Analogue Spotlight at TPS 2021

Analogue Showcase Returns to the Photography Show

By Molly Kate

Analogue Showcase (previously Analogue Spotlight) is back for a second year at the Photography Show in Birmingham this coming weekend. There are many exciting talks, exhibitors, and demonstrations coming up, so if you are free and have not signed up to go yet, you won’t want to miss this!

The show spans over three days this year, instead of the usual four, as Monday (the 19th) has been canceled because of the Queen’s funeral which will be held then. The organizers of the Photography show decided to cancel the day which they said was a mark of respect for the Queen.


Talks scheduled feature a variety of topics including camera rescue and repair, experimental photography, wet plate collodion and palladium printing processes, Ilford films, printing your work, self-portraits, and more! You can find the full schedule on the Photography Show website here.

About The Author

By Molly Kate
Photographer, writer, and CPA currently running a Youtube channel called Eclectachrome. I'm a huge fan of shiny new objects which makes writing news a perfect fit. Favorite cameras are often mechanical rangefinders, folders, and compacts and I love most film stocks. I enjoy developing and scanning my own film as well as printing in the darkroom when there's extra time!
