BBC 4 Great Photography Challenge
« on: May 25, 2021, 08:02:25 PM »
Did anybody watch this last night? Just watched it on catch up and quite interesting. They get challenges and reviews from Rankin and spent the first episode shooting at Brighton beach then onto the New Forest with Chris Packham before a celeb shoot with Anna Friel. Not as precious as that Sky photography programme so i`ll stick with it.

No I didn't see it - was out to the Mom-in-laws delivering some shopping. Oh I live the high life!

I watched it. The first, Brighton, challenge I thought was unfair in that they were given the brief of "beach" and then marked down for photographing the beach rather than the town. As a Hove resident, I've got hundreds (probably) of Brighton photographs, some of which I actually like, but very few that I'd consider beach. Lacking rocks - just concrete and shingle - makes it tricky.

Overall, though, an interesting program.

After that opening paragraph, I might actually put some Brighton beach photos in the gallery.

Yes I thought that given a brief of "Beach"  the resulting criticism was unfair for some too.

I won't be watching it with Packham in it. He makes my skin crawl.

I think he was just a one off for that challenge. Better photographer than I gave him credit for looking at his stuff

I have to agree about Chris Packham. But he was only in one segment, and only the first program.

I have actually found it interesting, and speaking as a large format film photographer who loves Scotland, the final episode that has them using a large format camera to photograph landscape in Glen Coe should be even more interesting to me.
