In this episode the guys talk to John Aldred of DIYPhotography.net and youtube fame. John is one of those analog (and not so analog) industry figures that Ethan fealt like he should get to know, but he never expected the breadth and depth of Johns knowledge and stories about venomous snakes. (Hint: there’s a great one after the end music).
John writes about trends, products and techniques in the photo and video industry and about technology in general, and is a rare tech writer who will cover smaller and more niche products. It’s a little bit of a different perspective than our usual camera-building guests, which was a good thing. John has a deep love of tinkering and it really shows.
In this episode Nick shows Graham and Ethan the camera he has built from a baby speed graphic.
This is our first episode experimenting with recording video. The video is low quality webcam footage and screen shares, but we thought it might be a good starting point to show what we are talking to eachother about. If you are listening on a computer, we recommend watching the episode on Youtube instead.
