    Desert Island Cameras #1

    Desert Island Cameras #1

    Which 10 photography-related items would you take to a desert island? This is the question I asked Theo Panagopoulos recently.
    Theo is a talented Sydney photographer, one of the hosts of the Camerosity podcast, and also has his own excellent camera review blog photothinking.com. It was wonderful to hear his 10 items as we progressed through our chat - not surpisingly his Mamiya 7 featured heavily in the mix!
    Of course my idea for Desert Island Cameras is a rip off of the long running BBC radio Desert Island Discs.
    Desert Island Camera rules
    Here are the rules for this segment:
    * You can bring 10 items to the island.
    * The first 8 items you can either be cameras or films. You could choose 4 cameras and 4 films, 7 camerass and 1 film, 1 camera and 7 films, or any other combination.
    * For every camera you bring, you must also bring film for it. That is, if you bring an SX-70 as item 1, you will also need to bring SX-70 film as item 2.
    * You must have owned or used all cameras and films you mention. No dream or white whale cameras here.
    * The 9th slot is for a photography-related book.
    * The 10th and final slot is a luxury photography item not covered by the above.

    2 Old Camera Guys Talk Film Photography

    2 Old Camera Guys Talk Film Photography

    What's the best brand new bang for buck film camera you can buy today?
    This was just one of many questions I had the pleasure of asking Dave Mihaly The Old Camera Guy.
    We start off by discussing how Dave's film photography channel has grown - almost 300 videos and over 1 million views!
    We then talk about best frugal choices in 2024 including:
    * Best bang for your buck brand new camera you can buy today
    * Best value film you can buy today
    * Second hand - best P&S recommend
    * Second hand - SLR recommend.
    Other topics we talk about include the Frugal Film Project, the new Pentax camera, family in photography, shooting digital and drones, and Super 8.
    To finish off, I quiz Dave to see if he can recognise film he's shot from his YouTube thumbnails. If you’d like to play along for that segment, check out the YouTube version of this conversation.

    Art and photography

    Art and photography

    In recent months I’ve become more interested in art. I’ve bought a gouache set, some watercolour pencils, and found a few ‘how to draw’ books we had at home. So far there’s very little art being produced. Needing inspiration, I turned to 3 photography friends who are also talented artists.
    Matt Jones, Matthew Joseph, and Bill Thoo often share their artwork with others in a photography group chat. I’ve been amazed and inspired by their art this year. Matthew and Bill have produced beautiful works based on their travels. Matt is a prolific artist in his home studio in Thailand, often creating works from photos others post in the chat.
    Some of the topics of our conversation include:
    * Which came first for you? Art or photography?* Show and tell 2-3 pieces of art you're proud of* How has art affected or enhanced your photography?* Does making art come at the expense of photography?
    I hope you find this conversation as interesting as I did. It has renewed my interest in pursuing some form of art - if for no other reason than to get Mrs Murray off my back about my new found supply of neglected art materials!

Fun and educational podcast on analog cameras and film

I’m really enjoying listening to Matt’s relaxed and informative podcasts. Matt has a great voice and his enthusiasm for his subjects is infectious. I’ve listened to his podcasts on a range of topics from historical cameras to interesting and unusual film stocks, and found them all very enjoyable. Keep up the great work Matt!
