A few weeks ago I did something I've been meaning to do for years: began developing my own black and white film again. After a 30+ year hiatus, the time had finally come. Developer, Stop and Fixer in amber flasks, ready for action. Up until last year I'd been [...]

Recently I read a blog post from someone claiming Mirror-Up shooting was a hoax. A waste of time, something camera manufacturers dreamed up as way to add a new feature to the camera and charge more for it. A "Emperor's New Clothes" hoodwink, if you will. Well, take a look [...]
