Even now that Sid is gone (and I miss her dearly), the show has continued to produce great content and wonderful discussions between Mac and his new cohost, Kasia. I love sitting down and hearing the First Couple of Photography hash out some new subject on a Saturday morning on their patio or out on some wonderful photo trip.

Enjoyable and fun

In this episode we are out to our favourite park, waiting for the sunrise and frolicking with bison.  As expected lots of photographers arrived, as it was a beautiful "breakfast" for the bison.  It's never boring photographing these big hairy cows.  Especially on a frosty morning.  

Given the question by our friend David Szweduik, from Adventures in Creativity,  is setting a camera for different colors and effects would be considered cheating.  Well unless the camera manufacturers figure out a way of actually replacing skies in camera, then.... ah just listen to the show and you will find out :)

Rank #12: Episode 259: Camera doesn't matter

Podcast cover

In the creative pursuit of photograph, we often fall pray to advertising of the latest greatest equipment that apparently will make photography easier, better, and more enjoyable.

Rank #13: Episode 272: Are we really creative?

Podcast cover
Read more

We were proposed an idea, the creativity is done, specially in photography. There are so many photos out there of the seemingly the same thing. Same locations, same subjects, everything blends into boring "I've seen this a million times". So the question is are we really creative. Well if we look at the definition of creative in a dictionary it states: "producing or using original and unusual ideas". One could say that no we are not creative anymore, because we see the same images all the time, but are they really the same? As we know in landscape photography we will never take the same photograph, because of the environmental factors. Similar yes, but not the same and one could argue that every photograph is original in it's creation. This gave us an idea for a conversation about creativity and are we really creative?

Rank #19: Lessons Learned

Podcast cover
Read more

Another great idea from our friend David Szweduik, from Adventures in Creativity, was if we learned anything photographically this past year.  

To be perfectly honest, there was no eureka moments, but somethings like learning to shoot with 1 camera and 1 lens, or not to take a photo, when you know it will not turn out, thus saving you time in post processing.  Things like that.  

Have you learned anything during last year?  Share your stories with us.

Enjoy, and we will talk to you next week!

Winning Moments

Every time he is back on Shutter Time, this is a winning moment for us. Of course, I am talking about our brother from another mother, the ridiculously cool photographer and podcaster hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Antonio M. Rosario.

Inspired by the incredible award-winning images in the latest version of the book, Moments: The Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photographs by Hal Buell, we decided to discuss what we could learn from these Pulitzer Prize photographs that have been a part of our history since the first award was handed out in 1942 and the photographers who made them.

Disclaimer: we (mainly Sid) may have been pronouncing Pulitzer incorrectly as we have heard both versions. Before you refer to us as uncultured swine, perhaps just chime in and let us know which version is correct. Thanks! Join the Convo:

Chocolate Elephants

Mac was intrigued by the clever way Vancouver photographer, Ian McDonald, penned an article about making sense of your photography. We thought Ian’s article complimented one of Olaf Sztaba’s recent articles, Confidence–A Roller-Coaster to Seeing(Intro), which we discussed back on episode 182. Inspired by Ian’s words, we took to the mics to discuss his article, the wonderful videos by Ted Forbes on his The Art of Photography YouTube channel and more!
