All but one of todays photos were taken with the venerable Kodak DCS Pro Back 645M. It’s a discontinued image making monster capable of producing some of the most film-like files I have ever seen come out of a digital camera. It’s not the fastest camera out there. In fact, it’s downright glacial in its pace of taking photographs. But this causes me to also slow down in my image taking, and gives me pause to think about what it is I am trying to capture. I’m sure the great medium format Mamiya glass adds a lot to the image quality, but the sensor of the Kodak back itself must be given due credit.
For those of you in the local Yokosuka/Yokohama area, you may be interested in a photo club I recently started. You can check it out here: www.meetup.com/YokoYoko/
This new photo club will not be taking the place of the Tokyo Camera photo club I have belonged to for years. Rather, it is a way to get people on the Miura Peninsula/Yokohama area who are interested in photography together without having to make the trek up to Tokyo.
We have had two meetup events so far, and any member of the club can organize a gathering. So if you are interested, then sign up and plan a day pf photo shooting.
