Like I said, a Bighorn Sheep in a Tinaja. Here it is a bit wider and in color for context. That is debris on the water surface, not a dirty sensor. The rest of the carcass is top left of image, you can see a bone there from the severed neck. Found last Sunday on a remote hike in the Eagletail Mountains.

Not nearly as much fun as the Enterprise chasing a Klingon vessel in front of a galactic wavefront...

Thanks. We’ll see.

Yes. Much easier. I’ve gotten spoiled making B&W images from digital files. Going back to film would be complicated, and more demanding. I’d be learning all over again. There is some appeal to that.

I too have drifted away from film, but not entirely. I have some B/W film in the freezer that I break out occasionally. Developing it is still fun. Printing, well, I scan negatives now from 35mm, 120 up to 4x5. I've dabbled with coffee development, it actually works! Anyway, there's fun to be had yet in old fashioned film work.
Should add, if you are at all interested in rekindling your film side, hang out at the APUG forum. Great source.

Thanks for that tip. I actually started a new thread, asking for website recommendations. I’m considering a hybrid approach with film, scanning and digital printing, similar to what you’re doing. I don’t have the desire to make wet prints anymore.

This is just my opinion but I think the hybrid approach is missing the point. Like using tape to record music and then publishing to MP3; misses the best part of the package.

There is a lot of creative juice left in analog imaging. If you've never built a pinhole camera and exposed paper you should try it.

I am in my late 60's and worked in film photography as a creative outlet and a business for about 30 years. I do not miss the mess and tedium of a darkroom. What I miss is the anticipation, I miss the joy when a chance shot shows up hours at the soonest or, more usually, days later and it looks great. The biggest problem with digital imaging is the lack of pain when you screw up. Most of the time with digital you can chimp the picture and if it doesn't work you shoot it over if you can, or you pray and spray like a demon. With film you generally didn't know about the failure until well after a second chance is gone and plus it costs real money to find out. Film makes you a lot more disciplined about the basics of planning a shot.

That said, my photographs I personally enjoy are far, far different than my film work. My film work was very mainstream and, looking back, unimaginative. Digital pictures can be very liberating especially with a P&S (for me - I think I tend to use a DSLR a lot like I use a film camera). The limit imposed by the simplicity of a P&S (like my Pixel phone) is creative take off for me.

I'm blessed to have a friends excellent dark room to work in when i want. Since most of my digital is using manual settings and focus that part takes the same creativity as my film cameras. I do like processing film but digital can just get me there quicker (my time is stretched as it is) and the digital plug-in effects available give me as much/more creative latitude in processing as alt processing with film and again quicker.

more importantly to me….it’s less about the equipment (film/digital, medium format, 35mm, phone etc) and more about the discipline of photography that has me going out and seeing what i find or a thoughtfully arranged photo shoot. As an aside i don’t feel i would like it as my job as that would bring less freedom into it.

I took exactly one paid gig some years back... and swore never again.
$50 and instead of enjoying my weekend with my camera I had a ****ty second job and for less than minimum wage at that.
And even then, the customer was still b***y about the cost.

Two buildings in different locations in Jaco Costa Rica. The first is at in a supermarket parking lot, the second is at a bank. I suspect they are both by the same architect.

I get my next photos out in the mountains, nothing in my neighborhood is as photogenic. My rule has always been not to look at the photos until I get home. (I can watch the back of the camera as I expose them, but not look through the collection.) Mostly I do this because I want to enjoy my trip, and I usually don't have a way to recharge the camera battery while I'm out. But you just described something else I get out of it, there anticipation.

I'm maybe a little retrogrouchy about photography, though. I only have prime lenses, and I use a tripod, I like how it slows me down and makes everything more deliberate.
