I'm still shooting film, 4x5 mostly... I've "rediscovered" Arista Edu Ultra 100 (aka Foma 100). It's a "classic" emulsion... I had gotten tired of it developed in Rodinal, but Xtol seems to breathe new life into it.
Part of why I haven't updated this blog in a log time is because I have a dedicated photography blog at http://brianthedellphotography.com
In addition to my photography, I have been "cross training" my visual skills by learning Chinese brush painting; I even have a blog about that: http://fourgentlemen.com
So this, Gangsta Grain, is effectively my fourth blog at this point (my third being my poetry blog).
Maybe I could use this blog to sermonize about the problems I see with film, and with the large format community in specific (I'm looking at you http://LargeFormatPhotography.info/forum).
