once more with feeling...

 

these photos were taken at the same time as the ones below, except with a medium format film camera.  i'm still learning to work with the medium format. the fact that there are only ten exposures on a roll of film and the cost of developing it coupled with the non-instant gratification aspect makes the whole process feel so much more precious.  it's interesting to me to compare the results of the same photo as well. in addition to the fidelity of the image, the color temperatures are completely different [in this case owing to the fuji 100]. certainly this can be accounted for by color grading the digi version, but the coolness in the film feels much more vibrant here. i also quite like the aspect ratio of the medium format which lends itself to landscapes.

rip 50d

 

these photos were not taken with my 50d. sadly, it's pretty much dead. i don't really like to jizz over equipment, but i had a moment of silence for it as it was my trusty first dslr and it served me well under some pretty harsh conditions.  i have resurrected an old used 5d and am using that now. it's rather...eye opening. the uncropped sensor is a bit of a revelation for landscapes. and who knows, the extra weight may help me tone my guns in the long term. onwards then...
