First, many thanks to ePHOTOzine for linking up with Apple and notifying us of this.

I was glued to my screen for the last hour, I found the question section at the end very interesting. I had one question chosen, asking Colin how he got over the language and literacy complications of requesting model release forms for people in his pictures. Picture libraries always request one for images showing people. He never gained them, but would ask his driver who could speak the local language to ask permission, and note that the agreement took place.

What did anyone else watching it make of it?

I'd also like to thank ePHOTOzine for the opportunity to listen to one of my favourite photographers. Some interesting comments, especially on the merits of digital and film.

From what I understood he still thought that for lens properties the larger film camera had an advantage, and for working in remote locations then film has the advantage of not being limitted to batteries etc.

I thought it was an interesting talk so thanks to EPz but I am not certain it did anything for the Apple product. Time to scour Ebay for that large format film camera.

All you need is a carbon fibre tripod, two lenses and a decent film body. Oh and a bit of ability Smile But that is not fair, you have to take it in context with his comments on how to approach photography and what he wants to do.

It was well worth listening to for his advice on becoming a professional landscape/travel photographer too.

I enjoyed the talk, for the most part, but found colin's answer to most of the questions to be rambling almost verging at times on the incoherant!
I've always been an admirer of colin's work and still am but I should have remembered from the last time I saw him speak that he's not the worlds greatest orator. A man with a great passion for what he does and truly inspirational though.
The one thing it has done though is to emphasize the point that I really should take the linhof with me in march when I head to glencoe for a week.

I only saw the first 5 minutes. I was really enjoying it. But connection got lost & I gave up after 30 minutes. Thank BT Ireland for the so called broadband & that doesn't come cheaply as well.

I tried to watch it, but had 5 mins of no sound (speakers all work, quicktime's own test said they were working fine, but nothing doing Sad ) So I gave up.

My sound and video was ok, although a few times Colin's speech got a little out of sync.

That was probably more to do with jet lag and copious amounts of duty free scotch! Wink
