    How much do you shoot a year? LF & ULF

    Hi all,

    Just curious what people's consumption of large film is like. I'm new to 810, but have gone through about 120 sheets in 6 months. How much film do you go through in a year?

    WOW, that's a bunch compared to me. I think the most I've done in one year is 80-something sheets. This year has been a bad one for new images, and its down to less than 30.

    Depends upon the year. Frankly, I don't count.

    You're shooting 20 sheets per month. Good for you.

    There are days when I shoot nothing; and then there are days I can shoot 20 sheets or more. Depends on my inspiration.

    I think the better question is how often are we inspired to shoot in 6 months?
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    hi gb ...

    while i have an 8x10 and 11x14 camera
    i mostly shoot 4x5, 5x7 and roll film.
    i shoot a few hundred sheets a year of 4x5 easy,
    maybe 100 sheets of 5x7 ...
    sheets of paper in the bigger --- -- film is expensive for those beasts,

    PHmaster,

    I'm actually doing closer to 30-35, depending on the month. The first couple of months were spent getting used to the gear and eliminating technical problems. Now that that's done, I'm letting her rip! Getting tray processing down was a big step for me, especially when coming back w 12-14 seets that I just have to see printed!

    About 50 5x7 and 4x5 sheets this past year. I haven't had that many opportunities to get out and expose film, but plan on being more active in the new year.

    I shoot about 1000 sheets of 4x5 Ektachrome annually (for my photography business), and I shoot about 2000-2500 sheets of b/w in LF and ULF annually for my personal projects. (4x5, 5x7, 8x10, 11x14 combined) heavily tilted towards 5x7 at the moment. I shot 50 sheets last tuesday on one outing of 5x7.

    For 4x5 I only use readyloads, TMX100, about 70 - 100 sheets per year.

    I used about 100 sheets of 8x10 last year... kinda disappointing when you think about it.
    My goal for 08 is 300 shots. I only expect to get about half a dozen really good shots in a year but a I hope the 6 are better next year because of the time in the field.
    My goal for roll film is 52 rolls. Mostly portraits.
