View From Above

Film Image- July 2015.  Kodak T-MAX 100, Mamiya 645e camera body, Sekor 45 mm F2.8 C S lens

The summer of 2015 has been the year of film for me.  I purchased a medium format Mamiya which produces a 6x4.5 cm negative with 120 roll film.  What do I like the most about film?  With each emulsion, I feel like I'm shooting a totally different camera.  Just think if we could swap sensors in our digital cameras!  So far, my favorite film stock has been Kodak Portra 160 for outside and 400 for inside, but I've also been exploring black and white photography.  I use Dodd Camera to process my film, and scan it with the Epson V600. 

Why all this film use?  Well, it is really fantastic, but I have the folks at the Film Photography Project to blame.  If you haven't listened to their podcast, now is the time to start if you have any interest whatsoever in getting your old film cameras up and running again.
