Curator Note: THE ONGOING ART PROJECT OF LIFE: To those who have visited in the past, you might notice I've been shooting more black and white film lately. The primary reason for this is I've begun developing my own film again, starting with black and white. Eventually I'll add color chemistry, but for now, at least temporarily, the joy of shooting and developing my own film again has taken over as more rewarding than shooting color and sending it to the lab. More color to come - but black and white is what I have loaded in most of my cameras these days.
Also, this gallery began as one specific to the F6. But over the years I've added other cameras that are fun to shoot in their own right. So this gallery now contains images from various other 35mm film cameras. The important point really is more the contents of the photograph preserved forever on film - and less the camera used to record it.

I love that you keep updating your portfolio with 35mm images, especially ones taken with your F6. I am still learning about the different emulsions, both print and transparency. I really benefit when you list the type of film used as I can learn what each film stock looks like.
Thanks for continuing to shoot film. I get inspired each time I return.

Congratulations for share your Impressive work. Your film captures + scan process got the soul of the light.
I am stepping off the digital merry-go-round where each camera is instantly rendered obsolete by the next model. I get better quality photos in most situations on film. "Blowing the highlights" just never happens and there is a velvet texture to prints from fine-grain film that I prefer. I just want to take photos, not to be confused by hundreds of menu items nor waste hours post-processing RAW files.
As a walk-around camera I need more focus points and a stronger body than my N75. I also need an option for genuine high-speed bursts of two or three shots at the right instant for air shows. The answer for me will be an F6 with the battery grip.
So long as Kodak keeps making Ektar and Portra 400 I won't be buying another digital paperweight. Your site has helped me make this decision. Thanks!
