Welcome to Big Mountain Photography

I’m hooked on medium format film as it’s fun to shoot and the final images can range in size from 6×4.5, 6×6, 6×7, 6×9, 6×12 or 6×17. I find the 6×6 format (aspect ratio, 1:1) as the most challenging for composition and most satisfying when you nail it. Are you thinking about giving analog photography a try? If so, consider medium format as the equipment is reasonable and readily available, i.e. on eBay.
For those unfamiliar with medium format film, let me bring it back to a full-frame perspective, i.e. 35mm (or 135).
There is not a lot I can say that hasn’t been said numerous times before by many passionate film photographers. For some, the “Hassey” is an iconic camera of times gone by. Not familiar with a Hasselblad, let me share Matt Day‘s video on the Hasselblad 500CM: Click Here
The Featured Image above is a Hasselblad 500 CM c.1985
Hasselblad 500CM w/80mm and pop-up waist level viewfinder. I’ve added a prism viewfinder, a 50mm CF lens and an extra film back for B&W.
