Several months after being mildly annoyed at the use of flashbulbs in the first series of 'Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries' on the ABC (not invented 'till 1930), I was emailed by the script supervisor of series 2 (who I did a media studies degree at uni with, and is of course a facebook friend) for photographic/period advice. Finally, an outlet for all that useless, family-annoying accumulated knowledge!!! I wrote the poor lass a VERY long email about small plate cameras (for one episode) and professional (natural light) portrait studios (for another episode). I felt really pleased/smug.
It'll be interesting to see whether they've taken any of this slightly over-enthusiastic research onboard when series 2 starts this Friday: http://www.abc.net.au/tv/programs/mi...der-mysteries/
