Homage by Johnstonandjohnston

I composed this photograph using a Mamiya C3 Professional Twin Lens Reflex Camera, a 135mm Blue Dot Lens, & super steady hands while holding my breath and attempting to stop my heart from beating—while waiting for the jet to slide slowly into the frame.

I captured the light for 1/250 of a second on Kodak Ektar 100, medium format color film; then developed, scanned, digitized and uploaded. All so you could view it for 2 seconds and completely forget about the image within the next 3.5 minutes, statistically speaking.

The process of film photography is very unforgiving, painstakingly slow, and each shot must be purposeful, deliberate.

I hope you enjoy the image, understand the process and appreciate the relatively sluggish process as much as I do.

I made this for you.
