This week I had the pleasure of chatting with photographer Kathrena Revera. We talked about photographic motivation in the age of social media (inspired by this article linked to by Kathrena) as well as Kathrena's approach to photography and her work using pinhole and toy cameras.
I had a lot of fun talking photography with Jeremy North in England via Skype this morning. I am lining up a couple of other guests but if you want to talk photography and want to be on the show please let me know!
This time around, more exciting slide film news! Kodachrome Developing! Kelly-Shane Fuller offers Kodachrome developing!
I interviewed Kelly-Shane indepth about his process last year for the Classic Camera Revival Podcast. Listen here.
Continuing my cranky old-timer theme, I talk about manual focus, manual exposure, and physical controls on cameras.
Here is an example of shooting at a foggy beach where manual controls really helped me.
This time around, I talk about my limited gear choices as a teen in the 1970's and why in retrospect it was a good thing. Also, why computers are the best thing that ever happened to film photography!
Links to cameras discussed:
This week, the return of Kodak Ektachrome slide film, and Kodachrome Rumours!

One day early, here is this week's episode of MPP.
I talk about printing, as well as a new (to me) camera, the Voigtlander Bessa 66 medium format folder.
The Bessa 66 open
Here are two examples of images I took using this lovely camera:
This week I start of by apologizing for last week (the tech issue specifically). If you don't know what I'm talking about you downloaded the fixed version of the episode.
Next, I talk about a massive camera, the Mamiya RZ67 (I also mention its predecessor the RB67)
Some of my images with this beast.
