Do I have the energy for copyright infringement? Who inspires us photographically?

There’s a run-through on how a wedding day photographically works for newcomers to the genre, we talk about getting friendly with curves in Lightroom and Photoshop, the lens versus camera investment debate and the book of the week is the incredibly powerful Small Town Inertia by Jim Mortram.

Also this week, Bjorn Moerman is back for part 2 on aerial photography, the use of drones, how to shoot great pictures from the cabin and some inspirational books. A packed show!

Kev’s Book of the Week Small Twon Intertia by Jim Mortram

Jim Mortram lives near Dereham, a small town in Norfolk. Dereham is no different from thousands of other communities throughout Britain, where increasing numbers of people struggle to survive at a time of welfare cuts and failing health services. For over seven years, Jim has been photographing the lives of people in his community who, through physical and mental problems and a failing social security system, face isolation and loneliness in their daily lives. His work covers difficult subjects such as disability, addiction and self-harm, but is always with hope and dignity, focusing upon the strength and resilience of the people he photographs. Small Town Inertia is a remarkable body of work. A full-time carer for his mother, Jim is, like his subjects, unable to escape from the geographical confines of his hometown and his understanding and sympathy for his struggling neighbours is apparent in every photograph. This is a timely book; a firm rebuttal of damaging government welfare policies and their well-used government rhetoric that ‘we are all in this together’.
