Mamiya, I miss you.

Copyright Jeff Ball 2010

As an artist, I’ve always felt the pull of self portraits.¬† I get so comfortable behind the camera, it makes it easier to photograph myself when I’m holding one of my favorites.

I love my Mamiya 645. It’s a classic medium format camera with sturdy design and beautiful optics. I love the sound of the shutter with it’s very distinct “ker chunk”. Winding the film by hand is another sensation¬† you just can’t get with a digital camera.

I miss shooting with this beauty. I vow to shoot a roll with this camera in the next two weeks. Stay tuned for the results.
