I started taking photographs with frequency in 2009. After riding the wave of digital technology I got tired of it. I found myself editing photographs to simulate film. It led me to the real thing, and for that I am glad. I still shoot digital images too, but film is my passion.
I took a 2 hour walk and took 3 images with my Crown Graphic 4 X 5. The shoreline image was taken with the Crown Graphic, the others with my Leica. Compared to the images of the shoreline scene taken with my digital camera the film image has much more dynamic range. For this image I used Kodak TMax 100…I enjoy the slow process shooting 4 X 5 film. The featured images is about 1/2 mile from King Phillip’s Chair. This post is for Phillip Rea, the king of his own growing brood…..
Hi I'm Martin Smith, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot solely film. I use black & white with the odd colour image thrown in and mainly use a Leica M4-2 & M3 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life. My film of choice now is Fomapan 100 Classic.
