WECC member and landscape photography enthusiast Nick Bedford has finally decided to jump into large format with an Intrepid 5x4 Mark III view camera.
An idea has been growing in my mind for a little while but I have tended to shrug it off as little more than inspired thinking due to some more personal reasons I'm working through outside photography. Yet the more I think about the film camera formats I own and the work I want to create along with the relative costs of certain gear, the more it is starting to make sense.
The notion of shooting serious landscape work on my digital cameras, now the Nikon D810, doesn't feel right these days. While it is an amazing camera for the task, I have grown to love the craft and process of shooting film and feel the lack of that physical craft when I use a digital camera for my personal work. It's the reason why I've been shooting experimental landscapes on my Rolleiflex and leaving the digital Nikon at home, despite the very obvious benefits.
