Reunited and It Feels So Good

Ah, Mac and Dom are together again.  The photo bromance of the year is brewing once again and this time, I’m joining them for a good ol’ fashioned chat about gear and other photo goodness. Uncle Murphy tried like hell to stop us, but we made it through the recording! Huzzah!

Workflow … Revisited. Again. 

Ah, the never ending quest to simplify one’s workflow never seems to end. Mac updates us on his new found fling with Capture One. Tune in to see how it’s going and what he likes about it!

Ansel, Is That You?

Everyone is talking about the intriguing photography job posting (now closed) from the Department of Interior. We quickly dish on it, but pretty much are just waiting to see who snags this highly coveted position.

Mmmm … Gear

With all the gear chat, rumours, hints of mirrorless this and medium format that, Dom suggested we get together to discuss some of the rumours and whether or not these anticipated announcements of new bodies are really necessary. Please tune in as we have a casual chat about the state of our gear, updates, firmware and more!

Thanks again to Dom for the topic suggestion, chat and great time! Please make sure to take a moment and check out his beautiful work!

Join the Convo

We’d love to hear your thoughts about medium format bodies and whatever is on your photographic minds! You can find us via Twitter and Bookface! You can also subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher!

 Before we discuss / swoon over the work of Vivian Maier, we tackle some gear news!

 Mmmm … Fresh Gear … Again

Ahh, the gear race heats up once again! Canon is nowhere to be found, but Nikon and Sony are making sure we are keeping their names fresh on our minds. With the release of the full frame mirrorless systems from Sony and these crazy rumours and delicious teasers from Nikon, as part of their ‘Pure Photography’ series, it remains an interesting time in the world of all things camera gear. Not gonna lie — those Nikon video teasers (1, 2 and the latest) are intriguing and actually sound pretty sexy, so I’m definitely waiting to see what comes down the pipe. After bashing the NEX systems last show, of course Sony proves me wrong with the release of the good looking a7R and a7, 36MP and 24MP, respectively. Check out the excellent hands on review from Steve Huff!

Find of the Century

I’m sure our Shutter Time friend / partner-in-crime, Scott Hutchison, might say this is an understatement, but regardless we’re thrilled he shared the wealth with Mac and we got to check out Vivian Maier’s work. Mac is very fussy when it comes to photography books, so we know this book is a must read! A jaw dropping and off the charts amazing story + upcoming documentary, Finding Vivian Maier, add a unique mystery and intrigue to her incredible body of work. We discuss her work, the film and what her work means to photography today. Please have a listen and we hope you take the time to check out her story; it’s most definitely worth your time.

Bits ‘n Bites

Has your interest been piqued from either Nikon or Sony? What do you think of the new full frame mirrorless bodies or are you still sticking with the good ol’ DSLRs? Are you aware of the story behind the discovery of Vivian Maier’s work? If so, we’d love to hear your thoughts! Please chime in! As always, you can subscribe for free to the show via iTunes and the Stitcher app. We’re always on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. Please drop us a line!

Thanks as always for tuning in, folks!

Cheers, y’all!

Shutter Time 2012 Holiday Gift Guide for Photographers

Santa’s New Bag, 2012

Before we start dishing on the Shutter Time 2012 Holiday gift guide photographers will love, we have a few things to crunch over first. Have a listen as we discuss a couple of headscratchers that led Mac to Facebook and Google Plus to start a discussion to hear your thoughts.

Oh, Canada

Decades following the US initiative on protecting the copyright of images taken by photographers for commissioned work, Canada stepped up, eh? We briefly talk about the impact for photographers.

Candy Cane Delight

We start the Christmas portion of the show at 27:49. We came up with 5 gifts each we think would make excellent choices for the photographer in your world, including yourself! Nothing wrong with a little gift giving to the hardest working photographer you know, right?

Bits n’ Bites

Do you have any gift ideas to add to our list? What are your thoughts about the updates to Bill C-11 for Canadian photographers? Did Sony Australia slaughter their photography fanbase with their latest Unfit to DSLR campaign? If you have any thoughts about this show, join in the discussion online or leave a comment here! We are of course on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. Don’t forget we are on iTunes where you can subscribe for free.

Just another note — we of course respect the opinion of others, and we thank other photographers for lending their voice to the discussion of photography, whether we may agree or not with them. It’s a beautiful thing when we can check egos at the door and just chat about the subject we all love most.

Thanks as always for tuning in. Truly! We appreciate you taking the time out of your busy lives to listen to our show. I’m all a quiver just thinking about it. Thank you, thank you!

Cheers, y’all!
