Purpose Of This Blog – film or digital photography



By John Kasinger

Purpose of this blog

I will mostly post about film photography of which I am still heavily involved.  I do only black and white film.  All my color is digital.  I process film 3 to 5 times a week.  Sometimes it is 35mm.  Sometimes 120 and sometimes 4 x 5.

Everything posted in this blog is my opinion after almost 50 years as a professional photographer.  I have used many camera systems over those years.  Some have given much better results than others.  I am sure that some of your opinions will differ from mine.

I do a lot of experimenting with film and developer combinations of which there will be many postings.

I love Contax, Minolta, Hasselblad, Linhof and Canon digital.  My favorite roll film developer is Acufine diluted 1:1 and used as a “one shot” developer.  My favorite 4 x 5 film developer is Rodinal diluted 1:100 and  used as a “one shot”.  These are some of my favorites but I am constantly challenging them.  You will see these challenges in the blog entries to come
