    What Your Light Meter is Trying to Tell You, Pt. 2

    What Your Light Meter is Trying to Tell You, Pt. 2

    In the second half of this episode, I talk about different methods of working with various light meter readings to achieve the final outcome you envision when you take the picture. I go a little into the zone system (though not very much at all) and a modified short-hand version called the Two Up, Two Down method. 

    In the second half I talk about incident light meters, including a relatively inexpensive adaptor that allows you to use your phone as an incident light meter.

    What Your Light Meter is Trying to Tell You, Pt. 1

    What Your Light Meter is Trying to Tell You, Pt. 1

    In order to properly expose the film in your camera, you need to know how much light is falling on the scene you are trying to make a picture of. You can use your camera's built-in light meter, a hand-held dedicated meter or even your own eyes to determine that amount of light but measuring that light is only part of the story. In this episode, I discuss how to use the data from the light meter to get the right exposure settings to your camera. Most of the time, you can simply transfer the readings to the shutter speed and aperture controls but sometimes you need to adjust those readings. I will tell you how in this episode. 

    Toward the end of the episode I talk about a device called a gray card. Here is a link to one on B and H Photo's website:

    Buying Your First Rangefinder: Holiday Rangefinders Pt. 2

    Buying Your First Rangefinder: Holiday Rangefinders Pt. 2

    Many companies worldwide developed rangefinder cameras for holiday-goers between about 1955 and 1980. Many of these cameras are still excellent user cameras for today and for people who have not yet tried shooting film with rangefinders, these cameras represent a good entry point to the rangefinder world.

Great Podcast

I have enjoyed every single episode. I have been, and still am a digishooter. But I recently got into film, and am loving it. Graham has passion and extensive knowlege that is hard to beat. Plus, ulnike some film photography podcasters, he doesn't make fun of those who use digital cameras. Can't wait for more episodes!!!

A must for those interested in learning film photography

Graham has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things photographic but especially film photography. A must listen for those just starting out in film photography or getting back into it after a long time away. Though I took plenty of pics of the point and shoot variety growing up, I was never really into photography. I am now picking it up and I learn something new from every episode. Each episode focuses on a specific subject but in the course of discussing that thing Graham mentions all of these related subjects that he says he will cover in future episodes. Looking forward to hearing it all!
