#04 Little & Large Format Vintage Photography With Rachel Brewster-Wright

We are joined by the nicest, sunniest and loveliest Rachel Brewster-Wright. Most will know Rachel as the nicest member of the Sunny16 Podcast and perhaps for her day job as owner of Little Vintage Photography. You may not know that Rachel has been drawn to Large Format photography for a while and now is the proud owner of two, yes two Chroma 5x4 cameras. We eventually steer Rachel around to talking a bit about Large Format but not before we cover loads of ground about her background, influences and real passion for all things analogue and educational. The interview is cut short a bit with some live drama – you’ll have to listen to find out (Everything is fine by the way it sounded more dramatic than it was so don’t worry). Links and references arising from the discussions; Following a successful Kickstarter campaign the wonderful Chroma Camera (as held by Simon and me at the Photography Show) http://chroma.camera/ Cyanotype Pioneer and friend Fox Talbot Anna Atkins (she’s dead now but you can find out all about here here) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Atkins Rachel appeared at this year’s Photography Show in Birmingham (UK) with Historian Rose Teanby. www.roseteanbyphotography.co.uk Anna Atkins work can be viewed in this beautiful book https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sun-Gardens-Cyanotypes-Anna-Atkins/dp/3791357980/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?keywords=sun+garden+cyanotypes&qid=1555140254&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmrnull Rachel can be found most weeks as one third of the Sunny 16 Podcast and often keeping Graeme in check on the Backing Paper Podcast – both accessible via their website https://sunny16podcast.com/ Check out all that Rachel does: https://www.instagram.com/littlevintagephotography/ On Twitter https://twitter.com/VintagePhotoCo And her website which I think is being updated https://www.littlevintagephotography.co.uk/ LFPP links - https://largeformatphotographypodcast.podbean.com/ ko-fi.com/largeformatphotographypodcast You can join in the fun at our Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2296599290564807/ Get Twitter updates for the show from Andrew – https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper Or from Simon – https://twitter.com/simonfor Email feedback, ideas and questions for the podcast largeformatphotographypodcast@gmail.com Podcast Hosts Social Media presence Simon Forster www.classiclensespodcast.com www.simonforsterphotographic.co.uk https://stores.ebay.co.uk/itsfozzyphotography https://www.flickr.com/photos/125323761@N07/ https://www.facebook.com/SimonForsterPhotographic/ https://www.instagram.com/simonforsterphotographic/ https://twitter.com/SimonFor Andrew Bartram https://anchor.fm/thelenslesspodcast https://andrewbartram.wordpress.com https://www.instagram.com/warboyssnapper https://www.imstagram.com/warboyssnapper_pinholes https://www.flickr.com/photos/warboyssnapper/ https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper

#21 Intrepid To The Max!

After 20 very well received shows since we began this podcast last year, for some time we considered retiring from the fame, stardom and wealth that this has brought us. I convinced Simon that we should carry on at least through 2020 as there are many more brilliant guests we can have on the show. So we start 2020 with an industry big hitter Max Grew from Intrepid Camera. Since the successful Kickstarter in 2014 Max and his growing team have shipped over 5,000 brand new cameras – it’s a statistic we find staggering and really encouraging in this hi tech world. So thanks to Max for taking the time to bring us up to date with all that’s happening with you – exciting times ahead. Things we chatted about on the show Max uses the Brighton Community Darkroom to print his work – it looks to be a brilliant resource if you are in the area – check out their website http://brightondarkroom.org.uk/ Andrew mentioned DeVere as they are also in Brighton – listen to episode 19 or head over to their website for enlargers, lenses and other spares – or just some sound advice from John Boyce http://odyssey-sales.co.uk/ Andrew referenced Ansel Adam’s book “The Camera” as a superb reference for all things Large Format which he bought back in the 1980s it is still in print and reasonably priced https://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Photo-Camera-Ansel-Adams/dp/0821221841/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=ansel+adams+the+camera&qid=1578647837&sr=8-1 If you live anywhere near Stoke On Trent then why not get in touch with Simon and coma along to the 6 Towns Darkroom on a Tuesday evening You know how to find him Andrew mentioned the Stearman Press 8x10 daylight developing tank which appears in the Firstcall Photogaphic Catalogue – this is likely to be imported by Morco Photographic and both suppliers are really worth checking out https://www.firstcall-photographic.co.uk/ https://www.morco.uk.com/ Excitement is building at the prospect of the imminent UK availability of Pictoriographica dry plates – we think at Analogue Wonderland https://www.pictoriographica.com/online-shop.html https://analoguewonderland.co.uk/ and of course the successful KickStarter to deliver brand new dry plate holders – the ChromaGraphica will be available soon https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dryplateholder/the-chromagraphica-double-dry-plate-holder LFPP links - https://largeformatphotographypodcast.podbean.com/ ko-fi.com/largeformatphotographypodcast You can join in the fun at our Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2296599290564807/ Get Twitter updates for the show from Andrew – https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper Or from Simon – https://twitter.com/simonfor Email feedback, ideas and questions for the podcast largeformatphotographypodcast@gmail.com Podcast Hosts Social Media presence Simon Forster www.classiclensespodcast.com www.simonforsterphotographic.co.uk https://stores.ebay.co.uk/itsfozzyphotography https://www.flickr.com/photos/125323761@N07/ https://www.facebook.com/SimonForsterPhotographic/ https://www.instagram.com/simonforsterphotographic/ https://twitter.com/SimonFor Andrew Bartram https://anchor.fm/thelenslesspodcast https://andrewbartram.wordpress.com https://www.instagram.com/warboyssnapper https://www.imstagram.com/warboyssnapper_pinholes https://www.flickr.com/photos/warboyssnapper/ https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper

The super wonderful YouTube extraordinaire Ben Horne joins us for a nice long fireside chat to tell us all about his trips to Death Valley, Zion National Park and The Colorado Plateau (did we speak about that last one …mmm) So listen in as Ben shares tales of breaking cameras, rabbits pretending to me mountain lions, press ups, discarded nappies (diapers if you will), mylar balloons, reflected light, slide film and much, much more – we try to get him to explain the Scheimpflug principle but he dodges that particular bullet.

#10 In The Zone With Richard Pickup

We chat this week by all-round good egg Richard Pickup Richard is a teacher, street photographer and user of an 8x10 Intrepid camera using it for, amongst other things, making portraits and contact prints. Richard has a great web site which is full of useful stuff for film enthusiasts. As he recently published a blog all about the zone system we thought it would be a good idea to spend some time talking about this often misunderstood subject ……..and of course Simon asks every guest we have about it so rather like the monkey / typewriter / Shakespeare thing eventually he will understand it. Links and references arising from the discussions: Andrew again recommended two books by Bruce Barnbaum to help with the whole previsualisation thing https://read.amazon.co.uk/kp/embed?asin=B00VB46KLC&preview=newtab&linkCode=kpe&ref_=cm_sw_r_kb_dp_GGljDbZF5MBTR https://www.amazon.co.uk/Art-Photography-2nd-Personal-Expression/dp/1681982102/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=bruce+barnbaum&qid=1562687592&s=gateway&sr=8-1 We discussed the work of John Blakemore and his approach to the zone system – here is a great book https://www.amazon.co.uk/Blakemores-Black-White-Photography-Workshop/dp/0715317210/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=john+blakemore&qid=1564130083&s=gateway&sr=8-1 At some point we discussed night photography and how the zone system works here – two twitter folks who are night photography fans and exponents are Sandeep - https://twitter.com/Givemeabiscuit And Ian Nutt https://barnabynutt.com/ For some reason we mentioned The Hypersensitive Photographer’s Podcast https://anchor.fm/hypersensitive Richard learnt a lot from Michael Freemans books, in particular https://www.amazon.co.uk/Photographers-Eye-Understand-Composition-Photography/dp/1781577307/ref=sr_1_2?hvadid=3171150263&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvqmt=e&keywords=michael+freeman+the+photographers+eye&qid=1564130419&s=gateway&sr=8-2 On a similar theme https://www.amazon.co.uk/Photographers-Eye-John-Szarkowski/dp/087070527X/ref=sr_1_3?hvadid=3171150263&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvqmt=e&keywords=michael+freeman+the+photographers+eye&qid=1564130490&s=gateway&sr=8-3 We gave shout outs to Isabel Curdes https://isabelcurdes.com/ Ruth Storey https://www.instagram.com/roo_roo_s/?hl=en Richard’s links https://www.richardpickup.com/ https://twitter.com/richard_pickup LFPP links - https://largeformatphotographypodcast.podbean.com/ ko-fi.com/largeformatphotographypodcast You can join in the fun at our Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2296599290564807/ Get Twitter updates for the show from Andrew – https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper Or from Simon – https://twitter.com/simonfor Email feedback, ideas and questions for the podcast largeformatphotographypodcast@gmail.com Podcast Hosts Social Media presence Simon Forster www.classiclensespodcast.com www.simonforsterphotographic.co.uk https://stores.ebay.co.uk/itsfozzyphotography https://www.flickr.com/photos/125323761@N07/ https://www.facebook.com/SimonForsterPhotographic/ https://www.instagram.com/simonforsterphotographic/ https://twitter.com/SimonFor Andrew Bartram https://anchor.fm/thelenslesspodcast https://andrewbartram.wordpress.com https://www.instagram.com/warboyssnapper https://www.imstagram.com/warboyssnapper_pinholes https://www.flickr.com/photos/warboyssnapper/ https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper

#19 An Odyssey with John Boyce (Mr Devere)

#19 An Odyssey with John Boyce (Mr De Vere) Just Simon and Andrew “live in the studio” this week with a recorded interview that Andrew did with John Boyce owner of Odyssey De Vere (Large format enlargers if you are unfamiliar). Despite the lack of “live” guest we still manage to ramble on for a fair while so hang in there till you get to the inaugural LFPP Outside Broadcast (OK it will get better). Thanks to Neil Piper for the loan of his digital recorder, it’s probably something we ought to get for future use as the chat was a lot of fun. Things we chatted about on the show Andrew talked about his mini exhibition of Fenland prints and how he hopes to use liquid emulsion on watercolour paper for this – here are some useful links and a note of the book Andrew spoke about https://www.theimagingwarehouse.com/Products/Liquid-Photo-Emulsion/ARBM33 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Silver-Gelatin-Liquid-Photographic-Emulsions/dp/1902538153 We chatted about Bromoil process and Simon reference a series of YouTube videos https://www.youtube.com/user/Bromoil/featured Simon and his pals at the Six Towns Darkroom Club in Stoke on Trent were recently gifted some paper and it included some lovely Oriental Seagull FB paper which is no longer available. This led on to a discussion about Lith Printing and Andrew ran through the basic process and mentioned a few helpful sites The Master who is Tim Rudman http://www.timrudman.com/ Get on Tim’s mailing list for news about current “lithable” papers http://www.timrudman.com/mailing_list The go-to site for lith materials and info (and Bromoil by the way) is Wolfgang Moersch https://www.moersch-photochemie.de/content/shop/negativ/36/lang:en To see beautiful examples of Wolfgang’s work check out his Flikr page https://www.flickr.com/photos/wolfgang_moersch/ We had some emails Joachim Gross sent links to the company in Germany where he bought his lovely wooden tripod https://www.berlebach.de/?bereich=details&id=266&sprache=english and https://www.berlebach.de/?sprache=english Simon mentioned he was given a Paterson Orbital print processor and Andrew mentioned the daylight tray being developed by Stearman Press https://shop.stearmanpress.com/blogs/news/the-sp-8x10-status Eventually…….. we lead in to just under an hour of discussion with John Boyce of Odyssey Devere – Now Simon refused to edit this to cover up for Andrew’s ineptness but hang in there as John is a lovely guy and we had a wonderful chat John’s Link http://odyssey-sales.co.uk/ LFPP links - https://largeformatphotographypodcast.podbean.com/ ko-fi.com/largeformatphotographypodcast You can join in the fun at our Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2296599290564807/ Get Twitter updates for the show from Andrew – https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper Or from Simon – https://twitter.com/simonfor Email feedback, ideas and questions for the podcast largeformatphotographypodcast@gmail.com Podcast Hosts Social Media presence Simon Forster www.classiclensespodcast.com www.simonforsterphotographic.co.uk https://stores.ebay.co.uk/itsfozzyphotography https://www.flickr.com/photos/125323761@N07/ https://www.facebook.com/SimonForsterPhotographic/ https://www.instagram.com/simonforsterphotographic/ https://twitter.com/SimonFor Andrew Bartram https://anchor.fm/thelenslesspodcast https://andrewbartram.wordpress.com https://www.instagram.com/warboyssnapper https://www.imstagram.com/warboyssnapper_pinholes https://www.flickr.com/photos/warboyssnapper/ https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper

Large Format Pugilist and all round clever person Wayne Setser joined us to talk about camera movements (ably demonstrated by Andrew and a beer mat), Stairways to nowhere, the joys of Caffenol and using one film, lovely wooden cameras and lots more…oh and Simon gets to talk about lenses. Links and references arising from the discussions: We discussed ID78 as a warmtone paper developer and Wayne suggested Steve Anchell’s book as a useful reference for the recipe and for all things “home cooking” https://www.amazon.co.uk/Darkroom-Cookbook-Alternative-Process-Photography/dp/1138959189/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=the+darkroom+cookbook&qid=1561747916&s=gateway&sr=8-1 Wayne uses just FP4 and advocates really getting to know a film and not joining the “film of the Month” club – he develops all his film in Caffenol CL – for this recipe and all things caffenol down load the Caffenol Cookbook onto your fruit based device http://caffenol-cookbook.com/ Simon gave Nick Lyle a shout out for helping him fit a back to something or other – Nick can be found on the awesome Home Made Camera Podcast http://homemadecamera.com/ We gave a shout out to Greg Obst for losing this week’s Podcast Guest fight – you’ll be on real soon Greg http://greggobst.com/ Wayne’s links https://www.facebook.com/PhotoByWayneSetser/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/wsetser/ LFPP links - https://largeformatphotographypodcast.podbean.com/ ko-fi.com/largeformatphotographypodcast You can join in the fun at our Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2296599290564807/ Get Twitter updates for the show from Andrew – https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper Or from Simon – https://twitter.com/simonfor Email feedback, ideas and questions for the podcast largeformatphotographypodcast@gmail.com Podcast Hosts Social Media presence Simon Forster www.classiclensespodcast.com www.simonforsterphotographic.co.uk https://stores.ebay.co.uk/itsfozzyphotography https://www.flickr.com/photos/125323761@N07/ https://www.facebook.com/SimonForsterPhotographic/ https://www.instagram.com/simonforsterphotographic/ https://twitter.com/SimonFor Andrew Bartram https://anchor.fm/thelenslesspodcast https://andrewbartram.wordpress.com https://www.instagram.com/warboyssnapper https://www.imstagram.com/warboyssnapper_pinholes https://www.flickr.com/photos/warboyssnapper/ https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper

#14 Sandeha Lynch Puts Things Into Perspective

We have been trying to get Sandeha on the show for ages, it took a meal and a beer in a dodgy pub in Wales to finally convince him it was a good idea to come and chat with us. Andrew has known Sandeha since the days when they both hung out on the Fiim and Darkroom User (FADU) forum, this is still going strong and can be found in the link below.

#12 ChromaGraphica With Steve Lloyd And Jason Lane

Another zone system free show as Simon and Andrew channel their inner talk show hosts as they quiz guests who, to be frank are only on the show to sell stuff. Mercenary guests Jason Lane and Steve Lloyd are on the verge of completing “ChromaGraphica” a Kickstarter campaign for brand new, injection moulded dry plate holders. We talk to Steve about his back story and the awesome Chroma Camera that will very shortly be on sale to all and sundry and then Jason tells us all about Pictoriographica, his dry plate business – the history, the process, hints and tips and why we should all be out there using dry plates (film is dead folks). Links and references arising from the discussions: We discussed storage methods for dry plates, Andrew uses Secol in the UK for all things archival https://www.secol.co.uk/products/slides__films_and_negatives_stor/4_flap_folders_and_plain_sheets Jason plugged “Dry Plate Photographers” Facebook Group – Andrew has joined it and very informative it is too https://www.facebook.com/groups/1428512583937923/ Jason referenced the work of Denise Ross who wrote about her dry plate experience on her great “light farm” site http://www.thelightfarm.com/ Ron Mowrey, former Kodak emulsion engineer – check out a youtube video and go from there https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4q0Ryh9pBE Andrew mentioned a youtube video by “Planetrandy” (yes I know) who uses a large wooden wetplate camera and Jasons plates https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uIVOOfVys4 Steve’s links Check out his website for Chroma Camera http://chroma.camera/ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/chromacamera/ Jason’s links His website is the place to go for sales, hints and tips https://www.pictoriographica.com/ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/pictoriographica/ LFPP links - https://largeformatphotographypodcast.podbean.com/ ko-fi.com/largeformatphotographypodcast You can join in the fun at our Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2296599290564807/ Get Twitter updates for the show from Andrew – https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper Or from Simon – https://twitter.com/simonfor Email feedback, ideas and questions for the podcast largeformatphotographypodcast@gmail.com Podcast Hosts Social Media presence Simon Forster www.classiclensespodcast.com www.simonforsterphotographic.co.uk https://stores.ebay.co.uk/itsfozzyphotography https://www.flickr.com/photos/125323761@N07/ https://www.facebook.com/SimonForsterPhotographic/ https://www.instagram.com/simonforsterphotographic/ https://twitter.com/SimonFor Andrew Bartram https://anchor.fm/thelenslesspodcast https://andrewbartram.wordpress.com https://www.instagram.com/warboyssnapper https://www.imstagram.com/warboyssnapper_pinholes https://www.flickr.com/photos/warboyssnapper/ https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper

#09 Residual Energy And X-Ray Film With Gregg Obst

True to our word we get last week’s runner up on the show in the form of Greg Obst – Greg proves to be another “great value” guest leaving us both inspired fired up to get out there and make pictures. The “why” of photography is a bit of a running theme of ours and makes a refreshing change from too much “gear talk” – we love that too don’t get me wrong but what goes on in a large format photographers hear…well, heck who wouldn’t be interested in that? (no need to answer it was rhetorical). Greg talks about his love of photographing places that ooze with what we might call “a sense of place” , lingering energy and a need to make a picture that reflects how he feels about a place. Sometimes no pictures are taken at all. Wonderful stuff Greg we enjoyed it immensely. Links and references arising from the discussions: Greg and Andrew talk about using xray film and in particular Greg’s preferred single sided Ektascan B/RA made by medical imagers Carestream – if you live in the USA its great value still but will only get more expensive we think. https://www.zzmedical.com/8x10-in-carestream-kodak-ektascan-b-ra-single-emulsion-video-film.html Greg mentioned “The Large Format Photography Forum” as a good place to go for all things X ray film (and more related) https://www.largeformatphotography.info/forum/ When Greg talks at length about places that carry a sense of residual energy, especially where bad things have happened we were reminded of Eric Swanger’s work – check it out here. https://consofcart.wordpress.com/ Two notable influencers for Greg are Fredrick Evans and Bruce Barnbaum https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_H._Evans Andrew recommended two books by Bruce and a YouTube video https://read.amazon.co.uk/kp/embed?asin=B00VB46KLC&preview=newtab&linkCode=kpe&ref_=cm_sw_r_kb_dp_GGljDbZF5MBTR https://www.amazon.co.uk/Art-Photography-2nd-Personal-Expression/dp/1681982102/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=bruce+barnbaum&qid=1562687592&s=gateway&sr=8-1 https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=bruce+barnbaum+youtube&view=detail&mid=5DD29069EAE1E4D1EF725DD29069EAE1E4D1EF72&FORM=VIRE Greg’s links http://greggobst.com/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/greggobst LFPP links - https://largeformatphotographypodcast.podbean.com/ ko-fi.com/largeformatphotographypodcast You can join in the fun at our Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/2296599290564807/ Get Twitter updates for the show from Andrew – https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper Or from Simon – https://twitter.com/simonfor Email feedback, ideas and questions for the podcast largeformatphotographypodcast@gmail.com Podcast Hosts Social Media presence Simon Forster www.classiclensespodcast.com www.simonforsterphotographic.co.uk https://stores.ebay.co.uk/itsfozzyphotography https://www.flickr.com/photos/125323761@N07/ https://www.facebook.com/SimonForsterPhotographic/ https://www.instagram.com/simonforsterphotographic/ https://twitter.com/SimonFor Andrew Bartram https://anchor.fm/thelenslesspodcast https://andrewbartram.wordpress.com https://www.instagram.com/warboyssnapper https://www.imstagram.com/warboyssnapper_pinholes https://www.flickr.com/photos/warboyssnapper/ https://twitter.com/warboyssnapper

#22 Bill Schwab, Photostock, LFPP Festival In The Forest...?

Bill has been on the LFPP radar pretty much since we started the show and Graham Vasey mentioned him as they had met on one of his Iceland organised trips. Andrew had heard Mat Marrash talk about Bill years ago on the FPP when he interviewed Bill at his “PhotoStock” annual gathering in Michigan. Well it’s taken us to show 22 but we are sure glad we finally managed to get him on, hope you enjoy the chat. Things we chatted about on the show Andrew bought an old lens on ebay – he can't pronounce the name but the lens seems to have an interesting back story https://galerie-photo.com/berthiot-anastigmats-en.html Once attached to a lens board Andrew wants to use the lens to shoot Jason Lane’s dry plates that have now landed in the UK and are available from Analogue Wonderland https://analoguewonderland.co.uk/products/j-lane-dry-plates-4x5-plate-film-iso-2 Specifically the ISO 2 plates which he thinks will be perfect for making salt prints On the subject of salt prints Andrew and Bill both recommended books https://www.amazon.co.uk/Salt-Print-Manual-Ellie-Young/dp/144528328X and http://www.alternativephotography.com/salted-paper-printing-a-step-by-step-manual-highlighting-contemporary-artists/ The latter is by Christine Anderson who Bill speaks very highly of and has published a number of books on alternative processes. Bill spoke about creating digital negatives and indeed is collaborating with the aforementioned Christine Anderson on a book all about making them. Andrew referenced James Guerin who was the guest on show 81 of The Lensless Podcast and James uses a software tool called ChartThrob that easily makes printer print profiles for your digital negatives. https://anchor.fm/thelenslesspodcast/episodes/Show-81-James-Guerin-returns-ea4pmm http://www.botzilla.com/gearhead/2006/10/24/ChartThrob-A-Tool-for-Printing-Digital-Negatives.html Bill mentioned a number of photographers who attend his PhotoStock gathering check out his website for 2020 http://www.photostockfest.com/ Save The Date! We are in the very early stages of "organising" our own low key version  of Photostock. The work in progress plan is to do something over the second May Bank Holiday weekend  30th/31st May in a field at The Forest of Dean, Gloucester, UK Shout outs to Matt Marrash all round good guy http://matmarrash.com/ Thanks to Jeremey North, Dan Tree and Greg Obst who have donated to the show since we had Max from Intrepid on And…… If you live anywhere near Stoke On Trent then why not get in touch with Simon and coma along to the 6 Towns Darkroom on a Tuesday evening.

We have been admirers of Jeff’s Graflex SLR mods for a while now, and who could fail to miss his awesome sheet film inserts for pretty much any size sheet film you could want. Jeff is the driving force behind 20th Century Camera and we were pleased to spend time with him chatting about his business and loads more. We read out emails from Joachim Gross (Sinar and cutaways in glass) and Ben Farrar who puts us right over the origin of the term “Indian Summer” Monty Craig (the lens guy) gets a shout out too as we try and answer another question about lenses. Links and references arising from the discussions: Jeff loves Nico Photo News on YouTube (he reviewed the new one instant pack film) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6yh3JkMX-U Speaking of pack film, Andrew is super excited to receive his “One Instant” pack film from the successful Supersense Kickstarter. This film is currently made from old Polaroid stock and whilst FP100C it is not, those who love an expired look and the old polaroid film are in luck. Learn more over at Supersense https://supersense.com/oneinstant/ On the subject of instant film – did you know that following the demise of “New 55 Film” a pos neg polaroid film for your 5x4 camera, Sam Hiser picked up the remains and is now producing the film under the name “Famous Format” – boasting 100 and 400 speed emulsions, a better spread of chemicals and an improved balance between the resulting negative and the print. Again not cheap but id instant photography is your thing….. https://the-famous-large-small-format-photography-co.myshopify.com/ Thanks go to Steve Segasby who has kindly agreed to donate a 5x7 enlarger to the Six Towns Darkroom Club in Stoke-on-Trent. (Message Simon if you want to attend the club on Tuesday evenings). Steve was a previous guest on the show so check out episode 6 to hear what he gets up to. Jeff gave shout outs to Dave Shrimpton who we hope to have on the show soon http://daveshrimpton.co.uk/ The ubiquitous Ethan Moses of too many podcasts we can't name them all fame and Cameradactyl https://www.cameradactyl.com/ And his son Sam (sorry no link for Sam) who thinks his Dad now has a bit of street cred as he’s been on a podcast – sorry Sam you must be confusing us with another podcast.

#06 Emotions And Malevolence With Stephen Segasby

We are joined on the show by another of Andrew’s mates (he doesn’t have many so don’t worry) the very lovely Mr Stephen Segasby.  Steve was responsible in many ways for getting Andrew into Large Format Photography and even tried to explain the Scheimpflug Principle at their first LF meet up in North Norfolk, surprisingly they remained friends.  Steve is a thoughtful and deliberate image maker who uses metaphor and print series to convey feelings and emotions through the use of cameras and other print medium. As a founding member of the “Inside the Outside” collective he is passionate about the English Landscape, its mysteries, weirdness and history. Hope you enjoy the chat. Links and references arising from the discussions; Steve refrained from explaining the Sheimpflug principle but we all agreed there are some excellent YouTube resources to help us – like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wFjPVX6lrQ Mr S has a 12x20 ULF camera made by another bearded, hat wearing photographer Richard Ritter http://www.lg4mat.net/ Kenro Izu is a LF photographer Steve mentions he uses a ULF Deardorff camera and makes platinum prints – check out is work and books here http://kenroizu.com/index.html Another shout out to a previous bearded guest Graham Vasey – Steve and Graham are going fly fishing together (honestly). http://www.grahamvasey.com/ The work of influential landscape photographer Joe Cornish is mentioned. http://www.joecornishgallery.co.uk/ Andrew’s hero John Blakemore https://www.johnblakemore.co.uk/ and of course the Inside the Outside Collective where you can access loads of essays, series of work and hook up with all it’s members. https://www.inside-the-outside.com/ Al Brydon (Inside the Outside) has a book out of solargraphs https://www.jweditions.co.uk/images/solargraphs/ Stephen Segasby has a great website where you can view the series “A Process of Reclamation” that we discuss in the show, and much more https://www.stephensegasby.com/index On twitter https://twitter.com/steveseg Finally, there have been rumblings of discontentment regarding our theme music by Graeme Jago of the Sunny 16 Podcast. We shall run a pole in our Facebook group as to whether the music should be retained or retired. The poll will be closed when the correct result is reached.
