Christin Boggs: Back in the Darkroom

Christin Boggs: Back in the Darkroom | black and white film photo | Scoop.it
I haven't worked in the darkroom since undergrad ('07), so it's been really nice to revisit the analog photographic process. I'm also shooting color film with my Hasselblad, but that will take a little longer to process.

Contax G2 review | Laurence Kim Photographer

Contax G2 review | Laurence Kim Photographer | black and white film photo | Scoop.it
If you shoot film for very long or very seriously, you will have to try a rangefinder. You will want a Leica, but settle for any number of respectable substitutes until you just can't put it off any longer and take the plunge. While you are deciding if a camera could possibly be as greate as a Leica is reputed to be, you should try a Contax.

This article describes a Contax G2, which has a great reputation among its fans, and shares some quirks with other rangefinders, but seems doomed by its ridiculous autofocus "feature." Why in the name of Ahura Mazda would you get a rangefinder with autofocus? Ah well, dumber things have been offered in the name of art. Skip down to the middle of the blog entry for some black and white photos that remind us of the allure of black and white film. Then skip the color photos completely, and come back here for another article. -Jeff

The Story of How the Influential Nikon F SLR Camera Was Designed

If you have ever shot with a Nikon F camera, you need to see this video. If you have ever read Suzuki or Alan Watts on Zen, you will want to see how this camera reintegrated a sensibility in war-torn Japan. I have an F, with a 50 mm f1.4 lens, and I have the S2 that was the precursor to the SLR. Try as I might, I cannot get very far from the Nikon experience. -Jeff (p.s. I have been looking for this video for a year, and am grateful to PetaPixel for getting it back on the web in accessible form...)

Old school photography lessons - MetroWest Daily News

Old school photography lessons - MetroWest Daily News | black and white film photo | Scoop.it
Teaching modern photography, in my view, doesn't have to start with analog processes and assume students will "get" the transfer functions and characteristic curves of film and paper, which will automatically make them better digital photographers. You can start with digital and photoshop to help visualize what changes to the characteristic curve and gamma function of the image actually do, interactively, and that can make students better film photographers if they want to pursue a different experience. The emphasis should shift from the image substrate -- film versus bits -- and concentrate on the idea of mapping values from one domain to another. Perhaps not incidentally, it would provide a good opportunity to help creative kids become more comfortable with Calculus at an experiential level, and it would be a more productive way to help students with no interest in film master the tools they are more likely to need in a professional track. This article gives a good example of how this "false dichotomy" plays out in curriculum design and teacher's experiences. -Jeff

Read the words of a practioner. Really, you need to stay in touch with people at the low end of the learning curve to understand the forgiveness of the photo processes. Many people are scared off by the excessive tension they experience around fanatical photographers, particularly those who faint at the sight of a wispy scratch on the front of their $3000 lens. My advice, is don't ever spend $3000 on a lens.
