Kev is luxuriating in Bunker Malmesbury, Neale is in the studio, though it’s business as usual with your questions. This week, is there any point to IBIS when films today are as ‘Shaky’ as an 80s pop star singing Green Door? We talk about taking on a part-time job if wedding work gets shifted again, whether we could return to a time which necessitates shooting with film cameras only, Clubhouse, the banning of street shooting and we debate fine art photography; what is it? The boys tempt a lifelong Nikon shooter with a shopping list, we sort out the black and white simulation options in-camera, and discuss perfect pancakes of the lens variety. The book of the week is Todd Hido’s ‘On Landscapes, Interiors and The Nude’ and our Friend of the Show interview is with Steve Vaughan.

Book of the week is On Landscapes, Interiors and The Nude Todd Hido
In The Photography Workshop Series, Aperture Foundation works with the world’s top photographers to distill their creative approaches, teachings, and insights on photography―offering the workshop experience in a book. Our goal is to inspire photographers of all levels who wish to improve their work, as well as readers interested in deepening their understanding of the art of photography. Each book features the creative process and core thinking of a photographer told in their own words and through pictures of their choosing. Each volume is introduced by a well-known student of the featured photographer. In this book, Todd Hido explores the genres of landscape, interior, and nude photography, with an emphasis on creating images from a personal perspective and with a sense of intimacy. Through words and photographs, he reveals insight into his own practice and discusses a wide range of creative issues, including mining one’s own memory and experience as inspiration; using light, texture, and detail for greater impact; exploring the narrative potential activated when sequencing images; and creating powerful stories with emotional weight and beauty.
