Matt Payne Photography Blog: Switching From Digital To Film For Landscape Photography

January 29, 2020

Welcome to Episode 145 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast.

This week's episode features a large and medium format film photographer from western Kansas, Michael Strickland.

Michael transitioned from digital to film and hasn't looked back. He was featured in a really interesting Geekwire YouTube video showcasing why he made the switch, which really piqued my interest.

Michael and I covered a wide variety of topics this week, including:

  • Photographing panoramas using film.
  • Photographing the Great Plains.
  • Drum Scanning.
  • Portraying mood and emotion through photography.
  • Platinum Palladium prints.
  • and a lot more...

Over on Patreon this week, Michael gives us some tips on how to get started in film photography. Head over to for more info on how you can support the podcast and get bonus content at the same time.
