Welcome to episode 140 of photography insights and I’m your host Andrew Walmsley. This is the show that interviews people, artists, models and photographers from around the world. Today we pop across to the west of America and talk with Carol Golemboski.
Carol teachers alternative processes at the University of Colorado in Denver. Not only that but she is an artist in her own right with some interesting projects. One of the projects is based on anthotypes and its another old process that uses the sun. You will hear about her passion for the analogue world including the darkroom to produce her work. Another piece of Carol’s work we talk about is based around magic using processes like photograms. We finish talking about an app she created to showcase her “psychometry” project on magic related anitques.
In this one we discuss:
- energy & rewards teaching
- teacher questions
- boiling emulsions
- remote teaching
- lumen prints
- re-using products
- emulsions from organic materials
- exposing fruit
- photographing antiques

Please don’t forget i’ve launched the KO-FI donation page. All donations mean a lot to me, i’m trying to blog and experiment with so many more things like cyanotype and lith printing. I can only do this with funds, so please do help, every £1 means so much.

Thanks to Steve at Chroma for lending me more kit for testing! I’ve been using a pixlator with an adaptor Steve’s built to hold his LCD light. This allows an all in one device to illuminate your negatives by using the pixlator (whether DSLR scanning or Filmlab on your phone). Find out more at https://chroma.camera

My latest article is now live on my website and is called a darkroom session with Jay and Paul. It’s about teaching my friends this older way of printing your work using creative techniques. We had a lot of fun and it was great to see both of them working away and create work they are proud of.

Carol was going on a trip but managed to get these examples over before she left – which is really appreciaetd.
