    As a older guy, I really liked this show. Yes, shooting Black and White with my Pentax K1000 is all about the photo, not the computer. I think you should have a seperate blog for non digital.

    The analog photo discussion was interesting. Never heard of pulling. I’m too lazy to go back to analog, but your discussions bring back pleasant memories from the 60’s.

    Hi there.  Yes I was still awake at the end of the show :)

    Hi, I loved this show, and it inspires me to try pulling a roll of film to see the better dynamic range I get.

    One question, Chris, at one time in this show you said you tried a series of shots, one at 1000, 500, 250, 125, etc.  You were saying this in the context (I believe) of pulling the film, but how can this be done on the same film?  I thought (and it was confirmed later in the show) that the entire film should be exposed at the same pull amount (doesn’t the entire film itself need to be developed in a different way when pulled?).

    Thanks.  Raymond.

    Just give it a try, pulling film will typically make it more forgiving to exposure mistakes.

    I’m amazed ;)

    Hi Chris, listened to your show while going to work today, so I was also awake at the end of the show. Great show, as always. Love to listen to them.
