Experiments with a Bronica

Rannoch Station

I purchased a second-hand Bronica camera a few months ago. It is medium format film camera with a good reputation for the quality of its’ pictures, but without the programmes and electronic support which we take for granted on DSLR cameras. It has taken me a little while to get used to it, and even longer to find someone able to develop and process the 120 film format effectively. But I’m now starting to enjoy the results, though it is clear there is a long way to go.

On a journey from Edinburgh northwards, I left the A9 at Perth and took a tour on the back roads, ending up at Rannoch Station. It was a foul day, not unusual this summer, and I had to sit in the car for ages before it stopped raining long enough for me to take the photograph above, but I am delighted by the grainy feel this picture has, which actually fitted the day very well.

A few more pictures taken on the same journey, and then when I got home, are below. Advice and comments welcome!
