Camera testing and random film images

I am currently working on a couple of new projects, both of which are in the planning/research stage. One part of this is deciding on the format that I will use to make the images. I have recently acquired two medium format cameras which offer different image formats and produce images that differ in aesthetics. I have been testing the cameras with different films. Early stages of projects can be the most interesting as one experiments and finds the right formula. Of course this can change even in the later stages as the project develops. 


The two cameras I have been working with is a Yashica-Mat TLR and a Fuji GW690III, which is a range finder. Both cameras use 120 film with the Yashica-Mat shooting square format and the Fuji making huge 6x9 negatives. During the tests I have been using a mix of Kodak Portra and Ilford XP2. I have been using XP2 because I have access to a C-41 Processor, and the results have been quite good so far.
