My shooting has been more than a little random over the past few weeks. In truth, subject matter hasn’t been of paramount importance, I’ve been much more concerned with getting to grips with my ‘new’ old Pentax film camera and its gradually increasing lens arsenal, trying to evaluate, usually by direct comparisons, when and where their use might give me real benefits over digital, plus decide on some form of plan for where I want to move photographically in the coming months and what gear I should limit myself to using.
Lots to think about…
Thankfully I’m getting to the stage of feeling (relatively), physically and technically comfortable with the ‘new’ gear, (and with film itself), and can hopefully stop spending so much time considering ‘the process’ and start concentrating on more important things, especially the ‘What?’ & ‘Why?’….
In the meantime, this ‘testing’ process has thrown up some real variety, and, though I’ve been swimming rather than paddling in the waters of cliché, I’m content enough with some of the results to shove’em on the blog….
It ain’t ART….. but some of it’s pretty enough.
