Shutters Inc – episode 137

This week, SI comes to you from the old Victorian river town of Echuca, located on the Murray River (which forms the state boarder between Victoria and New South Wales).

Recorded after one day of a 2 day photogrpahic workshop. The usual suspects talk about all aspects of the workshop, photograhy, working with models, lighting, you name it.

Shutters Inc – episode 133

This week, David Elfering reminds us of some of the bargains that can be had on Ebay with regards to slightly older digital SLR’s,
Jim Rockewll chimed in on the ‘business stationery design’ topic with a reminder to leave some white space in your design, as well as a request for the donation button to be returned to (working on that, Jim),
a bit of a chat about our family holiday down the south coast (oh, and I will state here that I mistakenly claimed that the shot of Max and Aztec in the early morning light was SOOC… I realised after we had recorded that I had in fact touched up the contrast in Lightroom),
some discussion about using off-camera flash in bright daylight and the potential drawbacks thereof,
plus why having all the best camera gear whn you’re just learning is not always a good thing (the School of Hard Knocks has its advantages).

Shutters Inc – episode 114

We’re back!
After some catching-up chit-chat, Shelton goes on to talk about
the new Sony a900,
Canon EOS 5D Mark II,
the Nikon D700 (which he’s about to get, naturally!),
and some more about off-camera flash.
Remember to learn those formulae, folks!

Guide number divided by f-stop equals distance, and
Guide number divided by distance equals f-stop.

And apologies up front for the “squawks” in Shelton’s audio… had some bandwidth issues while we were recording.
