david schrott is everywhere

everything doesn’t always have to be as sharp as a razor.

I have this tendency to want everything under control, and that includes focus. When I shoot with Ilford Pan F, I lose a lot of that control. It’s probably the slowest film one can buy and on even a bright overcast day, depth of field can be really hard to come by. I’ve been trying to let go of some things photographically; precise control is one of them. Razor sharpness doesn’t always make for the most beautiful photo and shooting for 1/4 of a second at f2.8 can teach one that.
