When shooting medium format, I usually run through a range of emotions:
From the “I’m not pressing the shutter enough and I’m missing moments because I’m pretty sure the focus wasn’t spot-on…” to the “I’m shooting too much indiscriminately, and the roll is going to be a big waste of time and effort…”
Furthermore, the shooting envelop is rapidly exhausted (especially indoors…) and the meter often says “You are probably three stops under, even though you think ISO 800 is enough”.
And of course, the “No, you cannot actually hand-hold that shot at 1/8s”.
It is usually a tense wait until that roll is finally developed, dried and scanned…
Hoping that even one shot will make the whole effort worthwhile.
It’s a drug, is what it is…
Tri-X pushed one stop in D76.
