Ted Vieira joined me for show no. 109.
Ted is one of those guys that is so laid back 'cool' and relaxed that it set the scene for an easy conversation... Talking to him is just a joy. In this episode we talked about his love of film photography using his Leica M6, and his Medium format camera the Mamiya c330, also his film preferences. After so many tests his preference for now is Acros, but there are many more he wants to test! His love of film photography is due largely to the Fuji filter options on his Fuji X-Pro2 and X-T2. He says in the interview that Fuji made him slow down after he had switched from Canon. Which in-turn made him consider using film cameras for his personal work. Ted is an accomplished portrait and glamour photographer and produces some fine work for his wonderful commercial work, for which he still prefers to work with his Fuji's (X100T, X-Pro2 and the X-T2). But for his street photography he is enjoying his Leica M6 and Mamiya c330 out and about. In the show you will see us compare printed images instead of the usual screen share. A new idea of mine, which I think really showed the quality of work that can be achieved with Film cameras.
So, I hope this show gives you a few pointers and if you haven't considered trying an 'old' film camera why not do so?... It might just open your eyes a little wider to the wonderful art of photography.
