Is the DSLR dead? Are clickbait titles annoying? Yes, we bring you the questions that really matter! In our podcast discussion, Joe Cornish, David Ward and I briefly addressed the question of the role of the DSLR in modern landscape photography and the answer was a pretty boring, “probably not, but it will never be as dominant as it once was”. With the 5D series being discontinued, supposedly, it seems that mirrorless has finally won the ‘battle’.

Or it could be that Canon is doing a ‘New Coke’, and will reintroduce the 5D “Original Recipe” camera! As manufacturers are constantly trying to get us to spend money, sewing the idea that DSLR’s are bygones of a dying era is probably just another way of getting us to upgrade. Our suggestion? Don’t play the game. Buy a new camera if will make you happy definitely but don’t expect it to make a huge difference in your photographic output. You can make great pictures with pretty much any camera you want however much the manufacturers try to convince you differently. Personally, I enjoy the process of making photographs as much as the final results and if a camera can make that more enjoyable and I can afford it then I’ll buy one.

Noise Reduction

As noisy as our world is today, it is likely to get noisier still in the years ahead. Merchants of noise—those who profit from noise—are no longer just minor inconveniences, they are enormously powerful media machines. more

The Landscape Photography of Edweard Muybridge

It’s hard to write a short review of Muybridge’s life without sounding like one of Tom Sawyer’s exaggerated stories more

Escaping Oblivion

The emotional and psychological uplifting, the mental elevation you will feel when you find that true connection with your subject is far superior to the ephemeral appraisal of a well-constructed image that will be forgotten in the oblivion most photographers live in today. more

I simply find that taking on more difficult tasks helps me to find value in what I do. Particularly in the sub-genre, I am in of ‘classic grand landscape photography’. more

Close to home

I live in a place where the scenery makes it almost impossible to take a bad photograph and so, I finally did some stern self-admonishing and made a deliberate effort to try and see the village differently and shoot nearer home. more

One day ~ Time in landscape photography

That morning provided me with over two hours of snap shooting interrupted by some instances of contemplation. As a result, a series of 15 photos taken in a silence only broken by the stir of a distant breeze. more
