Today Chris talks about liquid ISO – how the same film can be treated with different amounts of light and still produce results, most of the time more exciting results as if used at box speed. Sina Farhat is our guest, talking about doing aerial photography from a helicopter over Gothenburg for Wikimedia. Also: another chapter of C.J. Chilver’s book A Lesser Photographer.
Chris talks to to Philip Briggs (Author of the Bradt Guide to Ethiopia), Trevor Cole (world traveler and photographer extraordinaire) and Hans van der Haar (Dutch tour operator with a family in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia) about their views of Ethiopia. Some great surprises in this interview.
“..the other thing that people don’t expect and that blew my mind is that it’s a lush, green country. Addis Ababa gets twice as much rainfall as London or Amsterdam…” – Philip Briggs
Does a mirrorless full frame camera really save a lot of weight compared to a DSLR? Some manufacturers claim their cameras are half as heavy as their mirrored brethren. But how do things look when you take the weight of the lenses into account? Because here’s the secret: the size of the lens depends on the size of the sensor. So all things being the same, a full frame mirrorless camera will have the same size (and weight) lenses as a full frame DSLR.
An anonymous caller asks about photo organization.
Also: shooting on film is for hipsters, or is it? Some argue that shooting film presents you with tremendous learning opportunities. With opportunities that you can never have in the digital world, because you are too deep inside your comfort zone and learning is only possible at the edge. Some argue that that’s BS and that you should look forward and drop the ballast that is the past. Chris is in the first camp and he’s on the lookout for ways to emulate the analog learning experience for those who are in the latter camp.
Any suggestions on how to achieve that? Leave a comment.
