The Large Format Photography Podcast

All things large format

After a recommendation by Bob Matter and many months of being “on our list”, it was with great pleasure that we finally got to talk with Travis Linville about his love for wet plate portraits and analogue photography.

Travis lives near Chicago so of course listeners to the Classic Lenses Podcast will know that we had to start the conversation by asking him what the weather was like.

Things we chatted about on the show:

 

Why not come and join us the “LFPP 2020 Gathering in the Forest” over the weekend of 29th and 30th May.

Bracelands Camp Site, Forest of Dean (that’s in the UK for those in the colonies) – 

www.campingintheforest.co.uk/england/forest-of-dean/bracelands-campsite

 

Andrew will be arriving on the Friday and Simon on the Saturday. The main “gathering” will be Saturday evening when we hope to share witty tales of large format japes, drink adult beverages and eat burnt food…..what’s not to love.

 

In preparation for our Gathering in the Forest, Andrew bought new ground glass for his wooden Bomm L45 camera and to say he’s pleased with it is an understatement.

Check out virgisst on ebay, he’s in Lithuania and super low prices and high quality, Thoroughly recommended.

 

Travis hasn’t been making wet plate images for all that long, one of his inspirations for portraits was Giles Clement and you can see his work here.

www.gilesclement.com

 

Thanks to all those who donated using the Ko-Fi site and to our email contributors, we finally managed to answer some (well two) before running out of time. 

 

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

You know how to find him

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. You know how to find him!

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

We are beginning to run out of superlatives to describe the guests we have on this show, but Simon’s title for this week’s show pretty much sums it up …. No Words Allowed.

Kate Miller-Wilson joins us for a thoughtful and insightful glimpse into her daily life at home with Eian who is on the autistic spectrum and her (currently) 5 years of photographing him mostly in recent times, with a 4x5 camera.

 

Things we chatted about on the show

 

Andrew was excited to receive some prints made from Polaroid Originals instant film, scanned and uploaded to Harman Labs – they did a great job and are thoroughly recommended.

https://www.harmanlab.com/

 

Simon spoke about his recent photwalk and meet up with “The Danger Boys” David S Allen (@DBloomsday) and Simon Ridddell (@SRFFilmPhoto) – organised by Hamish Gill of 35mmc (@HamishGill)

Who spent a week underground with an Intrepid Camera photographing in the dark and making a huge print – you can watch the video for a fee here (it helps recoup the costs of making it)

https://watch.inchindown.com/?fbclid=IwAR0R5qTo5cig_yLQG255La-hfSKEyf003envEdMQEzJbav5kKTQ8Elq30kE

 

Hamish Gill runs a great site called 35mmc and is a wonderful photographic resource

https://www.35mmc.com/

 

Sunny16 Podcast gets a mention

https://sunny16podcast.com/

 

Andrew spoke about Susan Burnstine, he has her book Absence of Being

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Absence-Being-Susan-Burnstine/dp/8862084757

 

Anne Silver gets a mention – Andrew and Kate are both long-standing admirers of her work, a lot of self portraits

#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

What a wonderful selection of guests we have had since we started the show, all very inspirational loads of fun. Our guest on show 18 is no exception, so if you are unfamiliar with the work of Brendan Barry then head over to his website straight away – alternatively do that later, sit back, pour a glass of something and enjoy the conversation.

Just a note of caution, we had a few audio issues for this episode, hopefully the gremlins will be gone for next time.

 

Things we chatted about on the show

Cary Norton builds cameras from Lego and was an early inspiration

https://carynorton.com/legotron-mark-i

 

Brendan was asked to turn the 46th floor of 101 Park Avenue into a camera obscura, the building has 160 windows and is a space of 26,000 ftsq – not a problem – just ask https://redhooklabs.com/ and https://aperture.org/about/ to hook up with some students of diverse backgrounds to come along and help. Find out more here

https://www.thephoblographer.com/2019/06/04/brendan-barry-transformed-skyscraper-into-camera-obscura/

 

Of course it wasn’t long before we had to mention those good old boys over at https://homemadecamera.podbean.com/

 

Andrew mentioned the wonderful Heather Oelklaus who has a pinhole truck and a great website – www.Camerakarma.com

 

Brendan shouted out to Stephen Raff and Nicky Thompson, Wet plate Collodion workers in the UK https://www.stephenraffphotography.co.uk/new-page-2 and also https://www.nickyjthompson.co.uk/index.html

 

Here's a link to the Positive Light Projects - https://www.positivelightprojects.com

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.

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)

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

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
