… about the amount of inform­ation that’s hiding inside a digital image file.
Why is the lumin­osity and three dimen­sion­ality of film even possible to approach with a low end digital camera? And why do we accept such dreary results most of the time?

As you might have noticed, I was finding it hard to concen­trate this afternoon.

My photos never look like the beautiful silky things I see online or in books and magazines. They’re always a bit hard and grimy.
So the additional graininess doesn’t worry me.
But Jeez … looking up how much serious B&W printers, and their inks, cost is chastening.
