Forgive me if this topic has been covered elsewhere, I've been doing research on the forum and haven't found a topic like this. I've been feeling a little odd lately, like my mind is trying to sort itself out. I might ramble a bit but I'm trying to explore a topic. I wish I could afford to shoot film like digital. 15 years ago, burning through 20 rolls of 35mm in a short weekend wouldn't get a second thought. Now things are different, yet I can't help sometimes get ahead of myself when shooting film. I think the problem for me is that while I grew up on film, I also learned digital. Somehow those trappings of instant society are encroaching on my film shooting the smaller the format. 4x5 and larger takes time no matter what, and while you can be careless, It's not the same as firing off quick shots with my rangefinder, flipping the film advance like is a habit, not thinking to check the aperture when you walk back inside. Crap, 1/50 f22 is not going to work well in this restaurant. I think the most automatic camera I own is my Yashica GSN. The interesting thing is I find myself shooting slower on my digital camera, not ever using the display (Canon G12 with viewfinder diopter!). I own one digital camera and perhaps it has ruined the way I shoot 35mm. Or perhaps in my mind, I am blurring the lines of how to deal with the medium. I find I force myself to slow down, write every little detail down for each frame. But that's not really fun when you're out with friends and you want to "shoot film like digital". Should I leave the film at home when out and about? I would feel worse about something happening to my $500 digital camera than something happening to my $10 Yashica. I do however treat both with the same respect. How do you feel about the way you shoot small formats?
