On this week’s show we’re talking to the hardest working man in photography – Jamie Maldonado (@jamiemphoto on IG). Our feature this week is our first part of two about the Zone System – we’ll be doing our best to wade through that mess and tell you about how we’ve used it to take a few photos here and there. We’ve also got the answering machine and a couple of zine reviews.
We called up photographer Jamie Maldonado for a chat about shooting “Distance Sessions” via FaceTime during the (ever-ongoing) pandemic.
Here’s a selection of his work:

Basically the Zone System
We are admittedly new to Zone System, but that doesn’t stop us from slogging through Ansel Adams’ prose in some sort of self-flagellation ritual.
We referenced a photo taken by Eric for most of this.
Monochrome Mania No. 3 by Mark O’Brien, which you can (and absolutely should) pick up here.
We also reviewed Venetiae Deerratus by Federico Quaglino.
