We don't get many TV shows about photography... except the occasional biography of someone famous. There's a show on Australian TV at the moment which is actually about taking photos - http://www.abc.net.au/tv/photofinish/ .
Each week three keen amateurs are thrown into a photographic task with an unfamiliar camera. The first week was portraiture, then landscape, last week was a wedding, and this week it's plastic film cameras (ABC1, 8pm on Thursday). You can watch the episodes here - http://www.abc.net.au/iview/#/series/11309 .
I'm enjoying watching how people overcome their nerves and the tight time constraints to come up with some wonderful images.
