In addition to holding down a busy job, I’m a panorama photographer in my spare time. I’m primarily based in Yorkshire, England. My images observe has advanced over greater than thirty years from 35mm movie, by way of a protracted interval utilizing solely massive format cameras and sheet movie and at last transitioning to digital cameras. When it comes to imaginative and prescient, there are two distinct sides to my work – the representational and the non representational – and I get pleasure from each.

Just below a yr in the past, I penned an article right here presenting my first impressions of the GFX Cambo Actus MV technical digicam. While it was partly a digicam overview, it was primarily concerning the significance of discovering and mastering a secure digital digicam system which aligns effectively to realising your imaginative and prescient. Over the following few months, I used to be in a position to get pleasure from a interval of sustained images with the digicam as I took a sabbatical from work visiting Wales, The Lakes, Scotland, Northumberland and Iceland. That point additionally included two photographic workshops.

The success of my shift to the Actus MV during the last 12 months has been pleasing, nevertheless it bought me pondering. It was time for a retrospective. Why was I feeling so good about my picture making and photographic improvement during the last yr in a approach that was much like my massive format heyday of 2009-2015. Equally, why do I dislike most of my output from the second I switched to digital in 2017 till final yr?

It dawned on me that I’ve made extra modifications within the final 12 months than simply swapping my digicam – I’ve lastly rebuilt the photographic course of I had operating in my movie days.
