Another innovation born out of the lockdown is the PN podcast, which can be enjoyed for free via our website,Apple Podcasts,YouTube and Spotify. In episode four, the PN team revealed their self- portraits. EditorWill Cheung took two approaches, bright and dark; editorial director Rog Payne went all multiple exposure; and contributing editor Kingsley Singleton took his in the loo. The resulting debatemakes for a compelling listen and you can enjoy the final images on our website. We’d love our readers to contribute to future episodes.

We’re turning up the heat this summer, with a whole host of great content in themagazine and on our website to fire up your photography

IT HAS BEEN a challenging couple of months, but there is light at the end of the tunnel and lockdown restrictions are easing. Hopefully, they will continue to ease as we head towards high summer. Over our next three issues – starting with this one and running through June

and July – we’re delivering you a set list packed with headline acts including technique guides, interviews, gear advice and more. In each issue of the magazine, we’re hosting three ‘tents’ to get you in the festival spirit – photo kit, camera technique and video technique. Each month, you’ll find something new and exciting in the tents. In addition, you’ll be able to find even more festival content on our website and on The Photography News Podcast. (See right- hand story for more on our podcast.) This month, we’ve got mirrorless cameras appearing in the photo kit tent, long exposures in the camera technique tent and entry- level techniques in the video one. On our website, in the Summer Festival section, we’re releasing features on each of our core topics every week for the whole three months of the festival. It’s going to be fun and we hope you enjoy and learn from us over the coming months. So without any further ado, let the festival commence! •
