A few months ago I got my hands on a Mamiya RB67 and some T-MAX 400. I hadn't shot film since my first photography class in college, roughly 8 years ago. I decided that slowing down my process and making every shot count could be a worthwhile challenge. Now, before you think I went on a shooting rampage, remember that every shot cost money (film + developing + scan). I shot conservatively. In fact, due to becoming incredibly busy, I was only able to shoot two rolls.
But in those two rolls, I discovered a love for an analog and mysterious process. I also found a reignited love for digital.
"Digitial is so easy, it's almost cheating"
Yeah, but it's still much more efficient than shooting film. So, with that I'm going to invest in my Fuji system even more and push what I can do through the digital format. At the same time, I think I'll still wait and find the right medium format system and possibly begin developing my own negatives and scanning them to make the process even more magical.
If you have memories shooting film, or are even still exposing those silver crystals, let me know about it in the comments!
Until next time...
