Sorry no sky here, but lots of chatter about it at work. It's a bit frustrating given all the crap they shove on the rest of the channels.Sorry US brethren, this is a UK TV programme question.
Anyone watching Master of Photography on Sky Arts?
Thoughts??? other than how amazing Isabella Rossellini is looking?
I hear you it is a less than optimal format and the brief was so vague on the episodes. The Berlin by night triptic challenge was poorly executed by the contestants IMHO. i doubt however whether I could have done anywhere near as well however.I started watching the first one and got fed up with the overly dramatised commentary about how critical even the smallest decisions were.....maybe it got better after the first one, but I'd lost interest by then. It just felt like 10 minutes of content stretched out to 45 minutes of TV.
Season 2 starting here on 25th of May. Already there is controversy. Souvid Datta one of the contestants has been caught plagiarising pictures. Google his name and you will see the news articles.This has just started airing in aus, have been watching it and wondering where they got the photographers from. Agree @kenoh the photos leave a lot to be desired. Does get me thinking what I'd have done differently in the shoots though, different angles, camera settings etc. I reckon have the amateurs here could give the selected "pros" a run for their money
For me it was that Simon Frederick guy just came across a bit dry and pretentious...I think maybe they made a mistake going with pro photogs. Needed a bit of banter to lighten it up...maybe a Greg Wallace typeMe too but The crazy italian guy is still on it and I thought he was needlessly harsh a lot of the time.
