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
