How Not to be Scenic We’re not quite back just yet, but we’re also not still on the road. Vania and Eric chit some chat and chat some shit on what they’ve been up to.
Vania has been taking the summer off, while Eric’s finished up the photography trip.
On the trip, she shot 260ish sheets and 70ish rolls of 120 across 7000ish miles. There’s not a lot of specifics.
Eric somehow managed to keep a travel journal, and reads a couple of entries from it about loss and how to cope with it on the road.

We also recommend that you check out Kaz Rowe’s video on the Cottingley Fairies Hoax. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtSVxd_pXns&t
 
Also, how about Johnny Got His Gun?

And hell, why not Day of the Dead while we're at it...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dIQJ39HKU0
 
We’ll be back next week for a whole new Dev Party! And a week after that for the first episode of the new season (you know, hopefully).

Dev Party - Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls (or Do, Actually) Full shownotes and pics: allthroughalens.com
 
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 of Fomapan 400 through a Speed Graphic with an older brass lens. These were developed in FA-1027; 1+14; for 9mins. The negatives were pretty thin, but it all worked out.
 
. . . Camera: Graflex Speed Graphic Lens: Steinheil Rapid Antiplanet 6,5; 27cm Film: Fomapan 400 Exposure: f/12; 1/50sec Process: FA-1027; 1+14; 9min Washington May 2022. . . Camera: Graflex Speed Graphic Lens: Steinheil Rapid Antiplanet 6,5; 27cm Film: Fomapan 400 Exposure: f/16; 1/30sec Process: FA-1027; 1+14; 9min Washington May 2022 
He also mentioned taking an additional shot with Foma 400 of the same cows from the same position, same camera, etc etc.

Say Hello For the Summer! - We Shall Update You! With Eric in Nebraska and Vania just getting back from Mexico, we thought it would be fun to give you a little update from the road.
Vania got stuck in the sand while Eric drove through and camped through several of the most severe storms he's ever experienced. 
But most importantly, how was the photography? Well, listen and find out!
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 they are:
 












 
Eric shot Ilford HP5+ through the Chamonix. Look!:

Smells We’ll Never Smell Again (and Our Best Dinosaur Roars) While we're on a bit of a summer break, we bring to you a Patreon bonus episode from March 2021.
 
We talk a lot, and the conversation meanders all over the place. So what do we talk about on this one?
 
- Malls
- Jobs we were really shitty at.
- Getting in trouble as kids. 
- Bidets
- What we'd trade our favorite cameras for.
- Scary Movies
- Our best dinosaur roars.
- The most difficult thing about doing the podcast.
- We try to figure out Gremlins.
- The smells we can never smell again.
 
We talk about photography more than it seems. But we also cover a LOT of other subjects. 
 
Enjoy!
Dev Party - Decadence (Ten Years Later...) 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 a couple of places that he had shot before. When he first shot these spots, he used a Holga with some sort of expired Fuji slide film xpro’d in C-41 a decade ago.
Ten years later, he returned with a Graflex and Fomapan 100 devved in FA-1027. Here they are, side by side.

Season Finale, Anne Brigman (w/ Kate Miller-Wilson)! - Episode 65 Welcome to the final episode of the season, our last episode before our summer break. While we are taking a little break, we will still have lots and lots of content for you. There will be Dev parties, updates from the road, and a few special surprises along the way.
But today we will be checking back in with Kate Miller Wilson (@katemillerwilson on IG), what’s she been up to for the past year? And will also be talking to you about photographer Anne Brigman, fortunately for everyone Kate will be sticking around to help us!
Not only that but the film detectives, Charlie and Sara (@casualscience and @thefutureofwhat on IG), we’ll be popping in with another case to solve.
There’s also the zine reviews, the answering machine, and so much more!
 
Anne Brigman
Photographer Anne Brigman is known almost exclusively for her nudes. Much of her known and available work depicts bodies contorted and twisted among the contorted and twisted pines of the high sierra mountains in California.
Her photography was unlike almost anything else in the early 1900s. And yet it fit perfectly into Alfred Stieglitz’s photo-secessionist movement. Today, with Kate Miller-Wilson, we’re going to talk about Anne Brigman and Alfred Stieglitz. 
By the turn of the century, Anne had become nearly obsessed with the High Sierras. It was then that she discovered photography. She probably acquired her first camera from her sister, Elizabeth and was immediately smitten. Her first photos, taken when she was 32, were of her family. These were mostly typical portraits rendered in a somewhat impressionistic style.
A year later, her work was exhibited by the San Francisco Photographic Salon and printed in Camera Craft, the magazine of the San Francisco Camera Club. She also began a correspondence with Alfred Stieglitz, founder of the Photo Secession movement, who was currently waging a war with both the photography and art communities, insisting that photography be considered an art rather than a science. 
Kate, Vania and Eric each picked a few of Anne’s photos and discussed them while talking about her life. Here are the photos they discussed (in order)…
 




































 
Kate Miller-Wilson
We talked to Kate last year at this time, so we’re just catching up. This is a great opportunity to discuss things we wouldn’t normally tackle. Heavy hitting subjects like:
Beach Shooting
Underwater 4×5?
When to shoot color and why we don’t do it anyway.
8×10 is just bigger 4×5
How to avoid Aero Ektar Cliches

We discuss a few of Kate’s photos, of course. Here are some…
 


























Zine Reviews
Where We Were (Vol. 2) by Shania Logan.
https://www.etsy.com/listing/1181034648/where-we-were-vol-ii-film-photography
With this issue, Shania leads us into town by way of closed up corner stores and school buses decaying in the sun. Mobile homes quickly disintegrate once unoccupied, and tar paper shacks are little more than a foundation. Long cold factories with darkened, smashed windows explain the depressing number of houses vacated, and the lines of empty streets.

Dev Party – Plus X and Aerial: Together Again for the First Time! On this fine little episode of Dev Party, we’re up in the air! Vania shoots some well-known skaters on Fuji Pro H 400 with the RB67. Meanwhile, Eric tests out some potentially oldish Plus X Aerial film cut down to 4×5… and it’s got sprockets!


Why the sprockets? Listen and find out!


Here are two of Vania’s:

The Greatest Medium Format Camera Ever Made (w/ Taylor!) – Episode 64 For full show notes and photos: https://allthroughalens.com/2022/06/07/the-greatest-medium-format-camera-ever-made-w-taylor-episode-64/
 
On this, our penultimate show of the season, we’re talking to Taylor (aka @taylarlar on IG) about whether or not you can rediscover home as a photographer (and a bunch of other stuff), we’ve also gathered a few friends to help us talk about the greatest medium format camera ever made – the Mamiya RB67.  We’ll also be reviewing a new book by Liz Potter (@lizpotterphotography on IG), there’s the answering machine messages, and lots and lots more!
Taylor
Today we interview our new best friend Taylor! She’s a film photographer from Minnesota, focusing on the idea of home and revisiting previous chapters in her life. We’ve both admired her work for a long time, and when sorting out a guest for the episode, we both independently picked Taylor!
IG: @taylarlar
Here is some of her work!










































 
The Greatest Medium Format Camera Ever Made!: The Mamiya RB67
The Mamiya RB67 is the greatest medium format camera ever produced. It is fully manual, requires no battery, and can double as an impact weapon. Weighing only 7lbs, the RB67 is ideal for hiking, a night on the town, or just relaxing at home.
And that’s what we’re doing now. We’re not out shooting. No, we’re recording a podcast and will tell you everything we can about the RB67. We don’t really do the whole gear talk thing, but fortunately we’ve brought along a few friends who… well, they don’t really do it either. But they’ll drop by shortly to tell you about their experiences with the greatest medium format camera ever produced!
We were helped by a few friends:
Jess Hobbs: @jesshobbsphoto; JessHobbs on YT
Dave Walker: @davethewalker80 on IG
Aly: @alysvintagecameraalley on IG; Aly’s Vintage Camera Alley on YT

Texas Grit by Liz Potter
We’ve had Liz Potter on a few times, and right now there’s definitely a bit of buzz about her. Liz is known for shooting panoramic self portraits and Polaroid lifts. But Texas Grit is neither of these. 
When a photographer carves out a little niche for herself in a specific corner of the film photography community, it’s always fun to see what else they’ve done. Texas Grit was originally released in 2019. She’s reprinted it with a new cover and introduction.
