Ansteyville.com is a display of my personal photography along with some personal reflections. I am fairly new to photography having picked up the hobby only a few years ago in my late forties. I shoot mostly in digital with entry level gear but recently started shooting B&W 35 mm film with a Spotmatic and some medium format with a Mamiya RB67 system. Perhaps not surprisingly, some of my favourite photographs have been day to day captures taken with my Samsung S6 cellphone.
I am at the stage where I have learned the basics of photography and composition. I shoot for my own enjoyment and post some work on Flickr however my interest is in producing prints worthy of hanging on my living room wall. I am working to develop my own style and have learned I value gritty captures of real life over technical perfection. I am attracted more and more to the timelessness of film.
