and after the show. Scott has been on our show before, so please check out his work and maybe give the old shows a listen!

Blogs, Instagram and Vlogs, Oh My!

Another good mate of the show (and previous guest), Michael Van der Tol, had another show idea for us, so we ran with it. This topic suggestion keeps us in the current decade, but does allow us to wander back in time a wee bit: the demise of the photo blog and the rise of Instagram. Is this such a thing? We decided to also throw photo vlogs in the mix. Please join us as we tackle this subject!

Join the Convo

What do you think about the demise of blogs? Is this such a thing? If you’re a photo blogger, have you ditched your blog for Instagram, Twitter or perhaps even vlogging? If you have some bloggers, Instagrammers and/or vloggers we need to follow, please chime in an share the wealth! As always, you can find us on Twitter and Bookface and of course, you can subscribe for free on iTunes and Stitcher!

Thanks again to our good mates, Scott and Michael, for the show suggestions. Thanks also to our listeners who have been chatting up a storm with us, including Dave, David, Jean-Françoise, Mark and more!

Thanks for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!

Only dust and windShutter Time goes family

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.

Episode 46 ~ Year End Reflections, 2012

Episode 46 ~ Year End Reflections, 2012, reflections, Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, camera apps, photography, shutter time with sid and mac, podcast, yegphotoThe End Is Near 

The year end, that is! We took to our mics for one last time in 2012 to discuss and reflect on what we have learned this year from having our podcast, why we still have fun recording, etc. But before we get to sitting back with some Christmas cheer induced beverages, we dive in the Instagram debate of late …

Oh No, They Didn’t!

Even though by the time this podcast hits the ol’ internets, the news will be a little old, it’s still being talked about and for good reason. Instagram (Facebook) shocked many photographers and those in and around the industry alike by revising their TOS (terms of service), which implied they would be able to sell your images to advertisers without your consent or knowledge. I know, right? We chew over what the hell they were thinking and the revisions to the revision (ha!) that have taken place due to some strong ass backlash. Have a listen and please let us know what you think about this!

Flickr, You Dead Sexy Thing

Perfect timing on Flickr’s part, but they have done something with their aging app, causing many toes to curl and even tingle.

Ooh, Growth

We reflect over our last year of podcasting and how it has changed us. ‘Nuff said, right? Please tune in and allow us to indulge in more self absorbed chatter. Sort of.

A Couple More Notes 

We can’t thank you enough for continuing to tune in to our little podcast. It means more to us than you can probably imagine. You’re all fantastic and we couldn’t do this without you.

We forgot to mention this on the show (oh, bugger), but of course, we cannot forget our wonderful friends and guests for sitting down with us for interviews and having a good ol’ photography chat! Thank you so much for participating in the show. Our brilliant and super talented guests have been:

Terry O’Riordan

Thanks for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!

Episode 45 ~ Through Our Christmas Lens

Episode 45 ~ Through Our Christmas Lens, Christmas photo ideas, ethics in photographyHo Ho Ho ‘n Stuff

We’ve already made you shiver with candy cane tingles over our gift suggestions for the photographer in your life during the holiday season. Now we’re back with some Christmas photo ideas and tips for making the most out of your holiday photos! But first …

In This Corner 

We don our boxing gloves and have a good ol’ fashioned debate on an always hot topic, ethics in photography. This time, our debate is based around a recent tragedy in the US, where the actions of one photographer have sparked many discussions surrounding his actions, raising the question, what would you do in his place.

Say Candy Cane!

There are many reasons to take Christmas photos, so we suggest some ideas you may not have thought of! I mean, could you imagine being at this holiday dinner and not having your camera with you? Hopefully our ideas, combined with your own, will make for some stellar and memorable holiday images! Note: we start the Christmas goodness at 23:52

Bits n’ Bites

Have we missed any holiday photo tips? Please share your own! Do you have any thoughts on ethics? Sure you do, so please chime in! Mac already got the discussion rolling on our Facebook page, and now we’re just waiting for some action! We’d love to hear your thoughts on the show, the topics, and whatever else comes to your photography driven minds. As always, we are chilling on the web in the Twitters, Google Plus, Facebook and of course, you can subscribe to our show via iTunes!

Thanks as always for tuning in! Oh, and just because

Cheers, y’all!
