Ethan, Nick, and Graham get together to talk about stereo photography, the use of two lenses to create images that appear to be in 3D.
Graham is enthusiastic.
Nick is skeptical.
Ethan is pedantic.
Ian Fleming (https://www.instagram.com/ifleming/ or simply @ifleming) stops by in the latter part of the show to talk about his experiences with the subject.
You can read Ethan’s Wiki article about Ren Ng (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ren_Ng). However, Ethan’s presentation about stereo photography that he presented in front of 1 (one, as in one more than zero, which we should all acknowledge is greater than zero) is not currently available on the interwebs. He thinks he can resurrect it and if he can, we all think he should put it on the Homemade Camera YouTube.
And, speaking of, this episode is available on the aforementioned YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJ3JmlNccVI&t=140s). If you’ve never been to YouTube, this would be a good time to get your feet wet. It’s a really cool place. Seriously.
I’m not joking, it’s cool.
We talk with Matt Bechberger of Reveni Labs about his new spot meter.
We try something new, Livestreaming to the world. Tell us how it worked for you. Also, Nick talks about how he hates skateboarders at the end because he doesn’t like that we paved the world. Get off my lawn — Graham quoting Nick completely from Graham’s imagination. Nick doesn’t really have a lawn kids could play on. Fawns yes, kids no.

This episode was recorded during the early stages of the worldwide Coronavirus scare in the Western Hemisphere and we start of with talking about a crowdsourcing project that Ethan is working on.
Facebook group: Opensource Covid-19 medical supplies
Multiple crowd-sourced projects: #projectopenair #coventchallenge

We eventually move on to talk to Dave Walker (https://www.instagram.com/davethewalker80/) and he tells us about how he got into cameras, photography and tinkering and about the atomic nature of his day job. He talks about the Bulldog 4X5 camera (https://www.ephotozine.com/article/bulldog-5×4-self-assembly-camera-large-format-review-7560) which is unfortunately no longer available.
He also talks a bit about a digital camera he built for infrared work in the darkroom using a car back-up camera.
The big reason we wanted to talk to Dave is his work with LCD shutters and their capabilities. They are very cool.
We move on to the Covid Camera Challenge: Build a camera at home with parts on-hand as low-tech or as high-tech as you want it to be. Build it and take pictures of it and send them to us. We will put together a PDF zine of the projects. If you can’t use it because you can’t get it developed or can’t get the film or whatever, that’s cool. We are aiming at an end of May deadline on this project.
