Camera Love

I came to photography through a Project 365 in 2011.  I began with my camera phone, then used a Kodak EasyShare, and eventually acquired a Canon DSLR.  Flickr was the home for my project, and one of my contacts, the extraordinary Amanda Raney, is an avid film photographer.  When I began feeling restless and stale…

What camera to use?

Like many other film photographers, I to seem to need to buy a new camera quite often. And I have to admit, that I have a wish list that are too long, and it keep growing. So camera wise I will keep my options open. I will however narrow my film use to only 120…
