    DR5 is a great way to get B&W slides like the old Scala film. I haven't used their service for some years, but those slides on a lightbox are really cool! At $15 a roll to develop, it definitely makes you focus on getting it right in one shot. I have been planning to get back into film but using a Ricoh GRiii is just too easy atm. This site formerly Apug is a fun one to geek-out on.

    I definitely hear ya on that. I have no problem shooting a ton of digital images without giving it much thought, but that's kind of the problem. When I'm done, I have a ton of digital images that look like I didn't put any thought into them.

    When I shoot my 4x5, I am happy with a third to half of the photos I take and will print them. With a digital camera, that is closer to 1/200.

    That being said, I went out today and got a new little digital camera, because something I will actually take with me is a far more effective tool than the fancy pants stuff I leave in a case at home. At least for now.

    Both on instagram.

If the current forecast holds, we're looking at the lowest snowpack in at least the last 30 years according to today's Wasatch Weather Weenies post." - frosted flakes
