We're shooting with a 4x5 film camera. At first I wasn't too thrilled about it. I mean, I thought we were finished with film? Now we have to go back to it? Don't get me wrong, film was fun. It really makes you slow down and appreciate the art of photography. But developing is a pain in my you-know-what. If I never have to see another dark room it will be too soon. But once I got my hands on this 4x5 camera, it was love. I felt like a pro with my head under the dark cloth and looking at my subject as it appeared upside down on the glass. For a lack of better word -- it was COOL!
Tomorrow we begin shooting our first assignment with the 4x5. Something about a chair and dressing it up... Either way though, it's going to be neat. I'll try to remember to share the results.
Wish me luck!
