This week, Shelton narrowly avoids a heart attack after leaving one of his camera bags on site after a shoot,
check out the video of Shelton ripping out “Ain’t no sunshine“,
Bruce, Cathie and Max are off for a 12 night cruise for Christmas,
and who’s up for an end-of-year bash in Melbourne?
Then, Shelton continues the “Going pro” theme….
Knowing what you can (and cannot) deliver when asked to handle a shoot,
Don’t steal another photographer’s client (if you’re asked to fill in),
Jim Rockwell sent us an e-mail regarding doing research before cold calling,
Making something (specifically an image) out of nothing (an uninspiring product or location), which Shelton did this past week shooting water pipes,
Bruce asks about artifical lighting large scale,
and Shelton is loving his new book, Joe McNally’s ‘Hot Shoe Diaries’.

Twenty20 Celebrity cricket match

Filed under: Available light,Focal length,Panorama,Shutters Inc — Bruce Williams @ 22:34

Tonight, Cath, Max and I went to the Twenty20 Celebrity cricket match at the Sydney Cricket Ground, which was held as a fundraiser for victims of the Victorian bushfires.
This is a panorama I shot.
For those who are interested, it was 7 RAW images, shot in portrait mode at approximately 40mm focal length (even though I could have zoomed out to 18mm, the longer focal length reduces the perspective distortion).

Shutters Inc – episode 089

Filed under: !Podcasts,Available light,Shutters Inc — Bruce Williams @ 22:05

Yes, I’m publishing a day early this week as I have a recording session tomorrow night which would prevent me from publishing then.

This week, “second wedding photographer” etiquette,
Bruce’s photos of the lunar eclipse,
Shutters Inc does in fact have ANOTHER female listener,
we discuss the idea of video podcasts,
plus Shelton discusses subordinate/dominant relationships within photographs.

And, as discussed in the podcast, here are the submissions received so far in the “natural light window portrait” assignment.
I am deliberately NOT putting people’s names beside the images.
You each know your own image, but that’s it.
Giggle giggle.
