I'm shooting with old cameras. I love that the unexpected turns out beautiful—technology is about control, but in the first days of photography you had very little control over the new tech of the day. My oldest cameras are at their best when I don't control the outcome—snapshots. They're almost there. My youngest camera has exacting control. And then there's my Land Camera. It loves family dinners and atmospheric landscapes. Interestingly, the most modern tech I'm using is also some of the least precise—Lab Box + Monobath + iPhone + iPad (my dev and scanning equipment).

I shoot with: a Bessa 1 (early '50s), Bessa 6x9 (late '30's), Polaroid Land Camera (early '60s), and a Yashica 24 (Feb. 1967). I just got a Kodak Brownie #2 ('23-27). I'm also trying a bunch of different films - Old slide film from the '80s, Cinestill 50d, then the black and whites of the world...those I try to develop at home in a Lab Box sometimes with enough of the monobath... sometimes not. I've posted a few of my hard won lessons... kristine-angell.medium.com/a-developing-journey-694e1f8ad736
