So it is once more time to throw all overboard (almost).
I have decided to just shoot analog for the coming two years with regards to my landscape photo.
So I am now selling all my 645 Mamiya stuff + the P45+ back. It is not totally without remorse that I do this.
But I do it to make things harder for my self as I actually has become to comfortable with this digital solution.
I always try to make life harder for my self regarding my creative work. And it has always helped me on in my artistry.
When I bought my firs really good printer, the Epson 4800 I realized that about 90% of my photos I had to throw away because they was not technically good enough for printing at 17 inch.
Then I bought an Canon iPF8300 44 inch printer and immediately realized that I had to again throw away 90% of the remaning photos
That also made me buy one big and fat Gitzo tripod
And now to use 6x6, 6x12 and 4x5 and a little 8x10 for landscape. That means even fewer photos.
But that is ok, I only need one good photo per" photo day” to make me happy.
What happen after this two years I do not know. But I do keep my Mamiya RZD system with lenses and film backs and the adapter plate for digital backs i M-mount!
And I do have the two tilt shift lenses for this system to mitigate the departure of my Hartblei 45mm Tilt/Shift lens for the 645 system.
The Hartblei has become my absolute favorite lens for the 645 system.
So I would just want to say thank you all here that has helped me gain knowledge and skill in using the medium format system and using a digital back
Life is always so much simpler if you had the possibility to stand on the broad shoulders of others that has walked the samme path before you.
And there is a lot of those shoulders on this site!!!
But I will continue to pester you with analog photos
