MPP 56; A Lighttight Box

All cameras reduce down to a Light light box, a lens (or a pinhole) and somewhere to put film or a sensor. Does that mean all cameras are the same? How does choice of camera affect the creation of photographs?

This week I am joined by my good friend Bill Smith, one of the cohosts of the Classic Camera Revival podcast and a great photographer!

I highly recommend checking out his photo blog: and his Instagram feed:
