Before the Digital Camera

Before digital cameras hit the photography market, I spent hours developing film, mixing chemicals, and printing images. My childhood Brownie was eventually replaced.  As we all did, I advanced to a 35 mm camera with lenses and filters. I still admire the work of early photographers who most likely never dreamed of a digital age. My post of a few black & white portraits deserve the light of day. Released from negative strips, contact sheets, and 3-ring binders out they go into the Universe. (Perhaps not quite that far.) The portraits are of friends, neighbors, and people I met along the way.

    Describe “side by side shots of digital & 35 film work.” Word Press is a bitch to use. For media choices range from number of columns, size, and slideshow. After unacceptable attempts I went back to the old safe slideshow option.

    Great images. I especially like the one of what I presume to be a Native American man. I was going to say “elderly Native American man” then thought of my own79 years. Best not to add labels.

    Thanks for send the post. Have you seen many side by side shots of digital and 35 film work?
