The only time I thought to comment - (To myself ) was at each break when I saw that the camera they were showing in the advert had to be used under an umbrella when it was raining. Way to go Pentax.

If thats taking amazing pictures I feel like we're all safe

I think you might be being a little too harsh....if I remeber rightly the challenge was to also show "where they had come from" namely they were both leaving the teaching profession to persue other careers. So not a conventional portrait per se.

Howard

True, maybe it does show where they came from to where they are now but the way the 'pro' bigged them images up etc on the show was dyre. Still, good for a laugh I suppose
There was no feedback on making them better, only saying how good they were when clearly they are shizer

I agree entirely, the photos were, by and large terrible, especially the one taken at the ice cream van . Hopefully it was just a basic intro to the series and that it may get a little more technical, not holding my hopes out though. Next week is landscapes I think be interesting to see what "gems" are produced in that episode.

Just as I said Gareth, this programme is aimed at people who would normally just use a camera to snap family and friends and cut their heads off etc etc. and in that respect it did just what it said on the tin.

The show is intended to show people how to take better photographs and not teach Photographers how to do it

I finally managed to watch the wedding programme last night .

My thoughts

1) the tips [ ie watch what's going on and get the 'different' pictures that others don't ] were good - fine if you are not the main photographer .

2) these amateurs were supposed to be photographing the wedding - and they were the ones who were late - unforgiveable !! OK they managed to get to the Church in time to shoot the bride and groom AFTER the ceremony.

3) Both these amateurs seemed to be pretty happy with their cameras - and both will be photographing weddings in the future though , personally how the Matron of Honour hopes to manage to take photos while being the Matron of Honour , I have no idea .

Final mark for this episode - Could do better .
let the education continue

OK. Just watched the landscape programme. I actually thought the five minutes of advice at the start was really good.

The pictures produced weren't brilliant, but since I've never taken a decent landscape in my life, I cant criticise!

(If anyone in the UK wanbts to catch up you can get the shows here.

I've watched all three episodes so far. I wasn't too impressed with the landscape one. They might ave chosen a better landscape, and a guy dangling his feet over a building is hardly a landscape shot IMHO.


I'm glad it isn't technical though. It's the more artistic side of the game I want tips on.

Agree, that was a strange landscape shot but having vertigo it did make an impact !
