Golden Bay, Malta. Shot with Contax T2 and Portra 400.

I’ve been intrigued by film photography for a while, though it was never my primal way of shooting. Digital SLRs, being the de facto choice of a modern cameraman, were my main mode of capturing images.

But this year, my two weeks at Malta, imported Contax T2 from Japan, and five rolls of Portra 400 have finally tipped the scales. It was this image that triggered my decision to make film the main medium of choice.
