amsterdam02.jpg Digital cameras are handy but old fashioned chemical photos still look better. Digital shows realistic colours, chemical photos, especially slides show a better version of reality. Chemical, or analog, photos show brighter colours and have more range than digital photos do.

My favorite camera is the two eyed reflex camera like the Rolleiflex and Rolleicord or their distant cousin from Shanghai: Seagull, a chinese camera.

Nobody still prints their own photos. Printing in a darkroom is fun but making a colour print is just too complicated. Digital allows you to do some of the tweaking you would do in a darkroom on the computer. Using digital in processing makes using old printing techniques like Blueprint possible and fun.
