Show Notes


The last days of Kodachrome

Michael, Duane and John discuss the last days of Kodak Kodachrome

Kodachrome in 2011 – Shoot and develop as Black & White

According to the folks at Blue Moon Camera, Kodachrome contains an extra layer that will “gunk up” during BW development, sticking to the film causing some emulsion loss. Develop Kodachrome (as BW) in its own tank so not to contaminate other film stocks.

EV – Exposure Value

“In photography, exposure value (EV) denotes all combinations of a camera's shutter speed and relative aperture that give the same exposure. The concept was developed in Germany in the 1950s (Ray 2000, 318), in an attempt to simplify choosing among combinations of equivalent camera settings”

Shooting Sprocket Photography!

“Sprocket hole photography is a style of photography that exposes the full width of 35 mm film, creating a photograph punctuated by the "sprocket holes" (perforations) along the edges of the film.”
