Dev Party #10 – Dev Party of Four (by Five)

We are twinning today! On this episode, we both shot on Ilford HP5+, we’re both devving in Rodinal, and we both try to talk you in and out of making the switch to large format.

Dev Party #9 – Dev Party Out of Bounds

https://allthroughalens.podbean.com/mf/play/ja5bvu/ATAL-DevParty-009-final.mp3 We’re doing something a bit different this session of Dev Party – we’re stand developing color! What’s that, you say? Is that even a thing? Well it is. Sort of. First, stand developing usually (always?) means diluted developer and longer times with zero-ish agitation. For instance, a lot of folks stand develop with Rodinal,Continue reading “Dev Party #9 – Dev Party Out of Bounds”

Episode 16 – Hey, Let’s Put a Cow on the Roof

On this episode, we’re going to talk about daydreaming and dreaming of days. We’ve got a segment on Seattle FilmWorks – what is it? What was it? Can you shoot it? And speaking of Nebraska, we’re checking in with Solomon D. Butcher, a photographer from the late 1800s. But first, Eric mourns the loss ofContinue reading “Episode 16 – Hey, Let’s Put a Cow on the Roof”

Dev Party #7 – Dev Party For Your Right to Fight

Well that escalated quickly. We went from “hey there’s this weird flu thing” to “nobody leave their damn houses ever” in like a week (basically). So we’ve decided to back up a bit and give folks who have never developed film before a somewhat wordy overview on how to do it, and what specifically toContinue reading “Dev Party #7 – Dev Party For Your Right to Fight”

Dev Party #5 – Life of the Dev Party

For this episode of Dev Party, we’re taking on ECN-2! This is the color process usually used for motion picture film. But can it also be used for regular color film? Yes, absolutely. Eric has done this for years, and Vania is dipping her toes. We talk about the process itself, and especially about howContinue reading “Dev Party #5 – Life of the Dev Party”

Episode 012 – The Colors or Some Shadow or Something

On this episode, Vania and Eric talk shooting with people (or not), we’ll call up a very special guest, and dig into color photography before the invention of color film. We’ll also finish up our trilogy on zine making. Plus zine reviews and the announcement of a “new” old stock emulsion. But first, Vania’s beenContinue reading “Episode 012 – The Colors or Some Shadow or Something”

And Eric is developing a roll of HP5 he shot through a 6×7 back strapped ontoContinue reading “Dev Party #4 – Rock & Roll All Night and Dev Party Every Day”
