A giant step back in time …
.. well it is for me. After many years happily embracing digital photography I have begun to yearn for what in my eyes is the more characterful look of my old film images. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with digital imagery. One can achieve amazing results and its convenience is unquestionable, but on occasions those results can be just too clinical for the subject matter. No amount of digital filtration or chicanery can successfully replicate the look of film.
I have therefore taken the ‘bold’ step of purchasing a Leica M6TTL to supplement my digital cameras. Time will tell if that is a rash move or inspirational.
A completely wet process is not possible for me but I will be processing my own film before scanning and editing and printing with my existing setup.
Interesting times ahead.
