Shutters Inc – episode 120

Filed under: !Podcasts,CX1,Ricoh,Shutters Inc,White balance,workflow — Bruce Williams @ 12:29

This week, Shelton is playing with the new Ricoh CX1,
plus we talk about white balance,
Daryl Gungadoo’s workflow,
and the dude at Paxton’s at North Ryde who deserves an award for telling the truth!
Unlike the clown I ran into yesterday (long after this podcast was recorded, unfortunately) at Clive Anthony’s in Castle Hill, who had absolutely NFI when it came to photography, but was quite happy to stand there and make up crap and sprout it as gospel to every unsuspecting potential camera buyer who walked his way.
Shame shame shame.
How is it that you can strike such polar opposites all within one 7 day period?

Fun and games with this week’s recording. Listen in for the details.
Shutters Inc now has its very own domain name… woohoo! Bookmark shuttersincpodcast to only receive posts from audio2u.com which relate to Shutters Inc. How cool is that?
Shelton and Bruce talk about the Gorillapod Original (that’s the little one), Shelton answers a couple of listener e-mails, and then dishes out his top 10 tips for getting correct exposure…

01. Grey card (such as the Lastolite Ezy Balance, available in Australia from Kayell)
02. Histogram
03. Watch the background
04. Watch for highlights
05. Spot metering
06. + or – 2 stops
07. Meter for the highlights
08. Filters
09. Reflectors or fill-flash
10. What is CORRECT exposure anyway?

Print these out and stick ‘em in your camera bag!!

Shelton has again shared some of his photography with us. Check these out for creative metering.

Tzee Yoong’s photo from the Silk Road, as mentioned by Shelton.

Also, after recording this episode, I took Cath and Max up to Newcastle (2 hours drive north of Sydney) to see the Pasha Bulker, a freighter which has run aground on Nobby’s Beach. Check out some of the shots.
