I shoot film from a range of manufacturers; these include Kodak, Ilford, Fuji and Foma. Unfortunately some of the film I loved is no longer produced, I had my favorites from Efke and Agfa, where I could shoot at 25 ASA. Now my film speeds range from 100 ASA to 400 ASA and as I process my own I can speed up or slow down these as required, generally speaking I stick with the standards however when shooting in available dark I have pushed my film to 3200 ASA!
So despite the march of the digital revolution where many professional photographers have become machine operators guided by an assistant with a laptop, I have stuck with my craft, which extends to printing my work in a range of sizes on genuine silver-gelatin paper stock. I tend to print from 8x10 up to 20x24 inches and again I source my paper from far and wide, having favorites from Germany, England, Japan and the Czech Republic.
Why stick with film, paper and chemistry? I am in full control of my artistic output; the quality and results are mine. I have lovely tangible and tactile things like negatives and not potentially unreliable hard drives, memory sticks or discs. And best of all I have to wait to see the results, sorry no instant gratification here!
