Gear is nothing more than a collection of tools used in a creative process.
Although there is a revival concerning film photography all of the equipment I use is obsolete. Therefore I think it is useful for you to know what I use.

I will be sticking to the same Ilford film(s), FP4 Plus and HP4 Plus and the same developer, Kodak TMax. I want to get to know these products and feel them as if they were a part of me.

I also would like to emphasize that I am not sponsored in any way by any of the brands or organizations I mention in this blog.
