Each Month Bart gathers a panel of keen photographers together to discuss a chosen topic for an hour. This show is all about the art and craft of photography, and while that will mean some discussion of the kinds of tools used to create photographs, it won't involve comparisons of one brand to another, or one model to another - this show aims to be totally brand agnostic. It's not about the tools, it's about creating images!

This month it's another solo show. Bart does his best to explain, at a physical level, how cameras work.

How we got to now is also important, so there's a liberal helping of history thrown in too.

Let's Talk Photography 81 - Beyond the Rule of Thirds

Podcast cover
Read more
Bart returns for another solo show, picking up where he left off last time. In the previous show Bart gave his take on the so-called 'Rule of Thirds' — useful as a guideline sometimes, but definitely not a universal rule! If the rule of thirds is only helpful some of the time, are there other guidelines photographers may fine helpful the rest of the time? Indeed there are, but they don't have catchy names like the Rule of Thirds, making them harder to remember. Bart tries to remedy this by getting creating and coining (hopefully) humours and hence memorable names for these nuggets of advice.
