755 I Fixed My Shutter

Today’s episode is about overcoming fears, about doing something you haven’t done before and about repairing a shutter. Chris also does a quick detour into photo history, talking about Prontor and Compur shutters and how they defined a standard that has been part of many cameras and still is even until today: the PC Sync port. Hear Chris and Nick Fancher talk about his new book Studio Anywhere 2: Hard Light – they talk about reducing gear, getting visually stunning results from small flash and learning to get more out of the things you already own.

Andy listens to TFTTF under ground, Adam wonders how to test for maximum dynamic range of your camera and Chris dives right in, to the point where he gets out the camera and does a live test on the show. Holger calls in from Mexico and wonders if what he’s doing with his polarizer is the right thing.. you will learn about the right light, the proper angles and the best things to use a polarizer for. Right down to Rayleigh scattering.

752 Augmented Photography

Chris does some speculating on the future of photography, especially in light of the next big wave of computing: Augmented and Mixed Reality – this will impact photography on many different levels. There will be new technical possibilities (think 3D sensing), there will be new ways to present photography (virtual displays), new ways of teaching (virtual classes, tours, workshops), and even new creative tools – either that or Chris is completely out of his mind. Chime in in the comments below, with a voice comment (send to [email protected]) or discuss on the #future-talk channel in the TFTTF Slack. Also Kade asks about ISO and dynamic range and how they are linked together.

751 Giveaway and Modes. Guest: Valerie Jardin

Get the eBook 1 Hour 1000 Pics – Supercharge your Lightroom Workflow for free. David wonders what shutter modes Chris uses and prompts him to go deep into his reasoning for or against certain modes. Chris will also look into why over- and underexposure are absolutely fine and sometimes even necessary in some of his photography and illustrates his thoughts with several photos, including group shots from previous photo tours and workshops and a couple of example of his street photography from New York. Certain types of photos can really benefit from over- or underexposure.

Street photography is also what today’s guest is known for.
