FPP Internet Radio - Show Notes, Baby!


Episode 34 - May 1, 2011

Show Notes by Dan Domme

Film Photography Podcast host Michael Raso and Mat Marrash are joined in the studio by guest Dan Domme. Show includes a re-cap of the first FPP Meet-Up in NYC! Meet-Up participants are interviewed on the streets of NYC along with a visit to Lomography NYC, Impossible Project NYC. Plus, John calls in from Sea World, the Big Polaroid Giveaway, Listener Letters and more, more, more!

It’s the FPP New York City Meetup Show! Join host Michael Raso as he meets up with podcast listeners in New York City. On April 16th, 2011, listeners of the FPP met in New York City, and for those of you who weren’t able to attend (or just said, “Are you crazy? I don’t want to meet these jerks!”) can experience the next best thing! It’s just like being there, only you’re not getting rained on. Sprinkled in the show notes are YouTube videos that you heard on the show!

In the studio, Mike is joined by newly official FPP co-host Mat Marrash and special guest Dan Domme.

One of the things we saw on our photo walk was the “High Line” (From Wikipedia:) “The High Line is a 1.45-mile (2.33 km) New York City park built on a section of the former elevated freight railroad spur called the West Side Line, which runs along the lower west side of Manhattan; it has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway. The High Line Park currently runs from Gansevoort Street, one block below West 12th Street, in the Meatpacking District, up to 20th Street, and will eventually run through the neighborhood of Chelsea to the West Side Yard, near the Javits Convention Center.”

Back on the audio tape, Mat introduces the Lomography Spinner 360. Anton asks Mike about his film format habits and talk about his Olympus OM-1 and how he doesn’t have Gear Acquisition Syndrome, despite having 20 cameras. Ron talks about the podcast that he hosts with FPP listener John Meadows, called the Film Photography Forecast.

What is FPP?
The Film Photography Project seeks to inform, engage and inspire amateur and professional photographers working in the traditional film medium. Launched by FPP founder Michael Raso in 2009, FPP provides a forum for photographers from around the globe to share their creative output, challenges and product reviews, while promoting the viability of vintage cameras and film through frequent give-aways and exchange programs. In addition to the Film Photography Podcast Internet Radio Show, the Film Photography Project network of imprints includes the FPP Flickr Page, YouTube Channel, Facebook Group, Twitter Account, newsletter and the Film Photography Project Store.
