I have a new article on Emulsive.org about the process of visualising when shooting film. It's called 'Visualisation for Film Photographers'.
Emulsive is a rapidly growing site dedicated to exploring film photography in its many guises. It is run with energy, humour and genuine community spirit. There are a lot of interesting photographers to check out, as well as pieces on equipment and processes. They are also looking for contributors, and so offer a great way to get involved with like-minded folk who are passionate about film.
