Digging out the old vinyl records...
Much of my curiosity is fuelled by the idea of shots where I'm always trying to catch various depth of field effects, and really nothing replaces a large objective and larger format.
I love my Canon 5DMk2 of course, but there's just something so raw about shooting in analog.
Back in the late 80's I majored in Visual Communications and also studied a minor in photography at the ACAD. I had been taking photos since I was 12, and before I went to art college I had even considered it as a career as I spent a lot of time photographing my girlfriend at the time.
I spent a good portion of my studies in medium format when I went to college, shooting mostly on Mamyias and the odd Hasselblad. I spent two years at it, but never decided to take it on as a major. Somewhere along the line I lost the passion for it and for the most part never really shot a lot for years. During that time I always appreciated 4x5 and medium format work from photographers that I hired, but never picked it up again for some time.
These scans are not the greatest, but they're a quick preview of my latest return to medium format. I would love to get my hands on a digital medium format one day, but they are priced out of my reach (for now).
In the meantime, I also picked up a Mamiya M645 for a great deal with two lenses, and shot some colour shots with it and looking forward to how those will turn out. I will be uploading those and sharing them here on my blog when I review them.
I had taken some shots side by side with my Olympus Pen E-P3 with the TLR at the same time so it will be an interesting comparison to see how old technology matches up against newer technology.
