Episode 55 – Nighttime Shooting

Here are the awesome show notes for Episode 55, covering nighttime shooting. We start out by covering the essential gear for nighttime photography, which is basically a remote and a tripod. For remotes, we use cheap wired remotes from Hong Kong–not the ridiculously overpriced first party ones. If the one at that link isn’t compatible with your camera, keep searching Amazon; you should be able to find one for <$15. You’ll want a wired remote for bulb mode shooting so you can “ghost” people out of your...

Episode 53 – Nik Software

In this episode we talk about the various types of Nik Software. You can read more about these programs on Nik’s website. Very little on Disney in this episode, although we do discuss how the various software might work well for Disney photos. At the end of the episode, Tom goes on a tangent about murder-kittens. You can read more about this in the Washington Post, or in this hilarious...

Episode 52 – Post Processing

On this episode, we talk post processing. Pretty pedestrian stuff at first: we all just discuss how we import images into Lightroom (Cory and Ryan) or Bridge/Adobe Camera Raw (Tom). Tom starts rambling on about how he uses presets in Adobe Camera Raw. Nothing important here. Cory mentions Matt Kloskowski, who has a lot of Lightroom presets. Cory then asks about editing night images. Ryan discusses editing photos together to adjust white balance and saving photos as TIFFs before bringing them into Photoshop or Photomatix. From there, we warned...

Episode 51 – Fully Manual Lenses

On this episode, we basically just plugged a lot of Rokinon lenses. Someone from Rokinon, if you’re reading this, you owe us $6.73 for that. Our advertising doesn’t come cheap! We primarily focused on the Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens, which is highly recommended by all. Tom reviewed that lens here. We also discussed a full frame alternative to this lens, the Zenitar 16mm f/2.8 fisheye, although Tom remarked that the Rokinon 8mm will still work on full frame–you’ll just have to crop. Corey mentioned the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8...

Episode 50 – 50th Episode Celebration Extravaganza

Episode 50 – 50th Episode Celebration Extravaganza

The guys start out the show by talking about how they already broke their New Year’s Resolution from Episode 49 to buy less gear. Cory bought a new Canon 40mm f/2.8 STM pancake lens and Tom bought the Nikon 28-300mm VR full frame super-zoom. Ryan was silent as to what he purchased, so we’ll assume he bought this lens. For this show, we gave the power to the people and responded to questions listeners Tweeted us. We rambled on and talked about nonsense for a while, but here are some of the salient points worth mentioning. Tom...

Episode 49 – New Year’s Resolutions

In this episode, the guys talk about their photographic New Year’s Resolutions goals for 2013. Tom starts with his resolution to improve his off-camera lighting skills. He received this off-camera lighting set-up for Christmas and has already been testing it on the world famous Yossarian the Cat. Ryan’s first resolution is to improve his video skills. Cory wants to slow down (he’s nearing Ryan’s age, after all) and be more deliberate with his photography. He referenced this article on DPS about slowing down and taking...

Episode 48 – Lighting with Cody Sims

This week we were joined by Cody Sims to talk all about lighting. If you are not familiar with Cody, you need to check out his two different flickr streams (Disney photos | cody+camera). During this episode, we discuss a bit of off-camera lighting, including gels, umbrellas, wireless triggers, and Nikon’s CLS. We also discuss a lot of things that have nothing to do with lighting. Enjoy!

Episode 33 – Smaller, Lighter Camera Options

This week on Epsiode 33 of ISO 5571 we discuss the smaller, lighter camera options.  Tom and Cory recently purchased smaller cameras as backups for occasions when they’d rather not lug the heavy DSLR equipment around.  It used to be that if you wanted something small and convenient like a point and shoot camera, you would be giving up quality and creative control.  This is changing, however.  The new generation of point and shoot cameras as well as the latest in the micro four thirds format are capable of producing results that...

Episode 32 – Disneyland Photography with Scott Brinegar

This week on ISO 5571 we have a very special guest, Scott Brinegar, who has worked with Disneyland as a freelancer for almost 27 years. He’s worked many high-profile shoots at Disneyland over the years including Miley Cyrus’ 16th birthday, a post-Olympic swim meet down Main Street and and many other promotional celebrations.  We hope you enjoy our discussion about his Disney experiences. Scott and his colleague Amanda Harvie have a collection of limited edition fine art photography prints available at The Disney Gallery in...
