The tide is coming!
A Holga shot captured on the same evening I took a similar shot with my pinhole camera. I have a tendency to shoot the same or similar scene with several cameras at a time. It is a great way to compare and contrast my equipement, even if it does makes for a somewhat redundant photostream at times something I try to avoid.
I like seeing how each of my cameras decipher and convey a scene onto the film's emulsion and there is no better way to achieve that then to get out and do it. Practice makes perfect right? No two cameras, lens, or even films are exactly alike. Each have their strengths and weaknesses, the key is to discover them and figure out how to best implement them into your photographic journey.
I truly believe photography is a journey, with no defined beginning or end rather a constant flow. Every step taken, exposure advanced, and roll developed is part of a greater process. A failure today has the potential to lead to a success tomorrow. Perfection is a goal perhaps best unattained, for once reached the drive to improve is gone and the journey ends.
