#616 ‘Tis the season

We’ve started shooting the spring/summer season for our art clients.

This spring I have continued a personal project of following streams-creeks-rivers in search of shooting locales. It’s fun, muddy and eye opening. I have spent a couple of weeks exploring by foot without cameras to find new shooting locations. The camera has just started coming out.

For this work I use medium and large format film cameras.

What? Why?

I am printing these guys big and, really, there’s little comparison between any digital slr and a 4×5 slide once it’s blown up big and inspected in fine detail.

Film is more challenging and an important part of the artistic process. Film slows you down and forces more precision. A few hours may produce 5-10 photos with 0-1 stunning success.
