Today is post #100 on the blog. Wow, I definitely didn’t think this would happen so fast, and the responses I have gotten have been overwhelming. I just passed 35,000 unique visitors yesterday, which is pretty amazing in my opinion. I guess that is, in some sense, the democratization of the Internet at work; there is no way I could get 35,000 people to look at my work had I hung it in some local gallery, or had a book made. So first off, I want to say thanks to all that have come to visit, taken the time to comment, and enjoyed my work enough to pass it on to others who might also enjoy my work. I really appreciate it.
Now, I know my posts are often disparate, and there can be times when there is little cohesion from day to day. Today is another one of those days. I thought I would post some shots that I have taken with my old Mamiya C220 TLR (twin lens reflex) camera. These photographs are all from my archives, but I think they fit together well as a set–I’d be curious to hear your thoughts, however. Shot with a variety of film, the photographs offer something unique while still holding together well. I enjoy shooting medium format, and just recently acquired a medium format SLR (single lens reflex) that I will be using a lot once I have some time–and good weather–to get out and shoot. For anyone looking to get into medium format film cheaply, I’d recommend the Mamiya line of TLRs. They are robust, offer some fantastic lenses, and best of all, can be had amazingly cheap.
I’d love to hear your thoughts down below!
