#215 IBIS for an X-Pro4? And Shiny Happy photographer
1:17:31If you’re a cricket fan, this show comes with a health warning! Today we talk 365s, choosing film simulations according to light, website copywriting, choosing between the X-T3 and X-T4 and we ponder over IBIS in an X-Pro4? Also, is the X-H1 a capable sports camera, will a photographic ban on mothers nursing their babies bring us ever closer to ’street’ censorship, what is percussion testing within a camera body and how do I buff out a scratch on my lens? Kev’s book of the week is Michael Stipe’s latest photography book and Chris Floyd is our archive interview.
#214 Celebrating solitude and street work in your own town
1:00:34Are 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?
1:11:51Kev’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.
#212 Exploring questions with your camera and a left eyed X-Pro?
1:07:25The last one of the year as we take a short break over the holiday period. We’re musing over cameras for left eyed shooters, revisiting focusing techniques, pricing a 'day in the life’ photo business, Kev shares his plans for ’22 and we ask, “Could you shoot a wedding just with zooms?” We talk about photography start-ups, stolen library owned photobooks, have some jpeg editing tips, Covid passes at weddings and the most popular colour for an X100 range camera. Our guest is documentary photographer Casey Orr.
#211 "Get out the camera and take the picture" + seeing in the dark with the 50mm f1
1:17:07Who ate all the mince pies and why is Kev favouring the new 50mm f1 lens for his wedding work? We talk about working with videographers in a documentary setting and dancing whilst making your pictures! We discuss providing pictures to bereaved families, stepping back to manual focus times, making stories locally and ask, are you proud of what you shoot? Book of the week is Asim Khan’s Scenes from a World in Lockdown and we hear from Deanna Dikeman on her book Leaving and Waving.
#210 X-Pro or X-T? And the Twitterstorm!
1:02:52This week we talk about photofilms and the various different versions that Kev and Neale present to clients, how to wrangle with back button focus, there’s a Twitterstorm brewing, X-Pro v X-T and camera choice dilemmas, combining footage from drones and an X-H1 in a video edit, the wonderful new 18mm lens and what to do when your mails just seem to go to peoples’ spam boxes! Polly Rusyn is back to talk about street photography too.
#209 Seeing theatre in your street photography & what makes a great image?
1:12:20Kev is under the weather but the test came back clean so he’s fit to fly on the podcast and Neale has unleashed (can you see what we did there) his own studio dog. We muse over photographers that can’t or won’t embrace innovation, talk cropping, discuss the amount of images returned to clients from an edit, how we send images to clients, whether it’s time to finally drop the full frame lens equivalent references, ask what makes an image great and other stories. Our guest is street photographer and FujiFilm ambassador Polly Rusyn.
#208 Celebrating Tom Stoddart & Influencers versus Photographers
1:02:24This week we pay our respects to a giant of photojournalism, Tom Stoddart who passed away last week. On the show, Kev is off to a wedding with the Archbishop!
