Photography podcast #108 features an Interview with fine art photographer John Meadows where we talk about the advantages of shooting on film. Although it’s true that film photography is slowly being replaced by digital, it continues to remain VERY popular with fine art photographers for a bunch of reasons. One of these reasons is the incredible quality of the cameras and lenses available to film photographers that can be purchased these days for peanuts.
In this podcast we talk about the advantages of shooting on film, film characteristics, buying film, developing your own film, printing your own images in a darkroom, the hybrid approach of using both film and digital and more.
During this phone interview recorded by Skype, the quality of my voice is mediocre and I apologize in advance for this — Luckily John Meadows’s voice sounds great.
