    Poisson glad your Mom's doing OK.
    Back on subject...I enjoyed the plastic camera episode as I find those lomo cameras fascinating and they seem like fun. (I just gave my Friends' a lomo fisheye for her 8th b-day....plan is to show her how film is developed.)

    It doesn't matter how long you've been 'in to' photography, there's only so much you can learn if you always keep the mode dial set to "P" for 'Practicing'

    Forgot this was on so just watch it online. I actually enjoyed the latest one. Bit of a win for film, but really photography is the winner.

    Holga/Diana and lomo cameras generally have featured in some stunning art nouveau works overseas from people brought up on the foundations of traditional photography, particularly in the UK; I'm going to hunt down those who featured in The Age a few months back. I was surprised to see a fisheye model among them this episode and imagine it would be very, very difficult in indeed for somebody of limited practical experience to put that extreme perspective to good, creative use — it's bad enough in 35mm. I would have let the contestants loose in the city where the quirky perspectives and dark, film noir affect, not unlike old Polaroids or the latter day pinhole cameras, would be right at home in alleys, cul-de-sacs, among the glass towers and the Paris end of Collins Street. I agree with SMBooth that whatever we old hands think of the show, it is a win for photography, and the last episode was a solid and commendable plug for getting out there and rediscovering the art and science of film photography.

    Yes, I have to agree with you on that one Poisson. There are people out there who think film isn't even made any longer and this showed what film can do. Interesting side note. A professional photographer I follow on the social media posted a picture of himself 13 years ago (he was 20ish at the time of the photo) and he made a comment about how film "pops" with the colors, etc. This is a gentleman who uses the latest high-end Nikon DSLRs in his professional work so he has the best digital equipment available. Thought it was an interesting comment on his part.

    I just caught up with the wedding ep last night over dinner... When they intro'd the first lady, I thought she had some halfway decent nature photos, couldn't believe she managed to put the flash on backwards though! I've got Nikon flashes, but don't the Canon ones also have a little bump on the foot to stop you doing that? She must have been pretty heavy handed With it
