So where was I with my film project... Oh yeah I remember. I am spending the next year shooting on medium format (120 size film) black and white film. It took a few rolls for me to get my sea legs back under me and get good exposures. Now I am deciding on which cameras to use. All of these were from a recent outing in my town with my FUJI GW690 (6x9 rangefinder camera) I am thrilled with the tonality and feel the images are getting on film. I am getting closer to having something to print out. I may even experiment and print a few out at home and then send them to the lab.
There is a completely different rhythm to shooting on film. A slower and more thoughtful pace. I think this comes from only getting 8 frames per roll. I am just about ready to start photographing New York City on film. It is my plan to go into the city once a week to look for interesting places and people to photograph.
I also have a few rolls I shot on 6x4.5 film. They will have to wait until I finish getting prints printed and framed that I am hanging for a show on Saturday.
Keep Makin' Art!
