Day 81: Pathetic admission

Welcome to day 81 of 365. Over the last week I’ve started to come around to the idea that while infrared has been a fantastic medium that has consistently allowed me to basically craft my vision into an image, the resulting quality of photograph has been sub-par. I’m talking of things such as overall crispness, sharpness, contrast and noise. To that end I’m considering a completely dramatic move to 35mm black and white film using the old Olympus OM system. Shock. Horror. I have the camera in hand and film stock is on order. Watch this space!

    I think this is lovely. I don\'t know what you\'re worrying about.

    That\'s a fabulous move! Film is just so exciting for a multitude of reasons. I do think this is a fine picture and is much more dramatic than the previous perspective.

    David, I look at my photographs and all I can think is, \"I should be doing better than this.\" I know where I am, where I could be and where I can get to.
