This is Alpes mountain range which is called   "Le Massive du Mont Blanc", Haût Savoir region  In France.  And this place is a White valley ( La Vallee Blanche - Chamonix ) the most beautiful region You must visit. I was very brave enough to carry my Medium format two lenses/ meters/ and a Canon EOS and a 50mm, a lot of films No tripod/ It is crazy when I thi

Bonjour Henri,   I still prefer black and white film (I use almost no colour). The advantages of digital don’t mean much to me. Seeing instant results is not so useful, since what comes out of a camera is always far from a final result, and the final result requires time and thought.   Film also continues to improve. The quality of available film and developers is as good as it has ever been, and it is still as competent as digital sensors of equivalent size.   I also much prefer silver g

On a week-long stay at the Faroe Islands, I took the ferry from Torshavn (the 'capital') to the southernmost island, Suduroy, and looked up potential shooting locations on the island. This image was taken a little before the sun was setting in the ocean, with wind from the west (left). With the uplift of the humid air at the cliffs, fog and clouds drifted over the island. A quite typical situation for the islands; the ocean can be more or less cloud free, but the islands are generally covered in

I just watched this video produced by Ilford. The photographer, Lucy Ridges, is not only supremely talented but is able to clearly speak and with admirable insight about her ideas, approach and motivations and I think many of us might find ourselves nodding in agreement or in recognition of what she has to say. Her work is exemplary. That she uses film should I guess be secondary but for me it totally reinforced the connection I and I think many of us feel towards photography using film and the processes involved. I enthusiastically commend this video along with the excellent Fay Godwin video that has been recommended below:

Phil, thank you for the link--I think "Between truth and illusion" wraps it up perfectly.   As to the second link-I will set some time apart for that. Thank you again. Very inspiring.

So much in this photo to delight, the warm colours, a gentle breeze of the sea, her stance and head held high. I love this photo.
