Fujifilm / SOOC

Let’s go live, they said – it’s gonna be fun, they said

If you watched yesterday’s live broadcast of SOOC, you will know that we hit a bit of a speed wobble (to put it mildly)…

Ritchie and I had a great time, fantastic conversations and awesome engagement from you, the audience. 

And then, just when we were in the middle of talking about the new Recipe of the Month (Kodak) Ektachrome 100SW, cyberspace decided that we’d had enough air time. The stream got interrupted and we fell off. Just. Like. That. That’s live-streaming for you. Expect the unexpected. Always. 

Please don’t let the title of this post mislead you into thinking that I don’t enjoy live broadcasts. I love our monthly shows – especially the fact that we can engage with you, the live audience. Nothing tops that. But when things don’t go as planned, it can be disappointing, and frustrating that there is no option for a re-take.

Last night, we felt like we let you guys down. We just left. We didn’t even say goodbye… We are truly sorry that we left you hanging like that.

Please accept our apologies for this technical glitch. 

But enough with the moping around! I have realised that actually, it is really kinda awesome that this happened. Why? Well, because it means that we get to go live again next week! Yup, that’s right. We are going to go live next Tuesday (same time, same place ;-)) to say what was left unsaid and unannounced when we got so rudely interrupted!

But like I said, up until minute 118, we had had a great time. We had fun with the trivia question in the pre-show and a great chat around the brand new X-T5 and some of its new features. I also shared the exciting news that the YouTube Community is live on my channel. (There are already a number of posts and polls published, so if you haven’t yet, head on over there and engage with me and connect with others in the community! And while you’re there, don’t forget to subscribe to my channel too!)

Of course, we also featured our “Recipes for Special Occasions” and focussed on iconic Black & White photography. In our Tip of the Day, we took a closer look at diffusion filters which sparked an interesting conversation as well. You can read more about this on Ritchie’s Blog here

So if you missed last night’s live broadcast, make sure to watch it:

Most importantly though, a big round of applause to each and everyone of you who submitted images in Fujichrome Sensia 100! The turnout was superb and you spoilt us with fantastic looking images.

If you haven’t already, be sure to check them all out here:

And for the rest of it… join us on Tuesday, 22 November at 18h30 for Part 2 of our broadcast. We’ve got something BIG to discuss with you, so I do hope that you’ll be there with us!
