Welcome to the Photography News podcast! Every other week, editor Will Cheung and other members of the PN team will be sitting down to share our thoughts on the biggest and latest news stories from the world of photography, offer up technique and advice, and much more. If you’d like to get involved and have your say, email your questions, requests or stories to [email protected].
It’s a jam-packed episode this week as the Photography News team rattles through a variety of subjects. Kingsley kicks things off with some deep sky astrophotography after finding out it’s a tough subject to crack. He and Will are long exposure experts, though, and have some great advice on the subject.
Elsewhere, Roger is a die-hard shutter-release button focuser, but Will and Kingsley make the case for back-button focusing. There’s also talk of sunset shooting, lockdown lifting, camera modification and stills vs video, rounded out with this week’s reader questions.
The results of last week’s self-portrait challenge are in, and we think you’ll be thoroughly pleased with the results. With the possibility of freedom on the horizon, Will, Kingsley and Roger discuss the first places they’ll go and what they plan to shoot.
Our knowledgable trio also answer some reader questions, during which, they cover current camera collections, advise how best to approach photography competitions and share the best pieces of photographic wisdom they’ve ever heard.
This time out, the Photography News team drop yet more creative shooting ideas for you to enjoy at home, with flatlays, smoke patterns and self portraits all on the menu. And we even get outside for five minutes, while somehow evading arrest.
Your resident experts, Will Cheung, Roger Payne and Kingsley Singleton, also talk real-world macro photography, the perils of high-resolution sensors, photo-themed TV, films and books to inspire you – and nominate their best-ever SLRs and DSLRs, including iconic camera models from Nikon and Canon.
Plus there are special guest appearances from Annie Leibovitz, Don McCullin, Sebastião Salgado, and Alfred Hitchcock. Ansel Adams eat your heart out.
In episode two of The Photography News Podcast, Will, Kingsley and Roger return. On the menu this time: more at-home photography tips, including shooting star trails out of the window, product photography in the bath and a bit of flash advice.
Elsewhere, the trio talk sorting and selling old gear, photographing bubbles and oils and editor Will’s chopstick makes another surprise appearance.
In the inaugural episode of The Photography News Podcast, editor Will Cheung, contributing editor Kingsley Singleton and editorial director Roger Payne sit down to talk about indoor projects, favourite cameras of all time and more.
