    Shocked by the quality of analog photography

    Just wanted to share: A photographer who shoots almost all digital, recently shot a bunch of stuff with an old Rollei TLR, and was (pleasantly) shocked at the quality. Just goes to show, if you don't use it, you lose it.

    I was recently asked "what ink are you using?" I replied Ilford Multigrade.

    I've talked with a few local shooters and have heard similar statements.
    I hope to see and believe there will be (more of) a resurgence in film in the coming years.

    ...and they probably thought you were talking about an engine oil!

    Variation number 1.

    When I moved from 35mm to my first MF (A Yashica TLR) I was also (pleasantly) shocked at how big a difference there was. There is no turning back from this journey ...

    Opportunity Knocks

    While out photogrphing in NYC two days ago I was approached by a gentleman who teaches at a local high school. He asked me if I might be interested in teaching a class there. I said yes and he called me back after he spoke to the pricipal;seems we have the green light. This is a great opportunity for me to share my knowledge and my love photography with a new generation.

    That's great Peter!

    Variation number 2--

    I was at an exhibition of 19th-century photographs a couple of years back and overheard someone say, "boy, with all our fancy electronic cameras, we really aren't doing anything better than they did a hundred years ago."

    old cameras+ new technology

    The older TLR's and the new films like acros100 +APX100 are just the cats meow. Your right David-but it's always going to be the image; then hopefully printed on fiber paper.

    Had a similar question recently,

    What printer are you using?

    Reply, Bessler for that one

    Oh, what sort is that, ink jet?

    Reply, Na, silver and light

    Strange look from questioner

    Explained what it was, was told it could not have been as the print was to good.......

    Smiled and gave up.
