Down Under

Since the Shutter Time budget didn’t include a trip to Australia, we took to the airwaves to hang with our favourite Australian photographer, Andrew … aka Big lens Little lens! We discussed many topics … his work, his style, preferences, printing, trophy hunting, etc.  Andrew lives in one of the most spectacular places on earth where incredible landscapes are the norm, so join us and listen to how he views his world behind the lens. You might be surprised.

Chatty Shooters

The funny thing about this podcast is it lasted another 2 hours after we stopped recording. I think it was our longest post-podcast chat to date, with the extended post-podcast convo with Moose coming in a strong second. Gotta love those good ol’ fashioned photography discussions, especially the off-the-record ones.

Make sure you check out more of Andrew’s work. You won’t be disappointed!

I should mention the photos on this site are of course courtesy of our mate, Big lens Little Lens!

Join the Convo

We’d love to hear your thoughts on this show, Andrew’s work and anything else on your photographic minds. You can find us at Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and of course, you can subscribe for free at iTunes or check us out at Stitcher.

Thanks again for the chat, Andrew. It was an absolute delight to have you on the show!

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

episode 68, Dear Vivian Maier, Shutter Time, podcast, yegphoto

 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!

Episode 20 ~ Hitting the Streets

Episode 20 ~ Hitting the Streets

Ooh, Canon.

Not 5 months after announcing the release of the 1D-X, the much anticipated successor to the 5D Mark II (circa 2008) was finally announced! Enter the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. Are you swooning yet? We chew over some of the features from this newest kid on the block.

Lightroom 4

After a short beta testing period, this bad boy finally hit the shelves, so to speak. Rumour has it you won’t be disappointed with this upgrade. Have a listen as Mac shares his deep insight on this software. 2 words: DNG file.

In Your Face

Street Photography ~ such a broad topic with so many elements, it can seem rather overwhelming, yet easy all the same. We break down some of the basics to get you hitting the streets, as well as discuss the art of street photography from our POV.

Bits n’ Bites

Have you tried LR4 yet? If so, what are your initial thoughts? Will the Canon 5D Mark III be making its way into your arsenal of gear? The show is sort of long (just an hour), but your commute won’t seem so dull now, will it? You’re welcome. Don’t forget to check us out on Twitter and G+! As always, you can wander over to iTunes and subscribe to the show for free!

Thanks for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!
