I agree - the old technology is not going to die out is it?
The medium has far more substance than digital. Call me old fashioned but I do prefer hard copy!
and developing your own film will remain a magical experience.
Have you tried the 3d cameras that you can buy in art galleries?
they have a strange effect, and the fish eye lens on Building subjects.
The zoom lens I realise was a waste of time - ok for detail I suppose but my wide angle and standard lenses remain favorites.
I never use a tripod though, I prefer to be the tripod, it is much more involving, more creative and less frustrating! :0)
lighting conditions - what is your favorite time of the day/year to take those extra magical pics, you know the ones where you can't quite explain the quality!
My father likes the 180mm lens too
What film do you prefer to use?
I like the grainy appearance of the 400 b&w
Colour, depending on light I love 50 slide film - I took this to NY this summer the results are cliched but good!
For portraiture I love my medium format camera, it may be old and not very technologically advanced but it produces excellent results.
You are v.lucky having a slide/film scanner -use it!
PS who is your favorite photographer?
Mine is Man Ray
