the progression from film to digital images. Many seasoned
photographers bemoan this.
However, it, is
as our progression from the horse drawn carriage to the motorcar. We
either embrace new technologies or we let the world pass us by. Digital
is neither better or worse, it's simply what is. Early in my career I
discovered the joy of seeing
this world through the careful melding of orthochromatic (black
& white) and
panchromatic (grayscale) images. The process was painstakingly slow.
Patience was essential. Today's digital darkroom provides the
with virtually unlimited artistic expression, something, up until now,
only painters have enjoyed. Patience still remains a virtue,
it is now more rewarding than ever. - Jim
