Sessions with Mary :: Clipper Mill Studio
I had a session in the studio recently and thought I’d snap a few with my Pentax 645 film camera for fun. It’s a whole different ball of wax with a manual focus lens. I have to slowwww down and be much more thoughtful. I have to think and devise and intuit a little bit more. Even then I may miss the moment, which is gut wrenching. But, a former photo editor used to use football analogies when I was kicking myself about missing a moment. Sighting that even the greatest players in the league missed key plays at important moments – they learn from it and move on.
It’s back to Photo 101 with the 645. But, I like that. It keeps me real.
