The boys are reunited after months of Skype separation, in the studio! This week, embracing colour after a life presenting black and whites, the difference between recipes and presets, building your own look and capturing the moment whilst being IN the moment; family pictures. Boxgate continues and Neale finds a pile of X-H1 boxes that practically match his height, we talk third party lenses, assisting the greats, whether we still need websites in this Instagram world, the catharsis of photography during Covid, getting back on the professional bike to shoot weddings after so much time out and the 70-300mm lens; do I need it? Book of the week is, ‘The year the world stood still’ by Chris O’sullivan and Dan Milnor talks more about self publishing to us.
Today a package arrives from Denmark, the boys ponder whether Voigtlander film lenses work well with the GFX system, what the best microphone for making YouTube video voice overs is and how good the files for video are SOOC from the GFX camera Kev owns. We talk about workflow, what we’d like from the X-Pro4 or new XH camera, the great monochrome camera debate, Kev’s camera of the year and Flippy Screen Gate; just what is it people don’t like about the flippy screen? Book of the week is The Photographers on Photography by Henry Carroll and our guest is photographer and book self-publisher Dan Milnor.
