    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 https://www.photrio.com/forum/home 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.

    He's not the only one. @b7lab is a master at it and even has a mobile studio. I was lucky to meet him miles out in deep playa doing insane shit with his rig. Another buddy of mine who is a pro photog just dabbled into the heavy chem game this last week: @bankercinefoto

    Both on instagram.

    The end of film

    My dad sent me this pic a few weeks ago after he dusted off his old Nikon N2020.
