Anthony Tripoli: I see a lot of new shooters putting their subject dead center because that’s where the focus patch is, but then not readjusting after achieving focus. This leads to a lot of portraits with a ton of headroom. We’re all guilty of it from time to time, and shit sometimes it looks good, but it’s something to be aware of especially when shooting portraits. With that being said, if you like portraits with a ton of head room, do what makes you happy, but it does seem to be a common theme I see online/Youtube with people shooting film, and especially medium format.

Jon Henry: “Get a second film back if you can. So you can use 2 different film types.”
