Dev Party – The Results of Inspiration (Basically)

On this episode of Dev Party, Eric (@conspiracy.of.cartographers on IG) and Vania (@surfmartian on IG) talk a bit about how they plan to incorporate last episode’s inspiration into their lives. Vania shot Kodak Gold 200 in the Rolleiflex with a waterhousing. Eric shot some Foma 100 and devved it in FA-1027 (aka F76+) Vania wasContinue reading “Dev Party – The Results of Inspiration (Basically)”

Dev Party – The Family Just Disappeared

On this episode of Dev Party, we both develop color film in Eric’s DIY ECN-2 kits. Vania shot a roll of 220 through her Pentax – on the water, of course. Meanwhile, Eric explored an abandoned house with colorful walls and a bit of a mystery. That roll of 220 Vania shot was Kodak VericolorContinue reading “Dev Party – The Family Just Disappeared”

Dev Party – Stand Development and Ask Us Basically Anything

In some sort of celebration of our third anniversary, we did an AMA – Ask Us Anything. Most folks asked us about photography and developing (and none of the boring ‘desert island’ and ‘why film’ questions). We field a bunch of questions while waiting for our hour-long stand development to be over. Eric developed IlfordContinue reading “Dev Party – Stand Development and Ask Us Basically Anything”

Dev Party – Workin’ Part Time at the 5 & Dime (510 Pyro, Okay?)

Due to popular “demand,” we’re developing Ilford FP4 in 510 Pyro! Eric (@conspiracy.of.cartographers on IG) has used it a bit before, but Vania (@surfmartian on IG) tries it for the first time! We both shot FP4, but Eric did 120 through the Mamiya RB67 and Vania did sheets with her Graflex Super D. We walkContinue reading “Dev Party – Workin’ Part Time at the 5 & Dime (510 Pyro, Okay?)”

Dev Party – Who Loves a Tank Full of Plates?

On this episode of Dev Party, Vania and Eric develop two wildly different emulsions. Vania finds a roll of Bergger Panchro 400, while Eric tries to make 4×5 dry plates work in an 8×10 Stearman press tank. Unfortunately, Vania had some bad luck and there’s nothing to show. Less unfortunately, Eric had some mediocre luckContinue reading “Dev Party – Who Loves a Tank Full of Plates?”

Dev Party – The Worst Emulsion You Can Force Upon Your Camera(?)

On this episode of Dev Party we do a couple of things. First, we take a second and closer look at Shanghai in both roll film and sheets. Is there a difference? What is Shanghai really? Is it ORWO UN54? And if so, why does it look like …. this? And will Eric stand byContinue reading “Dev Party – The Worst Emulsion You Can Force Upon Your Camera(?)”

Dev Party – Pre-Game for the Old Flame (Too Many What?)

On this, our first true Dev Party of the new season, half of us are developing film and the other half are talking about a new old camera, famous and infamous! What could it be? Tune in! Eric is the one developing. He’s got eight sheets of Ansco Versapan from May of 1964. He shotContinue reading “Dev Party – Pre-Game for the Old Flame (Too Many What?)”

Dev Party – Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls (or Do, Actually)

On this episode of Dev Party, Vania shoots some Fuji Pro400H while Eric messes with Fomapan 400. Vania shot these with a Nikon F and a 50mm lens. The Pro 400 H did okay, she supposes. Here are her photos, taken on her trip to Northern California. Meanwhile, Eric shot a couple of sheets ofContinue reading “Dev Party – Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls (or Do, Actually)”

Dev Party – Vania Takes a Trip, Eric Takes a Hike

On this episode, surprisingly, Vania takes a trip and Eric takes a hike! Vania heads up to northern California to a Hobo Convention. She tells us all about it and shares some of the sheets she shot. Meanwhile, Eric explores an abandoned house. Vania shot Fomapan 200 through her Graflex Super D 4×5. Here theyContinue reading “Dev Party – Vania Takes a Trip, Eric Takes a Hike”

Dev Party – Decadence!

On this episode of Dev Party, Vania and Eric (@surfmartian and @conspiracy.of.cartographers on IG) talk about going back to locations shot long ago. Vania developed Kodak Ektachrome in one of Cinestill’s slide film developers (and once she’s experimented with it more, we’ll do an episode about it). Here are her shots: Meanwhile, Eric revisited aContinue reading “Dev Party – Decadence!”
