Provia 400x on the Diacord G.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending a workshop lead by David Hilliard. Great guy, fantastic work, and a good teacher; the weekend was quite enjoyable and informative. I came out of this weekend with a stronger sense of where I’m going, photographically.
I also know that the long-term plan doesn’t involve the Diacord G or L, sadly. Both let me down during the photo shoot that lead to this image – the L’s film counter stopped advancing and the G’s film advance is now advancing too far (which caused me to lose 6 shots – argh). I’ll be repairing both but the writing’s on the wall; while I love shooting with these cameras, they can’t take the abuse that I’m dishing out. Which isn’t terribly surprising. They’re both 53 years old and I’m not only taking them *everywhere*, but also shooting with them a *lot*.
So for the moment, I’m shooting with my 5D which feels like a big let-down; I was terribly unhappy with the exposures I got from it today, as I’m now spoiled by the dynamic range of film. Ah well.
