I’m a regular podcast listener and while listening to one about an inspiring photographer called Giles Duley (you’ll find it on the Small Voice podcast) earlier in the week, the thought came to me about photo scanning podcasts.
A pretty niche target admittedly, but before looking I guessed that I might find something. Hmmm. My first search was within the Overcast app – my current podcast player of choice on my 5S. Well, no joy following a quick search. Over to my iMac and Google and I discovered a couple of candidates.
Not podcasts dedicated to the process of scanning photos but photography podcasts that in an episode or two cover the topic.
First up there’s Derrick Storey’s podcast that includes 2/3 episodes you’ll find in his archives related to scanning.
Other episodes (and I’ve not listened to all these yet so can’t vouch for their quality) that include discussions on scanning include:
But photo scanning is like watching paint dry!
Is there a demand for podcasts about photo scanning? Who knows to be honest. Maybe I could start one! “Wouldn’t it be really boring?” I hear you say. Well, if every episode was just me rambling on about pixel resolutions, 6*4 photo prints and how to clean a glass platen, yes! But if the scope is widened a little (not sure what, yet) then perhaps it could be a viable subject. Maybe discussions and tips on scanning film or slides… I’d have to read up more on these subjects. Or find people to discuss it. Anyway, I’ll mull it over.
If you know of any scanning podcasts, or better still, you actually broadcast one, feel free to let me know in the comments or get in touch.
