well any reader of my blog knows that I am :-)
Tonight I was looking around Farcebook and notice an image use to sell up some real estate.
no doubt taken with a digital camera, and (looking at the shadow in the top middle of the frame) not a very big sensor one either. That bit of 'dust' is classic small camera stuff.
I thought it would be interesting to compare this with the image I got from a pinhole camera I use of my house. Now this is using box brownie 120 roll film which dates from 1901.
The Pinhole Camera dates from much earlier than that. So looking at what sort of image we get from more than century old technology ...
I don't think I see a shit load of development in that time.
As always the advantage of digital comes down to:
- rapid delivery of product
- no skill needed
There is of course no point to this post (that is if you haven't already found it in examining the image)
