Digital/Film recap

In case you missed it, here are all the pictures from this last week’s digital/film, point-and-shoot/slr, compare/contrast fest. If you see something I missed in the last posts, please let me know. I don’t have much more to say about any of it, and it’s Saturday anyway, so get off the computer, go outside, and […]

Flowers: C-5050/D7000/FG

This is, admittedly, sort of a random, grab-bag of leftovers. Let’s look at them in order of sensor size. Once again, digital wins in terms of contrast, color and saturation; film wins in terms of soul. And, again, they’re all pictures, and all have some sort of purpose. It’s probably more preference than anything. I […]

Looking through, looking past: LC-A/C-5050/D7000/FG

Continuing on with the compare/contrast event, here are some examples of looking through things, looking past things, with two small, point-and-shoot-type cameras and two slr-type cameras: the Lomo LC-A, Olympus C-5050, Nikon D7000 and Nikon FG. This isn’t quite as straightforward a comparison as yesterday’s, and it’s more about lens characteristics than anything else. But […]

Olympus C-5050 / Lomo LC-A

I ended up at 3 different nurseries with 3 different cameras. I didn’t much realize it until later, but it makes for a good opportunity to compare/contrast digital and film cameras. Disclaimer: I’m not interested in disparaging either: pretty, fun, decent, mediocre, bad, artistic, etc. pictures have been made with both, and it’s not about […]

Hair Studies, part 4 (1)

In the last week of testing/playing with Olympus C-5050, again with the “macro” filter.   There’s something about this that feels very 1970s to me. I’m not sure what it is. Maybe the slightly desaturated color, maybe the mix of browns and blues, with just that hint of purple and orange, maybe the slightly off-kilter […]
