The Large Format Photography Podcast

All things large format

Hunky Pilot, body builder and press up champion (ask Ben Horne) Alan Brock joins Simon and Andrew to chat about hiking in the far reaches of Zion National park, backpacking with an Intrepid Camera, the Darkslide Collective, Fresnel screens and lots of other stuff…..ahhhh you’ll have to listen.

Oh and Simon clearly wants to get into wet mounting... (we left an outtake in the middle of recording)

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.

So sit back, close your eyes and listen to this erudite gentleman talk with us two numptys.

Andrew gave a shout out to Odyssey Devere and to John Boyce in particular – OD refurbish and make large format enlargers (including digital ones whatever they are)

http://odyssey-sales.co.uk/product-category/photographic-enlargers/

 

Sandeha mentioned a great book “Adventures with pinhole and home-made cameras” by John Evans – a few on sale here

https://www.abebooks.co.uk/servlet/SearchResults?sts=t&cm_sp=SearchF-_-home-_-Results&an=&tn=adventures+with+pinhole+and+home-made+cameras&kn=&isbn=

 

We discussed painting’s effect on photography and vice versa, touching on Simon’s favourite subject of perspective and Sandeha recommended looking at paintings by Degas

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

FPP archivist and occasional guest joins us this week to discuss his love affair with all things wet plate.

We get to question him about the process, history, materials and a bit about gear though not too much (mmm another guest we need back on).

We didn’t discuss the zone system on this show so apologies to anyone out there who needed a zone system fix, you may have to wait a few shows.

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

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

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

Fist fights all around as guests squared up to each other to have the honour of being on the LFPP this week. 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

We are joined this week by Ethan Moses of migraine inducing Cameradactyl camera fame.

Ethan comes to talk to us about his love for LF photography, options for new starters, some stuff Andrew didn’t understand and the super awesome handheld Cameradactyl OG (Old Goat, Orange Guice, Otter gizzard…heck we forgot to ask him). 

 

Links and references arising from the discussions:

Ethan’s favourite podcast isn’t any that Simon and Andrew host but the rather brilliant Homemade Camera Podcast (here is the episode he appeared in)

Ethan likes to use paper negatives in LF cameras – the definitive guide can be found here

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

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.

Should you wish to send spam/abuse to Graeme, please send it to sunny16podcast@gmail.com
