Gloves Are Off
Who knew something as simple as inventory management/post-processing software could cause such a ripple through the Shutter Time airwaves, though I suppose that’s just how things roll at times.
Google announced they will no longer be updating their Nik software collection and many photographers are none too happy with this move, even though it was long expected. One of our listeners chimed in suggesting an Adobe rant and gave his own rant about Lightroom (thanks, JF) and because it’s something on my mind, we took to the mics to sort it out. The gloves came off several times, but even with all the eye-rolling, grunts and awkward silence, the bickering is always in good fun! Pinky swear. Please join us as we discuss Adobe Lightroom and some alternatives available today. Also, we are sorry about your ears. Just a fair warning.
Note: for the record, I COMPLETELY agreed with Mac after we stopped recording about the competition segment at the end of the show, and we kept the conversation flowing for another hour or so. He was right – I can admit it, as painful as it might be. But just about that one part, ha.

Are you currently using Adobe CC and if so, is it working for you? Does your post work involve alternatives to Adobe and if so, what are they? Please share the wealth! Is there anything else in the industry that is getting your goat and riling you up? We would love to hear about it because as we said at the end of the show, it’s up to us photographers/users/customers to make the change, bit by bit. You can keep the conversation going by chiming in on Bookface, Twitter or by leaving a comment on the blog! Of course you can subscribe for free via iTunes or Stitcher!
Thanks to our listeners for the suggestions and Adobe rants and thanks as always for tuning in, folks!

Making fun of Sony and Canon
Making fun of Sony and Canon never gets old. Especially when both companies have clearly forgotten that the megapixel war has finished. Sony 72megapixel and Canon 120 megapixel cameras have been rumored.
It looks like Adobe had finally got some competition in the RAW market. Two new contenders from Corel and On1 are vying for the RAW file processing space. Corel’s After Shot 3 has almost the same features as Adobe’s Lightroom, and the price at 80CDN is hard to beat. Also it is the only one that will run on Linux. On1 on the other hand only announced their On1 Photo Raw. It’s going to combine their photo editing/filter suite with a RAW processor. Exciting times! Maybe Adobe will actually start working on their photo suite.
It’s tough time to call ourselves Canadian, without hanging our head in shame. The latest stunt perpetrated by four yahoos in Yellowstone park, just for the sake of a “better shot”. A lot similar incidents popped up on the tubes, like angry hairy moles. Old buildings being set on fire, just because some maroon photographer wanted a good shot. We got our inspiration from an article my Missy MWAC about photographers becoming like pigeons…

Let us know what do you think about the new RAW processors being announced, and the main topic of the show. Are we as photographers immune to the rules of mere mortals?
