The New Great Debates of Photography
/

There are a lot of questions this time, starting right off in the news section. We take a serious look at the supposed advantages of the new [Leica M10 Monochrom](https://uk.leica-camera.com/Photography/Leica-M/LEICA-M-MONOCHROM), a digital camera that can only shoot in black and white. ## Is it too easy to shoot models? Following the PetaPixel reposting of MissyMwac's [Tumbler think-piece about photographing models](https://missymwac.tumblr.com/post/190391721530/i-dont-want-to-photograph-models) (basically she prefers dealing with imprefections), Dan has some thoughts to get off his chest. Who's side will you come down on? [@MissyMwac](https://twitter.com/MissyMWAC) ## Caravaning Photographers We were directed to the story of Christian Schaffer by [@PixelVixenUK](http://instagram.com/pixelvixenuk), so thanks. Schaffer is an adventure photographer who has a habit of living in vans, and she's been showing off her latest acquisition in [this video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=ryPBLk90xEQ&feature=emb_logo) on YouTube. But is it all just a bit of a publicity stunt (yes, Dan and Adam are English, which makes cynicism part of our DNA). ## The Not The Gear Debate Kicks Off Adam proposes that an iPhone (or indeed any phone) can be an acceptable subsitute for a camera. Professional photographer Dan finds it difficult to agree. Believe us, this deate is going to run and run, but here we take our first swings. ## How Photographers Can Stay Fresh Some practical tips Dan has learend from day-to-day professional work to fight off burnout. # Blooper Was it even funny enough? Probably not!
