Stuart has a question on compression. And he doesn’t mean JPG compression, but the visual compression that you get when using a telephoto lens. Is it really the focal length that does it? Or the angle of view? Or maybe the distance between the camera and the subject? Chris explores some of these thoughts. Special guest on today’s show is Allan Attridge who thanks to having two kids, has become an expert in children photography.
Chris and Allan (of The Two Hosers’ fame) dissect the rule of thirds and its implications on your photography. What many of you might see as a bland and boring topic that could be discussed within five minutes turns into an engaging discussion of over half an hour. Plenty of new insights here.
Chris has taken on the role of camera man in a movie project by Allan Attridge and the two sit down over some pumpkin pie to discuss the implications of shooting movie footage with a DSLR and how much permission you’ll need to film at a German train station.
Brandt wants to know if he should upgrade to the new Nikon D4, landscape photographer Ed has been volunteered by his wife to take candid shots at a valentines dinner and Allan Attridge is back talking with Chris about the making of the making of.
