Film of choice to shoot through the ’Blad.

I know it sounds like a boring choice, but I shoot mostly B&W with the ‘Blad, so I predominately shoot Ilford HP5 because I know its characteristics and exactly how to process it in my darkroom to get the results I want.

Aaaaaaand now I want to go play cameras.

NERD ALERT: do you like physics? Do you like photography?

If so, you should pick up the December issue of Scientific American and read the feature article “The Case of the Disappearing Daguerreotypes”, which is all about how my colleague Ralph Wiegandt teamed up with a physicist at the University of Rochester to discover the secrets behind the deterioration of silver-plate photographs at a nano scale.

SCIENCE!

I already have a fully-formed story outline for what is happening in this photo.
Psssst.. hey BBC? Call me.
