For me, The Printed image.. hand printed in my own darkroom.. has ALWAYS been the number one goal. Shooting digitally is fun.. but it has only been recently that camera and printer technologies have really become comparative.. and even then- when you dig in and start really looking at the print.. there’s something missing.
Film is composed of crystals.. digital images of pixels. Crystals have no edge bordering while pixels, irregardless of their size, have definitive borders. Pixelation takes place when you print a file over it’s recomended size.. while film can be almost infinately enlarged (yeah, there are limitations.. won’t go in to that here).
“Back in the day,” me neighbor and I had an enlarger.. we converted his spare closet to a darkroom and we shot and shared a lot. We, both, grew as photographers and we experimented with ideas. After moving from Kelowna thru Banff and on to Vancouver.. space became a premium and having an enlarger was a priveleage that I couldn’t afford. Today.. I have purpose- built a “shed” beside my rental property and made it~ from the very beginning~ to be a darkroom (so, it’s “Light- Tight” or.. when the door is closed.. no light leaks in) and I have started PRINTING again.
