Artist's Description

An interesting conversation was brought up between myself and dbernadette.
The sunny 16 rule was the subject of debate. There is a story that most know about the time when Ansel Adams was photographing “Moonrise over Hernandez” while driving through New Mexico.
He had forgotten to bring a light meter with him before he decided to use the foot candle method in order to reach an acceptable exposure for his shot. He only had a chance to make a couple of exposures before the clouds covered the moon.
We were speaking about the years of experience that I might have gather while applying both rules. I then admitted to her that the rules while working with digital had given me better leverage in order to reach a proper exposure and most people who shoot RAW or NEF have to admit to themselves that some photographers have become sloppy. Myself included.
The digital world has allowed me not to become so absorbed with the technical aspects of photograph but more on the artistic side of it.
This is why we both will soon be making a switch back to film.
My Canon F1 and the Pentax K1000 to be exact. My film of choice is Technical Pan iso 25 b/w film.
This will limit exposures to 36 images per roll and a return to the basic fundamentals of proper exposure, composition, use of apertures and shutter speed. But, most importantly force the decision making process or visualization of the final image.
We both came back with a combined total of 2224 images where I would have normally have brought 20 rolls of film and shot 720 images.
Of which only 25% may have been usable.
We will discover over the coming months what this will produce.
