Trying a slight panoramic crop of some Yangshuo pictures. I really do like the panoramic format. I should get an x-pan…

I have always loved boats. One day, I would love to live on a boat.

My Love Affair

I have a love affair with film grain. I think it adds to a photo. I think that is the reason why I have yet to really grasp other formats of photography. I have had medium format cameras and currently have a 4×5 in addition to my Leica. I am having fun with the 4×5 but never got along with the medium format cameras. I like that when I shoot with my Leica I get grain. I love landscapes shot on long lenses with 400 speed 35mm film. It is a radical departure from what most people strive for and what camera makers are telling you what makes a good picture.

Thanks, I’ll stick to my small cameras.

I have been enamored with simple and clean Large Format photos lately. Maybe I am getting sick of living in a megacity like Beijing, I don’t know. I wish it was a bit warmer though so I could load up my 4×5 kit and go hiking in the mountains. That is something I really don’t do enough of. I need to change that…

Colour!

A little bit of a departure for me. Here is some colour shots from my trip. I am not against shooting colour, I just don’t do too much of it. I find shooting colour more difficult that shooting B&W. Everything needs to be more precise or the image lacks punch. I hope I was able to get some punch in these shots.
