Another documentary I watched was a 3-part documentary titled, "The Genius of Photography." Fascinating. My most powerful impression from it was that the people using the earliest, most primitive photographic equipment made pictures that were just as good as the pictures made at any other time in the history of photography. We can make good pictures in a much wider variety of ways and styles as technology progresses, but there is no increase in inherent artistic quality. It's all about the photographer.
I was heartened today to read a news blurb that supports the hope that film will be around for a while.
In a special exhibit at PMA, Fujifilm will feature a prototype of a new portable medium-format film camera. Even as the company innovates in digital imaging technology, Fujifilm remains true to its heritage and to the acknowledged superior image quality delivered by professional photographic film products.Excellent.
