Episode 008 – Why Doesn’t IG Love Me?

In Episode by nnps1 Comment

Ok, ok. We admit it. Episode 8 comes out of the gate a little hot but what can we say? Brian has a short fuse when it comes to the whiny and entitled crap that some photographers cry about. Like it or not but there is no democracy with sharing your photos online and, well, this one article put Brian in the red. Fortunately, Sharky was there to even things out and calm the tides with his patently awful “Dad Jokes.” Hey, you keep asking for them and we’re not the sort of folks who say, “no,” to the wishes of our dear audience. The second half of the show turns gears onto a seriously unfortunate event where a wedding photographer spaced out and left his backpack with his camera on an NYC subway car. Yikes. All that and a fresh serving of “What’s On Your Gear Shelf?” will call Episode 8 done.

Show Notes

  • A recent article by Baber Afzal grinds Brian’s gears when the author complains that major Instagram hubs only share the work of other super-popular photographers and not of lesser-known creators. [via DIY Photography]
  • Sharky takes a moment to sneak in his IG follower count. Brian had to follow suit.
  • Sharky and Brian begin laying out the problems of today’s generation of creatives who have a misplaced sense of entitlement.
  • Brian then moves the show onto the second topic where photographer, Kurt Sneddon, spaced out and left his backpack with his camera on an NYC subway car. Oh, and the camera had the only copy of a wedding event in it. [via DIY Photography]
  • Sharky and Brian continue on by sharing some of their strategies for backing up photos on the fly and when returning home

  1. You mentioned in this show or the last one that there was a hard drive that you could put a memory card into, press a button, and it would transfer the data automatically. I know of the OLD devices that had screens and the ability to preview images. I also know about the project to be able to quick edit video on the go, I think it is called a Gearbox. But none of these are what you described. Can you post a link to the device that just copies the data over to a external HDD?
