If you’re not following Digital Still Sucks on Tumblr, you’re missing out on a lot of great, yep, you guessed it, film portraits. That one of Meredith Miller is amazing!

    Hasselblad love, but scanned and on a screen even film sucks :-(

      I wouldn’t agree, personally.

      wrong! still a far better tonal range than digital. and of course on paper it is another world.

      • Rasmus Riemann

        Depends on the digi-cam and the scanner I guess..

        • http://theradavist.com/ John Watson

          Yeah, because my scans show a much higher dynamic range and much more highlight detail… Drum scanners > flat bed.

    Square format socks…

      How can you say a Hasselblad sucks?

      • Rasmus Riemann

        The format not the camera. IMHO it’s constricting. It’s a loooong discussion ☺.

        • http://theradavist.com/ John Watson

          I’d say that format is less constricting. You don’t have to worry about “the rules of thirds”, or composition as much. Freedom to frame as you wish. ;-)

          that’s why the work (just one name) of Mary Ellen Mark is so boring.

          • Rasmus Riemann

            Yes.

  • stefanrohner
