I recently picked up a (used, but in good condition) Hasselblad film camera. Always wanted one … the price on older film models is now within my reach.
Film? Yes. I find that occasionally shooting film helps concentrate your mind on the image and slows the pace. With the cost of a single image being what it is, you want it to have the correct exposure to match your vision of the image. It’s good practice. Sometimes I use my DSLR to check the exposure settings. But using a light meter helps with the mental concentration part.
This is a scan of the negative. The image is of a dying madrone in my front yard. WIth some salal, oregon grape and rhody mixed in.
Fall is the time for Amanita Muscaria. I knew someone who ate them for their pyschoactive properties… but it is classified as poisonous. Cooking reduces its toxicity, but also reduces the pyschoactive nature. Better to stick with a nice glass of wine.
