I have chosen a medium format camera because a larger negative size (instead of 35ml) gives the images more 'room' and more detail. I am sure there is a technical term for it too. This is a square format too which is different to compose photographs with than rectangular formats. Shooting a square format felt right, more compact, more precice. There is just something about shooting from hip level rather than from eye level as well as having to compose the image the 'wrong' way around. It makes me more aware of elements around the image that I might have missed otherwise.
This camera is also fairly light to carry around and lens is made by Carl Zeiss. Sharp and no fuss.
Velvia100 120ml colour reversal film
This film is vibrant with good midtones and contrast. The aspects to keep an eye on is that it picks up the blue hues like nothing else. Come afternoon, even before that blue hour and there is blue, like electricity, in the negatives. And it is a bit slow. But I love it for its vibrancy.
If my Rolleiflex is my bae then this light meter is my partner in crime.
I photograph what is there. I aim to capture it, as I see it, not to edit it afterwards until it is unrecognisable. In a way I simply record or observe the world.
The light meter, obviously, measures the light which ( in order to get a good or correct exposure) determines the aperture and the shutter speed, the combination of which I choose. But that is about it for the creative part of taking photographs.
