march 2017—roll 3

I have several cameras, but I try to alternative between them and limit myself to using just a few every month. In March, I shot nearly all of my medium format on my 6x7 camera, which has a "normal" focal length, roughly equivalent to the typical person's field of vision. It's ideal for the kinds of shots you get when you're just walking around, which is largely what you'll find on this roll. The exception is this interior, from the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, which is just a short bike ride from my apartment. The normal perspective makes interiors feel cramped, and for the first shot on this role—that of a small shrine—it works. The film is my usual, Kodak Tri-X, overdeveloped to extract more detail from the shadows.
