View Full Version : Hello from England

14-Sep-2016, 13:46

I have recently dusted off my Horseman45FA , unused for 5 years after a foray into digital ( Canon 5D Mk2 ).

I have recently made a couple of images with the canon and yearned for the 5x4 Ilford Delta negative which would have been so so lovely.

So, I am back with a 25kg backpack with both the Canon and the 5x4 gear in it and cant wait to get back into a purer discipline.

I have learnt a lot using the Canon and have had the freedom to experiment .

I now photograph "light" and not "subjects " and it has taken a couple of thousand exposures to understand this , something I could not afford to do with LF.

Cant wait !

Welcome back to large format and film. I too have found digital photography a great learning tool, and a route back to film.

25kg? Leave the Canon at home...that should get you down to about, err, 24kg? ;)
