    Hi all,

    I just added a nice short video to the APUG Video section:

    I found it on a spanish photography blog (http://lafotografiahoy.blogspot.com/). The video - 1978... so beware of the fashionable skirts :tongue: - is about the Contact Press Images photojournalistic agency, and shows some of the people at work.

    I especially liked the small discussion about the limited use of B&W photography in publications, and seeing the people comment on some just finished and published magazines.

    Enjoy the "wayback machine" feeling!

    Please note the video is actually only about 12 minutes, it seems they didn't cut off the 12 minute remaining black film on the roll in the digital version... A decision I actually quite like, come to think of it :wink:

    And another interesting item is this photo of David Burnett using a LF camera in what appears to be a Kerry campaign shoot:
