6 reasons why you should use a mirrorless digital camera to meter for your film photos

When I switched to film, there was pretty much only one thing I was worried about: metering. I didn't mind manual focusing (I actually love it and only use manual lenses on my digital cameras as well, except the one I use for video), having only 12 shots per roll, not being able to view my shots, or any other "annoyances" that come with shooting film.

It was all about metering the scene. I didn't want the camera to get in my way of taking pictures and become more a problem than something that should facilitate a creative process.

Places I hope to photograph during the next few weeks

We are finally on the road! I'm writing this from our hotel in Coos Bay, located in the Central Oregon Coast. And reading Rachel's post about our road trip, I realized I never posted our plans on here. She listed the places where we are going to be spending our next 9 weeks, and I'll leave here some of the spots I am hoping to photograph:

  • Bandon, OR
  • Redwoods in Northern California
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Joshua Tree, CA
  • Anza-Borrego Desert, CA
  • Alabama Hills, Mono Lake and Eastern Sierras, CA
  • Death Valley, CA
  • Valley of Fire, NV
  • Sedona, AZ
  • Grand Canyon, AZ
  • Zion, UT
  • Bryce Canyon, UT
  • Antelope Canyon, AZ
  • Monument Valley, UT
  • Canyonlands, UT
  • Arches, UT
  • Mesa Verde, CO

These are just the "big" highlights: I hope we get to visit some places I don't even know of just yet.

Film is ready.
