Ep #068 - How To Get Your Lens On

Ep #068 - How To Get Your Lens On

This week the podcast was edited by Dustin. Please, direct all your comments about the editing directly to him.

Come experience the fresh hell that Dustin put me through this week. It's an entire episode with a focal point on gear talk. It's terrible. Or at least I think it is. In Dustin's words:

This week we cover all things lenses. From start to finish, how wide is too wide, how shallow is (steve) too shallow. You get it.

Ep. #067 - Photographers From the Future with Thom Stewart and Greg Campbell of The Snappening

Ep. #067 - Photographers From the Future with Thom Stewart and Greg Campbell of The Snappening

This week we're using some quantum entanglement to record an episode with Thom Stewart and Greg Campbell, who just so happen to live in the future. Well, I mean, like 15 - 17 hours ahead of us. We're talking about Photoshop for the iPad, Yongnuo's Mirrorless Camera, Yongnuo Flashes, Godox Flashes, Shooting with Sony, and also expressing milk while shooting a wedding (something none of us are really qualified to talk about, but whatever).

Cliques in the industry or horrible friends that don't celebrate your successes.
How do photographers handle extreme weather like hurricanes?

Q&A:
Do you have something in your contract that states you'll be the sole photographer? What do you do about iPad photographers? What would you recommend the best Facebook advertising route might be?

Ep. #058 - Canon EOS R, Fuji XT-3, and Mavic 2 Pro Failure

Follow Up:
Phantom Producer Louie Novak updates us on the case of the fat shaming photographer.
The company Dustin uses to help him with his SEO is falling to pieces all around him. He was contacted by a former employee. It's bad.
Dustin's Mavic 2 Pro has arrived and he can finally update us on what it's like to fly that beautiful baby.

Beer Talk:
Steve's drinking a Zombie Dust from Three Floyds in Munster, IN

Topics:
This week we're talking about the Canon EOS R, the new Canon R-mount lenses, and the Fuji XT-3. It's a gear heavy week and Steve hates it. We also talk about a videographer who asked a photographer for over 400 photos to help complete their wedding video.

Q&A: What's the bare minimum gear for getting into wedding videography? What can I use to help with follow focus for videos? Can I ask a photog's client if I can shoot a wedding video for them? How do you get info from brides? Do you make a timeline?

That's all from Grand Master DJ D-Mac Attack and Dr. Oll SteVan this week.

If you want to read more about that Canon EOS R, here are the two articles Steve talked about in the episode:
Rumor: Canon has Two Full Frame Cameras in the Works
Canon Unveils the EOS R

If Steve forgot to add some links that Dustin said he would add, then send us an email... because Steve vaguely remembers Dustin saying something like that but unfortunately can't remember what it was about.

Ep. #057 - How Do You Handle Difficult Clients?

Follow Up:
Did Dustin get his Mavic 2 Pro yet? If not, what happened to it?
We're back on those Cole Haans again, because they've put out a new shoe that doesn't look like a moonshoe... and Dustin bought a pair.
Everyone loves Dustin's smokebomb shot (pictured above), including Steve (surprisingly).

Beer Talk:
Steve's drinking a Bell's Two Hearted. One of the best beers from the midwest that's readily available pretty much all over the US (at least every liquor store he's been inside).
Dustin's drinking white wine from a local winery in the Fort Wayne area called Two EEs.

Topics:
How do we handle edit requests? Is it weird to pay someone in advance of their service on the wedding day? Your Instagram might be hacked. Stop turning your greens into browns in Lightroom. It looks like crap. There's a 150 megapixel medium format camera that was released. Canon's releasing two new mirrorless cameras this week that'll be full frame. Nikon apologizes because they can't keep up with demand for the Nikon Z7.

Q&A:
What helped you learn video? What are your methods for backing up data? How do you handle difficult clients?

Then there's some after show talk about Dustin's upcoming weddings and stuff. Fox safety issues and animal cruelty. Plus, Dustin says something crazy about Steve.

Ep. #056 - Fixing the Nikon Z7

Steve's drinking a Flat 12 Pogue's Run Porter, again. Dustin's not drinking, again... But apparently he had a lot of vodka cranberries right before we recorded.

Dustin tells a story about smoke bombs. Then we talk about a dilemma with the Knot. After that we transition into the Drone Zone to talk about the new DJI Mavic 2 Pro and DJI Mavic 2 Zoom. One of us has already pre-ordered the Pro. Then we talk about the new Nikon Z6 and Z7. A lot of photographers seem to be upset about it because it doesn't live up to their expectations, so Steve lays out a plan to fix the Nikon Z7. It all applicable to the Nikon Z6 too. Then we briefly mention the Carl Zeiss fixed lens camera that was teased on the same day that DJI and Nikon announced their big news. After that we talk about the idea of a wedding tax because of a post we read on Reddit (link below).

https://www.reddit.com/r/WeddingPhotography/comments/97fjim/totally_not_a_wedding_clients/?st=JKVF124F&sh=bf9f1325

Then it's on to some Q&A! Questions this week include: Does anyone use third party batteries for their DSLRs? If so what does everyone recommend? Are there any risks? How many of you offer set discounts and if so to whom? What have been people's experiences with offering discounts?

Frustrating Drone Footage

In the last episode of the podcast Dustin spent a very long time complaining about the drone footage from a recent wedding he shot. He complained a lot about the visuals from the drone. That unfortunately doesn't translate very well to an audio podcast. So, we've gone ahead and decided to upload the footage from the drone. It's only a little over 2 minutes long. It's not a good representation of Dustin's work or his brand/style. So without further adieu, here it is:


Also, I went back and added the footage to the last post with the embedded episode of the podcast. Since most people don't look at the non-podcast episode blog posts, I thought that would work out better. So, if you're one of the few people who look at both, sorry for showing you a video you already saw in a different blog post.

We'll be back this upcoming Sunday with a new episode of the podcast. See you all then!

Ep. #055 - How Many Wedding Photographers is too Many?

Season 2 of WPH kicks off with a bang! We're talking about what's new. We're talking about what we're getting rid of in this season. There could be a murder! There could be a wedding... Well, there will probably be lots of weddings.

Follow Up:
Dustin talks about the resolution to his copyright infringement issue. Dustin reveals the decision he made about whether or not to photoshop the CZ off the ring. We apologize for putting out an episode where Dustin teased an amazing instastory... two days after the instastory was actually shot and made live on Instagram and one full day after it disappeared from our instagram instastory.

Alcohol Talk:
Steve's drinking a Redvolution from Bota Box. We're classing things up this season. It's all boxed wine instead of beer... or at least it is for this episode's goof.

Topics:
We shot a wedding together! We talk about the awesome Fort Wayne wedding community (Steve's words). We talk about how many wedding photographers and videographers is too many to have at a shoot. Dustin had six total at this most recent shoot. We answer a question that Dustin's intern asked at the wedding. The question being whether or not she should go back to college or just start shooting photography professionally and start her business up. Then we discuss phone etiquette. Dustin talks about the appropriate way to place a phone call to a potential vendor while Steve just goes on a fiery rant about people that talk phone calls in cars and public places when there are other people present trying to have a conversation. Next up we talk about the Nikon mirrorless camera rumors.

Here are links to the Nikon mirrorless rumors:

https://nikonrumors.com/2018/08/12/this-is-how-the-back-of-the-nikon-mirrorless-camera-looks.aspx/

Q&A
Do you use polarized filters? When we're shooting outside in daylight at a wedding? How do you keep track of poses?

Here's that drone footage that Dustin spent half the episode complaining about:
