THE FUTURE OF PHOTOGRAPHY

Photography and image-making technology is reaching out in many new directions at once and at speed. Digital cameras no longer just provide easier ways to make traditional photos. Chris and Ade investigate emerging and future tech that will help us all make new and exciting photographs and images. Cameras, devices, software, hardware - we aim to cover all angles in the pursuit of The Future of Photography.

137 The Future of Memories (Photography and Minimalism)

01 . 07 . 2020

Notes

Minimalism is very popular right now. One mainstream interpretation of minimalism is to help clear your mind/life by having less physical stuff. But stuff has memories. Or does it? Does the stuff just trigger the memories? Could a photo of the thing do the same? Is a digital record of our most precious things the way forward? Picks of the week: Olympus, iPhone camera app silvertone filter, Gah! zine, Masao Yamamoto (2, 3), the Glucksman.

135 ISO Is Dead (And It’s Not Alone)

17 . 06 . 2020

Notes

Finish this sequence: 1, 2.8, 8, 22... Why do new photographers have to learn this stuff? More than one internet pundit has challenged the numbering systems behind photography recently. Here are two examples: 1, 2. Here at TFOP, we think they are all wrong. It's not about simplifying the current systems but more about creative decisions and mood and outcomes. So we propose a non-scientific approach based on what you see - shallow/deep, bright/dark, wide/close and let the equipment figure out the maths. What could be simpler than that? Picks of the week: Magnum photographer Bruce Gilden on COVID-19, cultivating mood in your photos, Pixii camera (1, 2), Creative assistance California-style.
