Episode 20: Community Darkrooms, Subminiatures, and More

This week on the Camerosity Podcast, we’ve reached the 20th episode of the show!  For something that was started completely on a whim, I am amazed at the support and enthusiasm from all of our listeners!  We are officially the fastest growing open source film photography podcast in the world!!!  Anthony, Paul, Theo and myself all really appreciate the positive feedback from you all, so thank you very much!

On this episode, we cover the process of starting a community darkroom with alternative process photographer, Cindy Steiler, some of our tips and tricks for the home developer, we jump very deep into some really obscure subminiature and our favorite 110 cameras, plus a whole lot of other Camerosity related discussion.  Along with Cindy and the regular hosts, we have returning guests Robert Rotoloni, Dwight Anderson, Larry Effler, Michael Kaplan, Jon Gilchrist, Jess Ibarra, and Bill Smith.  Our first time guests are Christopher Paulin, Nick Marshall, and from the Embrace the Grain Podcast, Sherry Christensen.

Every week, the topics we discuss on the Camerosity Podcast are decided entirely upon you, so if you’d like to join us, be sure to look out for our next show announcement for Episode 21, which we will record at our normal time of 7pm CST (UTC -6), 8pm EST (UTC -5) on Monday, March 7th.
