Creation through limitation..

Last week I dusted off my 6/17 panoramic and ventured out into the desert. It's probably been 5 or 6 years since I used the mighty Art Camera. It a huge thing, but thankfully can be hand-held thanks to a few modifications and big arms. 
Its easy to forget the joys of shooting film and it took a little while to slip back into that way of thinking, especially with this camera which uses a large format lens and has 5 things to remember before taking a shot.
I had forgotten the sense of achievement you feel when shooting film, and of course the anticipation of getting back those films. But of course then comes the scanning and dust removal which brings you back down to earth...Still well worth the efforts of feeling like a proper photographer though
