Man following his creations

by JPW in People

"Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression." [by Isaac Bashevis Singer, 1902-1991, american novelist, winner of the Nobel Prize in literature in 1978]

This was one of my first shots with my Pentax MV1, using a ASA 200 film. It was taken in 2004.

      Hmmm... It's an old shot, can't remember what film I've used, but probably was a Kodak or Fujifilm, I usually used one of those! :)

      Thanks for the feedback!

      Id love to know. please check out /analogphotography too! I am in search of a good standard cheap film. I enjoy shooting expired slide films, and I also develop them at home. black and white, i have not settled on a clear favorite, and I only recently became involved in shooting medium format. trix is my favorite classic emulsion so far...but i tend to like ilford delta in t-grain films. i use acufine, caffenol and tmax developers, currently.

      Ok, I'll try to find out the negatives to see what film I've used, but I can't promise to find it, because nowadays I usually shot only in digital, especially for economic and quickness reasons! :)

      I understand...film is quite time consuming...but very little compares to the tonality and the 'look'... i think its worth it, but then again, im not working against a deadline. :)

      Yes, I agree that film still has "the magic" and the excitement to see the results, but digital really makes some works faster and easier to have the work done! :)

      I have to try someday doing some experiments with expired film combined with pinhole! :)

      sounds interesting. i have a brownie twin 20 that is basically a 'caveman advanced' pinhole. :) I'd love to see what you come up with!

      The pinhole I own was bought some time ago, it's a kit for kids to learn the basics of Photography! :D I haven't try it out yet, but I hope soon I can manage to have some spare time to go make some experiments! ;)
