All About the Light

Welcome to Big Mountain Photography

(Dashan Sheying –大山摄影)

As my photography journey continues and believe me it is continuing as I evolve my taste for “light”, I’ve taken fewer photos while attempting to stalk the “light”.   I believe this is a by-product from shifting back to film while staying 50-50 with digital.

With medium format 120 film, images per roll range from 4 to 12:

  • Fuji GF670: at 10 – 6×7 or 12 – 6×6 images per roll
  • Mamiya C330: 12 – 6×6 images per roll
  • Hasselblad 500CM: 12 – 6×6 images per roll
  • Shenhao 6×17 View Camera: 4 images per roll
  • RSS Pinhole Camera: 4 images per roll

Given the limited number of images, you need to think each and every composition through while stalking the light.  Often, I catch myself rushing for the next image and say it’s not a digital experience I’m seeking.  So this gallery is my “Light Stalker” of both digital and film where the focus is to capture and process for the light, always the light.
