I'm Ben, and I love experimenting with film. Different cameras, different films, different degrees of expiration... If it might produce interesting results, I'd try it!

I'm mostly into nature photography, with some street photography and other stuff thrown in too. In general, though, I just try to stop and notice things - anything from a nice view to an interesting detail on an otherwise mundane object - and shoot whatever catches my eye (and could produce an interesting result on film!). I primarily shoot color, though I'll shoot B&W here and there if I'm in the mood for that. Currently, I develop B&W at home, while C-41 gets done at a local photo lab. Most of my negatives have been scanned at home on a Konica Minolta DiMAGE Scan Dual IV, using the stock software on an old computer. I'm now also testing out scanning on an Epson Perfection 4490 using the Lomography Digitaliza masks.

Cameras in my arsenal:
- Minolta Maxxum 3xi
- Minolta Maxxum 5xi
- Minolta Freedom Zoom 105i
