Bert Hardy Documentary

At the black & white meeting this evening we will be taking a look at British photographer Bert Hardy. If you would like to know more of his story, the video on this page is a documentary narrated by Hardy himself, in which he gives an overview of his career. I found it quite fascinating.

Comparing Colour Spaces

Comparing sRGB, Adobe RGB and Euroscale Coated - YouTube - Google Chrome (69)German photographer, trainer and podcaster Chris Marquardt recently posted a video comparing several colour spaces. He uses software on his Mac that compares the spaces graphically and gives a good idea of how they differ. Unlike printed images the video gives a real feel for the three-dimensionality of colour spaces.

Watch the video here on Youtube.

DSLR Pinhole Photography

With the next Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day coming up on 24 April 2011 I thought some of you might want to try doing pinhole photography with your DSLR cameras. This video shows how.

There are many more resources demonstrating this on the Internet. Some take the technique further, showing how to make improved pinholes using thin aluminium or brass shim stock.
