these digital photographs...
These photographs were made without the use of
any film or chemicals. And not a single drop of
water was wasted in the processing of them. (If
you don't count the cups of coffee I drank while
working on them, of course)
images were made using a high resolution digital
camera manufactured at Kodak's Rochester Elmgrove
plant, and just down the hall from where my lab
is. Some of the images were taken with the Kodak
DCS460 (Nikon body), but most were taken with the
Kodak EOSÄDCS1 (Canon body) digital camera. The
resolution of these images is approximately 3000
x 2000 pixels or 18mb each.
are stored on a removable PCMCIA hard disk in the
camera and can be easily be transferred to your
computer. Once in your computer, software like
Adobe's Photoshop allows you to enhance and
manipulate the images in ways you could only
dream about being able to do in a darkroom.
have ability to control almost every aspect of
the final image down to the pixel level, I feel
that the quality of these digital images can in
many ways surpass that of images created on
traditional 35mm slide film.
