The Photography News Podcast ep 23 out now!

Posted on Apr 14, 2021

With the weather warming up and the natural world bursting into life, it’s the perfect time to capture great close-ups and macro. Yes, this episode, the Photography News team leaps into the undergrowth – though thankfully not in a Land of the Giants style, or we’d all be immediately swatted by a 50ft cat. But if you think that means a serene and scientific discussion on the merits of macro, think again. Sparks fly as the team clashes over what lenses you need, what techniques to use, and whether it’s actually worth shooting a fork.

Away from macro, Roger finally opens his wallet for a Fujifilm X-E4, Will gets out and about with the Canon EOS M50 Mark II and the Tamron 70-300mm, while Kingsley rediscovers the joys of hybrid shooting, with a stills and video project on his Nikon Z 7II.

Also this episode, we tackle the question of digital manipulation – how far should you push your image editing and where do the team each draw the line with their own work? Photo accessories are also up for discussion, so listen in to find out what gear we can’t do without.
