#214 Celebrating solitude and street work in your own town

Are professional European photography gigs over for the Brits? Kev’s gotten rid of his bed bugs, we’re still guessing what an X-H2 may bring, we talk camera ergonomics including our feelings about the X100V, the ‘right time’ for using flash, embracing street photography in your own town, the kit you bought you wished you hadn’t and celebrate not having to calibrate lenses. The book of the week is Parker J. Pfister’s Of Solitude and we revisit the archive to hear from Shotkit’s Mark Condon.

#213 New to street? Advice and do you really need a blog?

Kev’s reboot has begun for ’22. We talk ‘must have’ shots at weddings, creative ruts, X-Trans sensor magic, back button focussing on the X100V, advice for new street photographers, left eye shooters, using exposure compensation and ask; “What is the difference in light gathering when considering lenses on a full frame camera versus APSC sensor camera?” Casey Orr returns for the concluding part of her chat with Kev.
