Just one of those Photos I like…

As I sat on the edge of a field last Thursday morning, watching the sun rise through some clouds and running a test roll through the newly acquired Nikon F3, it dawned on me.  No buttons.  No thumbwheels.  No white balance.  No metering mode.  No menus.  No lcd readouts.  No distracting little screen on the back.  No auto focus.  No brackets in the viewfinder.  No image sizes.  No file formats.  No advance mode.  Just load your roll of film, turn the aperture to your f-stop and dial in your shutter speed up top.  It was simple, it was pure.  It was photography with the freedom from all that photography stuff.

That test roll is going out to process today – when it gets back I’ll post my favorite one here.

Here it is – my favorite from the first test roll of Kodak Portra 800…

Beauty and simplicity, two things I love about the outdoors.  I see this tree every Sunday evening as I drive home from dinner at my mother’s house.  I sometimes will slow down to admire it during my drive, but this particular evening, the light was just right.  I had to stop.

Images like this are what continue to motivate me to shoot all of my own photographs with film.  The texture and depth are just gorgeous.  I made this photograph with my Nikon F5 loaded with Kodak Portra 400.
