Episode 211 »» HDR Photography and Trey Ratcliff

It seems that neither Mac nor Antonio are overly excited with the new Canon full frame mirrorless camera.  Canon R seems to be basically a smaller lighter Canon 5d series camera with out the mirror. https://fstoppers.com/originals/canon-screwed-again-new-r-camera-just-mirrorless-5d-mark-iv-285018 There are also rumours of Panasonic coming into the full frame mirrorless market.  With all these mirrorless cameras, does Fujifilm need to fill the gap in their current line up and introduce a full frame camera. https://www.cnet.com/news/rumored-panasonic-full-frame-mirrorless-reveal-on-sept-25-is-odd-but-plausible/

Featured Photographer: Trey Ratcliff

https://stuckincustoms.smugmug.com https://www.thearcanum.com Trey is a prolific photographer and educator.  One can say that he is a pioneer in HDR photography.  His early travel images, which started the HDR craze.  His latest big project is the Arcanum.  A photographic online school, with a twist.  It is setup almost like a game, where you level up in your photography, by being paired with a Master.  Completing challenges allows you to learn and level up.  This unique school launched in 2013 and it is still going strong.  

HDR or High Dynamic Range photography, has been around for a very long time.  Because of the early sensor technology did not allow for good dynamic range, this technique was widely used, especially in real estate photography.  Even with advent of new digital sensors and their increased dynamic range, and some cameras offering in camera HDR, this technique hasn’t disappeared from photography.

You can get a decent HDR image just from one RAW file, but you’ll have to use some layering and masking in Photoshop. And it will depend on the initial image and its exposure. 
HDR hides nothing. It leaves no part of the image hidden. All the mysteries are gone. If you looked at page after page of HDR images then suddenly came to a shot with lots of dark black shadows, your eyes will be so happy because now they have something to rest on: the shadows.

Episode 208 »» Moonrise Over Brooklyn with Ward and Antonio

Moonrise Over Brooklyn

We have been discussing photography books on and off the show for years, however, it was during Antonio’s deep dive (thanks to Ward for the description) of Irving Penn that shifted our conversation with one of our listeners and great friend of the show, Ward Rosin. Thanks to his wonderful insight on photography books, we knew we had to take to the mics to discuss this further with no one better suited than Ward and Antonio. Please join us as we learn about the inspiration we can get from photography books and how the style and art from these photographers influences our own photography and the mind-to-camera connection.

“Inspiration comes from photo books and the history of photography and photographers.” – Ward Rosin, 2018

Episode 207 »» Are We Being Wasteful With Our Photography?

Wasted. 

Being wasteful in photography – is this such a thing? Do we waste our time, our resources and our chances / opportunities? As per classic Shutter Time style, we have differing opinions on this topic. Please join us as we hit the mics to debate this and more.

Beautiful.

While we have discussed this book in the past when Mac initially picked up the book, I have finally snagged a copy myself. Of course, we are talking about wonderful and soulful fine art landscape photographer, Olivier Du Tré and his book, Seeking Stillness. If you have yet to grab a copy or have not heard about the book, you can check out the links below for more information!
