I used a 4x5 Graflex while going to undergraduate college (1966-1970). Made sports photos with it! My eyes & reflexes were much more accurate & quicker then. Every once in a while, I would forget to put the dark slide in before removing the exposed film as I got caught up with the emotions around during a game!
For my business, I've been 100% digital since 2004. But I'm getting into retirement mode, I will turn 64 in June, where are you Paul when I'm 64!
Thanks for letting folks sprinkle digital comments here along with our love for film. At APUG that's a no-no and I don't participate anymore.
My Coach, mentor and friend who I learned to base my photography was Monte Zucker. He's no longer with us and I miss his attitude, business acumen and photography style. My wife and I spent time with him when he lived in Sarasota Florida.
