As I researched the Nikon F3, right away titles with words like the greatest SLR ever made, Legendary, and Classic all jumped out at me. This was interesting to me because I'd come across similar titles when researching the F2. In my view these two cameras are very different.

I love film and film cameras, so my Fuji X-T4 is mainly used for my Youtube channel, but it is a beautiful machine and I would like to utilize it more. Recently, I have been on the hunt to get a prime lens, especially to use once our baby is here. Based on my findings,… Continue reading 3 Fuji XF Lenses You Should Try

In this Developing Adventure, I developed a roll of Cinestill Double-X in D96 B&W Motion Picture Developer. I shot it with my Mamiya 645 at ISO 200. If you read my last Developing Adventure featuring Double-X film, you'd know I really fell in love with the look of this film. At over $10 a roll… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Double-X in D96
Shortly before we moved I was contacted by the company that makes the BenQ e-reading Lamp to see if I would be interested in trying out their lamp in my photography workflow. In exchange for an honest review here on my website I could keep the lamp. Usually I would've said no to this because… Continue reading The BenQ e-Reading Lamp – Getting back into the Film Flow
