Photography the traditional way

Back in the days before digital cameras, you needed to load film into a camera in order to take snapshots. And, if you wanted to take the art to the next level, you developed your own film in a dark room. Nowadays, digital imaging replicates many of the effects that you once needed special chemicals to create. But it is important to recognize that these digital effects only mimic the real thing.

On tomorrow’s CO Morning Show, contributor Marcy McCann speaks to Charlottesville’s Richard Pippin about his photographic art that uses these traditional methods. To listen to the interview, click the play button below.
