photography is art

    Plain and simple. There is a wide variety of equipment out there as
    well as the film/digital divide, but the outcome of all of it is in the
    name of art. this month's copy of B&W depicts a picture on the cover of
    which has not the smallest portion of it in the crisp and clear clarity
    that everyone seems to be thriving for. All equipment can be used for
    art in one way or another. It's the equipment which should be fit for
    your desisred outcome, not the other way around. And as far as film
    versus digital? again, just two differant mediums. Digital photography
    takes images with millions of pixels, film takes shots with billions of
    silver halide crystals. Most digital photography never makes it's way
    into someone's actual hands, 9 times out of 10 it's viewed on a
    1024x768 pixel monitor which reduces your 8 megapixel shot down to just
    under a single megapixel, though when printed, 8 megapixels is fine
    enough to print about a 20x30 without any real problem. Digital also
    has the amazing ability to see what you're shooting as it happens,
    unlike film which you need to develop to learn from.

    It's a pick and choose battle, both with their respective up's and
    down's. Though, in the end, each has an application and it's up to the
    individual photographer to choose what floats their boat personally. I
    shoot both depending on what i'm looking for, I love the technicallity
    of film but love photoshop as well. most times my film ends up being
    scanned anyways.

    Lost my train of thought.

    A mild case of logorrhea, perhaps?

    probably, seeing the "it's the equipment" rant and all the
    grrr-arghness in there just kinda got me annoyed.

    I could've summed up the whole thing with,"stop filling my daily e-mail
    with crap"

    I liked the "lost my train of thought" part...
