    Video about Contact Press Images in 1978

    Hi all,

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

    http://www.apug.org/forums/media.php?do=details&mid=107

    I found it on a spanish photography blog (http://lafotografiahoy.blogspot.com/). The video - 1978... so beware of the fashionable skirts - 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

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

    "The nineteenth century began by believing that what was reasonable was true, and it wound up by believing that what it saw a photograph of, was true." - William M. Ivins Jr.

    "I don't know, maybe we should disinvent color, and we could just shoot Black & White." - David Burnett in 1978
