6x6 vs 35mm (again)
I read a number af threads over the different photography fori's over the past period oftime on the difference between 120 and 35mm cameras. I use both, and obviously my 6x6 turns out the brighter, crispier and nicer negatives and prints... but is this a reason to increase 6x6 shooting as opposed to 35mm ... I have asked myself that and come up with the conlusion that for my type of shooting a 35mm is top, I love the tri-x / D-76 grain, I love the responsiveness of my "little" nikon, I actually like the "blur" of larger enlargments, it is certainly more atmospheric than the clean cut 6x6 es I shoot, it's so easy to shoot a sharp picture with the right equipement but although the end result is technicallly very good it lacks the personality of a 35mm shot, if sharpness is required shoot digital and photoshop the blasted thing and subsequently turn your image into a hairsharp, unnaturally coloured disney-land sort of picture of which 1000's are shot every day ... for images with character I use my beloved 35mm ....
having been a real fan of MF cameras over the past 3 years, I am coming back on that .... any others that went through similar experiences ?
