Nikon has released a new camera, the D2x, a high-resolution competetor to Kodak's SLR/n and Canon's 1Ds. I'm sure it will be a fine camera, but will also be priced out of my reach.
Stefan Rohner's photography is, in his words, about "Faces telling stories ... with honor and respect, from my point of view." A photographic ethic to which we can all aspire.
Yesterday, Mr. Rohner said of my photograph that the grain may look too artificial. That, I guess, is the point. The grain of that image, is not 'painted on' by some algorithm attempting to impart a film grain quality to the image. Instead, the photo employs Digitalism, where, the attributes of the digital image are used in the image. Digital grain has a blockier, more regular look than does film grain, and so imparts its own look to a photograph.
