I was very happy to strumble across this site as I was doing research into whether I was going to dive back into 'analog' or 'chemical' photography.
I realized after beginning to scan all my old fire negatives with a decent scanner (CoolScan IV) that as much progress as has been made in technology, when shooting digital it seems you're thinking about everything except what you're shooting. TMI floating through your head.
So after a bit of soul searching I decided that if I wanted to up my game in my landscape stuff I should seriously consider medium format. Looking through fleaBay only heightened my desire, seeing the prices of Hassy's and other great cameras. I'm awaiting delivery of a Fuji 645, and now will bide my time on a Hasselblad or other boat anchor.
I live in North Central Massachusetts and don't have to travel far for decent photo ops (my back yard abuts at least a few hundred acres). In fact I have a gallery on my website titles "Within a Mile of Home" which is stuff shot damn near my house.
Having spent plenty of time in a darkroom and having hand printed color, that is a possibility for the future.
Keep up the good work and the great threads. I'll try to keep my electrons to myself until I start shooting again in the chemical realm.
