Episode 61 - Sooty Tales From The Magic White-Box
Todays show is a special one that was recorded originally as part of the Tales From The Magic Box podcast's December special.  Henry did a great job of cutting it around many other segments from other podcasters, but it is presented here in full.   Neil heads out along the railway line in search of a couple of pictures.  He does that quite a bit it would seem...! 😃  This time he's armed with Stewie and a few sheets of photographic paper. Happy New Year all, and here's to a positive 2021. ------------------------------- Tales From The Magic Box can be heard here and is well worth some of your time. ------------------------------- As always please feel free to drop us an email at sootandwhitewash@gmail.com or send us a call in if you’d like to get your voice out on the show!

Episode 55 - Neil's First Thoughts on the Production Pixl-Latr
Welcome to the Err train!  Whoo Whoo!   Neil has received his Pixl-Latr and does an impromptu unboxing and review, no real planning and lots of rambling, but hopefully of interest! On the shows Youtube channel (yes there is such a thing...) there is also a (not great) video that hopefully demonstrates the Pixl-Latr better than an audio podcast.  We'll let you be the judge of that...! Find that here, assuming Neil can work YouTube properly...which is doubtful... *feels the need to make a gag along the lines of better Pixl-latr than never.... ....sorry... 😃  ------------------------------- Get your own Pixl-Latr here  35mmc ------------------------------- As always please feel free to drop us an email at sootandwhitewash@gmail.com or send us a call in if you’d like to get your voice out on the show!

Episode 54 - The No. 3-A Kodak Jr...
An episode that had every intention of just being a short follow up to  show 53 that took on a life of its own... Neil is in the darkroom making paper negatives with the monstrous Kodak folder he picked up earlier in the day.  Success, failure, some better success and some final images.  Oh and he 'ended' the show several times so make sure the 'end' you finish at is the actual end of the show!  ------------------------------- As always please feel free to drop us an email at sootandwhitewash@gmail.com or send us a call in if you’d like to get your voice out on the show!

Episode 51 - Maybe I'll Use It As An Enlarger...
Alex and Neil are back after a 12ish week long break!  As such they’ve got a massive list of stuff that they want to chat about, but only touch on a small bit of it - but don’t worry they do throw themselves head first into many a rabbit hole.  Some of them are even related to photography! Shooting lenses outside your normal comfort zone, Gandolfi cameras, other podcasts and how the Covid-19 pandemic has affected things in general.  They do put an end date on the Ricoh competition - end of July 2020 (listen back to episode 50 for full details) - and as mentioned, if you enter, your odds of winning are very good right now...! 😃  Shout out again to listener Christer Brant for being awesome and offering up the prize.  They forgot to thank Kevin MacLeod for the music (thanks Kevin, details below) and probably forgot to give out socials - they’re below as well! Definitely forgot to mention the Ko-Fi fund (guess what, thats below as well…!)  Frankly there’s probably loads more but chances you’re not still reading this garbage anyway…for those that are, really this is the most rambly, tangent led episode of anything ever recorded by anybody…sorry but actually not sorry -its always great catching up...!  -------------------------------  Linden at Londinium Cameras  Ian Turpin & The Ordinary Photographer   I think this is the video Alex mentioned about Gandolfi Cameras, which unfortunately closed up shop in 2017  -------------------------------  As always please feel free to drop us an email at sootandwhitewash@gmail.com or send us a call in if you’d like to get your voice out on the show!

Episode 50 - A Giant Roll of Sellotape...
It's the big 5 - 0 for us over here at Soot & Whitewash towers, so Alex and Neil get together for a chat about, well, a whole bunch of stuff.  Frankly we didn't keep great notes and make no apologies for it... What we do remember is there is a fantastic camera and film giveaway from listener Christer Brandt, Neil forgets to hit record on the conversation, Alex screws up some developing, Neil tries to capture an image in an empty film holder, and we flesh all that out with loads of analogue photography chat.    ------------------------------- Londinium Cameras - https://londiniumcameras.com Roger Lean - London, 0208 881 5208 Analogue Wonderland - https://analoguewonderland.co.uk Simon Forster - https://simonforsterphotographic.co.uk & @simonforsterphotographic on instagram Firstcall Photographic - https://www.firstcall-photographic.co.uk Andrew Sanderson can be found at @andrewsandersonphotography on instagram His new website and blog is at https://www.stuckathomephotography.co.uk and has an instagram account at @stuckathomephotography The photograph of the pear we were talking about was taken by Dallas Sells, who can be found in the Large Format Photography Podcast Facebook group  - https://www.facebook.com/groups/2296599290564807/ Project Box Camera - www.projectboxcamera.wordpress.com and @projectboxcamera on instagram  ------------------------------- As always please feel free to drop us an email at sootandwhitewash@gmail.com or send us a call in if you’d like to get your voice out on the show!

Episode 47 - Capturing A White Whale...
In todays show I’m in a great mood and I’m back in Dunwich trying to capture this white whale photograph with Stewie. I talk a little bit about Project Box Camera, why I set it up with Alex and I even shoot my first roll for the project. I develop some sheets, some 127 and some 620 and talk through my developing process with Caffenol CL.  Actually just one sheet. So not sheets with an ’s’. I also tell the story of how Stewie came to be, for those who didn’t read the show notes last time…and probably aren’t this time either…! ------------------------------- Project Box Camera can be found at: Instagram - @projectboxcamera Blog - www.projectboxcamera.wordpress.com ------------------------------- As always please feel free to drop me an email at sootandwhitewash@gmail.com or send me a call in if you’d like to get your voice out on the show!

Episode 46 - Out and About With Stewie...
In this episode I venture into the outside world with my Speed Graphic for the first time.  There's me learning stuff, having fun, getting stuff wrong, pulling my hair out (what little is left) and ultimately a happy ending.  Its a bit longer than I'd hoped but that happens I guess sometimes when you ramble on without a coherent idea of what you're doing... Apologies for the wind noise in some of the segments. Theres a lot of cursing in this show just to warn the people that care... ------------------------------- ...and who's Stewie you ask?  Well, I was reading something about people having names for their large format cameras the other day and I thought it was odd.  But I still got to thinking what the Speed Graphic's name might be.  I was watching an episode of Family Guy and it occurred to me that the initials SP, Speed Graphic, were the same as Stewie Griffin...therefore Stewie the Speed Graphic.   Dumb, but it appears to have stuck.

Episode 43 - Welcome To Awkward-ville. Population, Me...
Welcome to possibly the most awkward podcast you'll hear all year.   Basically I have decided over the past couple of months that it could be a good idea to set up a Ko-Fi page for the show, and after some convincing by other podcast hosts and friends I have bitten the bullet and done so.   I really dont know how I feel about it, hence the awkward show but the general consensus from others was "if people like the show and want to donate, they cant if you dont have a page set up..." which is a very fair point.  I just dont know how much people actually like the show I guess.   To make it clear:  I've never once expected or even wanted to make a penny from this show, and that still stands.  Anything that you lovely people do choose to throw in will go into the pot for use with the show.  I talk about that more in the show.   Thanks for listening, every single one of you are awesome.   Oh yeah, and I was so nervous I introduced it as show 42.  Its actually show 43.  *buries face into palms for making such a dumb error... ------------------------------- Ko-Fi: https://ko-fi.com/sootandwhitewash ------------------------------- As always please feel free to drop me an email at sootandwhitewash@gmail.com or send me a call in if you’d like to get your voice out on the show!

Episode 38 - Mells To Wenhaston: PT2
In this follow up episode I return to the Mells/Wenhaston bridge remains (avoiding the bovine bullies) and make some new pinhole photographs.  I even almost got my feet wet... I then head off back to Walberswick to reshoot a few frames and make some new discoveries.   -------------------------------  You can see the project in its infancy at:  http://www.neilpiper.com/southwold-to-halesworth  I am hoping to get some feedback on the work so far, if you get the chance and would like to help my research then please drop me a line on one of the channels below.  Right now the images are unsequenced, and haven't been colour graded - they're pretty much straight off the scanner.  -------------------------------  As always please feel free to drop me an email at sootandwhitewash@gmail.com or send me a call in if you’d like to get your voice out on the show!

Episode 36 - One Roll, One Hour - More Southwold to Halesworth
So inspired by the Sunny 16 guys I went out with the intention of shooting one roll of 120 in an hour, walking more of the railway line that I have spoken about previously for my project Southwold to Halesworth. FYI, setting yourself that task with pinhole is dumb... 😃  Originally it was going to be submitted to those guys as a short recording, but as it ran a bit longer than I had expected and I got into more detail about the project rather than the shooting, I decided that I would publish it as Soot and Whitewash show 36 instead - sorry Sunny 16... 😉  ------------------------------- As always please feel free to drop me an email at sootandwhitewash@gmail.com or send me a call in if you’d like to get your voice out on the show!
