Shooting Film – A look at film photography


In what was possibly a very overdue episode (at least as Brian is concerned), in #39 we decided to leave digital behind (sort of) and bring you an overview of what is to shoot film.

However declining film photography is, the number of passionate film followers is on the rise and no photography podcast would be complete without a look at the more "old" form of photography.

To help us on the discussion, we invited a friend of the show and film enthusiast Tomas Webb. Together with Brian – our official film expert – we hope that the discussion is good enough to at least have you consider grabbing a film camera and shoot a few rolls.

From film workflow to an overview of the "wet" darkroom, and touching on scanning, there’s lots of good information on this one.

And a question for you: If you’ve never shot film before, would you consider it in the future? Drop us your comment.

Also, don’t forget to vote on our latest poll: What’s your photography budget for 2010?



Due to an annoying sound issue, I’ve had to increase the volume more than on previous episodes. If this is an issue for you, please let us know. If we get no comments on this, I’ll probably keep the amplification at this level for further episodes.

Great episode guys. It was fun to finally hear Tomas’ voice after exchanging comments and Flickrmail. This will definitely be a good resource to point people to who may be interested in getting into film. And thanks for answering my question. As soon as I get some free time I’m going to sit down with my scanner. Only one of us will prevail and it will be me. 🙂
