DEAN BARWELL: EQUIPMENT

I use Canon EOS 35mm SLR cameras exclusively.

I could use larger format cameras and have in the past worked with Bronica’s. However I take a lot of my photographs while traveling and If I’m being perfectly honest I really don’t like humping a heavy bag of equipment around for weeks on end.

The Canon cameras are robust, light, have a multitude of features and most importantly deliver excellent results. My Canon 24-105 zoom spends so much time on the camera that it has rendered all others almost redundant. It is without a doubt my favorite lens.

Ilford film is what you would find inside and the stalwarts of that brand, HP5 and FP4 are my films of choice in that order.

I develop all my work myself using traditional chemical processes and print on to Ilford papers using a Durst Enlarger sadly no longer made.
