First of all, thanks for the opportunity. I’ve been featured on your website before with my bag (https://www.japancamerahunter.com/2013/08/in-your-bag-no-602-fernando-callo/). And when I read about this new section, I knew I had to send my film collection. So here it is, it’s a small one.
35mm: 11 Kodak Ultra 400, 8 Kodak Gold 200, 3 Fuji Sensia, 1 Ilford Pan 400 and 120mm: 4 Kodak Portra for my new medium format camera, a Yashica MAT TLR (the 4th film is actually on camera)

Here’s my film stash.
Part of the fun in shooting film is that you get to choose different look and feel every other day.
And to me that’s not done by moving sliders around in Lightroom.
So here’s a snapshot of my ever-changing collection.

This is some of my collection, the rest at my fridge.
Shooting film & digital.
But film is preferred to me due to its colors saturation, contrast, huge amount of info, after scanning you get at least 130 MB, When you increase color depth to 32 Bit / channel, you will talk about 500 MB per shot.
Rather,the dark room also is the real fun & experience dealing with chemicals, time, dilution, and looking forward to your film, what happened to it, waiting to dry .
Leave everything and run to scan it. it is really a great process, teach you how to Deliberate in taking shots, moving right & left, up and down to get the perfect position
Especially when you work with a pro film, you pay and act like a pro.
At the past, we were take one roll for: relatives wedding, school mates, week end walk, our bets & cars, our family new born .
Now : we take 3698 photos for our weekend trip only
Jolly good show, thanks guys.
