The Switch to Manual Guys are back in the saddle with this first episode of 2016. It just so happens that Antonio and Tom were both out of the country and both decided to travel with only one camera and one lens. Antonio brought his trusted Fuji X100T and Tom brought his Canon 5D Mark II with a 40mm f/2.8 pancake-style portrait lens. Listen in to see how restricting themselves in this way forced them both to get creative just a single lens and with the manual controls of the camera. And don’t miss the new feature as they both share a quote from a photographer they like and reflect on its meaning. In this episode Tom shares a quote by the great landscape photographer Ansel Adams while Antonio lifts up the urban street shooting master, Elliott Erwitt.
Oh, and some exciting news from Tom!
(Apologies for the street noise on Antonio’s side. He does live in New York so it’s sometimes unavoidable)
