“From Today, Painting is Dead” (Three Photographs)

tulipsTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

In 1839 Paul Delaroche was wrong when he said painting is dead, after seeing some daguerreotypes . Painting with oils lives on. Many photographers still prefer film to digital and not just for the wider dynamic range of light, more predictable portrayal of color and tone, but also because it forces you to get more right in camera. I do miss some aspects of film and never more so than when shooting flowers. In this series the varied “canvass” backgrounds reminded me of working with film.

    What I miss about film photography is the simplicity of the cameras. I’ve had my current digital camera for going on two years and I’m still learning about the controls and options. It’s so easy to forget to change important settings that weren’t necessary with film.

    On the other hand, I Iove the complete freedom to take as many snaps as I want with digital. No need to be concerned with film and developing costs. Not to mention there’s no need to have to rush through the remainder of a b&w roll so you can put in a color roll for the sunset. Heh.
