Live Show Recap: Shoes

Guys, this is a rowdy one. Chelsea was on point last night! We’re looking at your shoes.

What do you think of the mics? I prefer them to the lav mics.

“Shoes. What are they? Where do they come from?” “That is not what we’re talking about today.”

Chelsea is trying to ferret out you fetishists.

Next week is “tree.” Singular? Who knows. “They tend to hang out in groups.”

Do you want to write for our blog? Please? Learn how to spell my name, then send me your pitches to


Ok, let’s see your shoes:

  • a pick right off the bat for this horseshoe
  • no matter how you cut it, crampon is a funny word
  • Tony tells a story about how to attempt to steal mismatched shoe sizes. Christina Perez, you’re on notice.
  • “like some kind of slutty clown
  • no one else mentioned this woman’s yellow Hitler mustache
  • “the only reason you put something on a post is if you’re about to shoot it”
  • “punk club”
  • “that sounds funny” “nope, it wasn’t funny”
  • one still shoe
  • good lighting
  • “everyone’s just going cool places with their shoes”
  • good one, Andy Shields!

Let’s ask your questions:

  • Tony: android or iOS?
  • send Tony some size 10.5 shoes
  • speedlights with wireless receivers? Yes.
  • Rode Broadcaster mics (sponsor us!)
  • ooooh no she didn’t

Portfolio review! Great work, pare down your photos, pare down your categories.

And back to me for some questions:

  • how to make still life photos more interesting
  • inadvertent Camera Raw smack talk!
  • mad Chelsea is the best Chelsea

Back to shoes:

  • “what? Invisible Dad? A movie circa 1980-something?”
  • lovely traditional Pakistani shoes
  • the rapture
  • “oh gosh, I’m gonna get an email”
  • “those shoes are about to whittle a duck for their grandchild”

Chit-Chat “this is the part of the show where we don’t… even care anymore”

  • podcast!
  • flat earthers. Ugh. Here’s a ten minute rant about why the earth isn’t flat. Seriously guys? Why is this even happening?
  • “so what you’re saying is I can’t trust clouds?”
  • crop factor. I hate you. Thanks for backing us up, filmmaker IQ.
  • “wreck’d!”
  • “good video! your hair looks fake! haha!”
  • People are real into Tony’s gray hair
  • “overall … nice boobs !!!”
  • “yes, I’m anatomically a woman, leave me alone”
  • “what about the Lightroom video convinced you of my heterosexuality?”
  • “Squarespace. They pay me to talk about what makes Tony look gay”

Now to another portfolio. Change up your format, separate your blog from your portfolio. Figure out your formatting, there are blank spaces and duplicates. What’s your goal with your portfolio?

Back to me:

  • people love being intimidated by Chelsea and me
  • “if he has a good incest-dar I’m in REAL trouble”
  • Canon 70-200 f/2.8 is Tony’s favorite lens
  • David Lachapelle
  • no, we don’t look at shutter actuations
  • how to shoot indoors in low light
  • are third party camera batteries worth the risk? No.
  • change your color space to CMKY and save for web with your Squarespace portfolio photos
  • what do you listen to when you edit? I will give you so many podcast recommendations if you want them. Hit me up.

Ok, back to your shoes:

Closing sentiments:

  • find Chelsea’s secret recordings online somewhere

And that’s our show! Next week show us a tree.

        can I only send in RAW filles ?

        • Leslie February 3, 2016 at 7:11 pm #

          Sorry I meant RAW to the live show

          • Mae February 4, 2016 at 9:12 am #

            Nope, you can only submit JPEG files.

    “Rhode Broadcaster mics (sponsor us!)”

    Siobhan, it’s Rode, or more specifically RØDE. 🙂

    P.S. I really like these recaps. Tony and Chelsea are great for a laugh and you pull stuff out to make me laugh all over again.

      Aha, fixed! Still don’t know how to do that fancy O though.

      • q5sys February 1, 2016 at 1:38 pm #

        Not sure if you use Windows, Mac, or Linux; but one of these ‘should’ work for you.

        If you’re on windows, hold down the alt key down and type 0216 on the number pad. My sister uses Mac and says she thinks it’s O key + [Option] and then use [Shift] if you want it uppercase. (Not sure what order you’d have to press them)

        If it doesn’t work, there should be some character/keyboard map program included with your OS that you can use to select the character.

        I’m a Linux guy myself, so I have no way to test that out for you. Sorry.

    You could knock it up a Gaelic notch with an accent on the “á”, thus:-


    Another great show and recap.

      I do in writing, too lazy to do it in typing 🙂

  4. Aidas January 31, 2016 at 3:51 pm #

    Hello 🙂 Please could you tell me where do you have to send pictures so they get reviewed on live show? thank you 🙂

    • q5sys February 1, 2016 at 1:29 pm # is the link to use. You can only submit during the show, but I’m unsure if its at ANY point during the live show… or they only accept submissions at the beginning of the show. I’m hoping for Siobhan will clarify if submissions can only be made at the start of the show or if they can be made at any point during the whole show.

        The best route to go for submissions is to be logged in here at before the show and preselect your image. Do everything but hit the submit button. Then, follow Tony on twitter and set up your account to alert you when he tweets. He tweets the moment the show starts. Once you get that notification, quickly hit the submit button. Works like a charm. 🙂

    Did I miss the project for next week or did you not give one ?

    • q5sys February 1, 2016 at 1:31 pm #

      They stated it in the show and its in the notes above. It’s the 5th line of the recap post.

      >Next week is “tree.” Singular? Who knows. “They tend to hang out in groups.”

      Also the last line says “Next week show us a tree” which I guess is a weirdly vague way of telling you what next weeks topic is.

  6. q5sys January 31, 2016 at 8:30 pm #

    Since the topic of the review next week is ‘Tree’, what exactly is the window for being able to submit it ‘during’ the show as the submit link says? Not sure when I’ll be getting home from work, so I was hoping for a bit more info on when the window for submissions is open.

      Only the hour or so while the show is live, which is 5pm EST. You can see the countdown at

      • q5sys February 3, 2016 at 12:22 pm #

        Thanks Siobhan, I didnt know if it was open the whole time, or just the first 10~15 minutes.
