So the camera collecting has started to slow down a bit, aside from some lenses, the camera bodies I would like to acquire have been greatly minimized…… for now. Over the past few months, I have been debating which medium format camera would best suite my wishes. more “First 2 rolls with the Mamiya RZ67”

I can’t believe I haven’t developed film since 2001. Such a waste of life by not staying with photography all the way. Ever since I picked film photography back up, I have been taking my rolls to the local film labs. I recently started to gather the items necessary to keep all of that work at home, ranging from a bulk roll of Ilford HP5 film to a negative scanner. All of the necessary items have not been collected, but I managed to use a friends setup to get a jump start. more “Film Developing”
It’s been about a year since I’ve started working more with portraits, Naomi was one of the first friends I managed to practice on. This shoot was set up for me to practice with some back lighting and tight cropping, just a few of the many problem areas I find in my portraits. It’s a bit over whelming when I think of all the things that need to be worked on, so I try to keep it down to 1 or 2 things to pay attention for.
