110 — Crash course in black and white film photography

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #110 gives you a full on crash course in black and white film pho­tog­ra­phy in around 30 min­utes. Black and white film pho­tog­ra­phy is not at all dead. Many cre­ative pho­tog­ra­phers are get­ting their hands wet in a tra­di­tional dark­room.  If you’ve ever wanted to know what’s involved in black and white pho­tog­ra­phy, I take you through the entire process. We talk about film cam­eras, film, devel­op­ing film, print­ing con­tact sheets and print­ing a final print.

108 — Film Photography Rocks — Interview w/John Meadows

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.
