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.
