No episode this week?

I hope nothing untoward has happened to any of the lads.


I should have put a post up here. Here's a link to the "announcement" on Facebook... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10156877366256995&set=gm.2172775086270701&type=3&theater&ifg=1

The short answer is that swapping my USB mic 10 minutes into the recording caused the software to only record one voice. I'm still trying to put this disaster behind me...


And there I was cursing because I hadn't had the chance to listen in till Friday.
I guess if it had to happen it's picked one of the better weeks from my point of view.

I can just about last till next week with a little Ade from the Sunny 16 backlog Smile

I'm now up to episode 107 of S16, but they keep on making new episodes so I wonder if I'll ever catch up!

To make it worse, Simon said he was interviewing on his tod. That's my favourite style of photography podcast, grr... Ben Smith (A small voice) and Ibarionex Perello (The candid frame) are two I try not to miss. I just listened to Perello interviewing Guy Webster. It was a chunk of pure Americana.

I was amazed at how quickly the time went, it was a good wide ranging chat I had with Cheyenne. We've postponed the second coming of Cheyenne for a couple weeks as time zones are playing havoc with getting more than two of us together at the same time. It was an option for doing another one on one, but I feel that the conversation will be stilted, so I plan to take a back seat when we get Cheyenne back next time.

Episode 37. Anil Mistry's Desert Island Lenses

Part two of the Anil Mistry experience, last time Anil told us about his last photo book and street shooting, but we ran out of time before we could talk about lenses. This time, we've sent him off to a desert island and we finally get to hear about some of his favourite lenses.

Thanks Simon Like 1 .

I enjoyed that episode. I like the 'desert island lenses' section. But did you have to start with an unashamed Nikon fanboy? Smile Lucky it was Mistry, as that guy could sell coal to Newcastle. I found myself nodding in agreement and have never set eyes on these lenses. I was also with him on the film/digital discussion. Sorry Simon.


And on the subject of soft focus portraits, Anil will no doubt know that he is in very good company. A great exponent of soft focus portraits was Julia Margaret Cameron, who, along with David Wynfield, virtually invented the style of shallow depth of focus for portraits that we see today so ubiquitously. So they knew a thing or two about portrait photography, and preferred soft, not sharp.


Cheers guys.

Another enjoyable episode that I, too enjoyed.
Always enjoy hearing Anil speak, and you get the best from him each time.
Thank you all.
Agree with Anil on the funky little Industar. I have the Industar 50 and like it a lot
Also I appreciate the reference links added after each show
Well done

Thank you both for your comments, even though Anil and Sciolist are wrong about accepting that Fuji film simulations are benign...

Anil is always great company and guaranteed to take a discussion into an interesting place.

Wait 'till they start providing on-board simulated ASA speed grain with each film sim! Then next stop is lens simulations Shocked The 5 year old Fuji I have already has some steps towards that built in I have noticed. Onboard Barrel, pincushion and colour shading.


It's relentless I tell you, relentless!

Maybe I can help. If the great unwashed were introduced to lens simulations, there would no doubt be an explosion in people wanting to try/own the real things, no? Time to nest away a few classics?


Have a better day, sir Very Happy
