Welcome back after a long Christmas break. We’ve mostly had a DIY Christmas and New Year where we’re building a shed in our garden for a woodwork workshop and climbing wall. Once this is complete, we’ll be able to clear space in our first office/shed which will allow us to use it for photography-related activities. The main goals of this are to build our darkroom for developing and also for alternative printing. Furthermore, we’ll have a nice space to record video/audio content in for On Landscape.
The darkroom facility is the area I’m most excited about though, especially since I had a few days out with the large format camera before Christmas and I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed it. Being able to use film as an option, not a necessity, allows you to make the most of its idiosyncrasies and avoid its pitfalls.
Finally, we’ve noticed that the speed of the website has suffered a bit recently and also the mobile theme needs some work and we’ll be looking at this over the next month. It’s heartening that despite having a few problems, we continue to get overwhelmingly positive feedback for On Landscape so I’d like to give a huge thank you to everyone who subscribes and helps us keep the magazine alive and thriving in some turbulent times.

You can see the other talks on our YouTube channel or check in the back issues If you're on a mobile device the link you need is more
One of the photographers I follow on YouTube, stands out for his woodland photography; Simon Baxter. Being able to watch Simon discovering, composing and making his images, provides an invaluable insight into his thinking and I hope plants creative seeds in my photographic mind. more
To celebrate Mark's exhibition, we asked Mark to revisit his work with the Steamers and talk about how working in this way has affected his photography. more
My work is not a loud voice that reaches a lot of people, but a small whispering work that snuggles them one by one. I think that a delicate and small voice is just right for delivering peace with the voice of nature. more

What most people will want to know is: What’s the practical difference between these papers and will the resultant prints be the best they could possibly be? more
