I think these two flowers are hydrangeas?? Again, scanned into the PC from a film print. I’ve tried to articulate a difference between shooting film vs digital. There are probably many differences, but one that strikes me is that film images sometimes have a softness about them. I guess with Photoshop anything can be altered to look like anything. Outside of the act of editing I think this softness is something that strikes me. I guess the same point has been made between vinyl recordings and digital; the vinyl recordings have a ‘softness’ to them, if I were to choose one word to explain the difference.
Thought I would post some non-winter images today and perhaps for the next
couple of days. These images were taken on my Minolta X-700 ( that is all I can
remember) and scanned into PC. Location: Volunteer Park Conservatory.
Some film images I scanned a couple of years ago. Shot on my Minolta X-700 I believe at the conservatory in Volunteer Park, Seattle.
Since we are still waiting for Spring in Seattle I thought I would post an image from my trip to the Conservatory a few weeks ago. The temp today is 46 and it is gray and raining-not the kind of conditions that make for good outdoor images. Besides, I don’t think my D80 is waterproof. There is a pattern in many of my images of flowers/blossoms. Sometimes I will use flash, but most of the time I try not to in order to get this dreamy, soft quality. Plant details are really cool, but I also like to soften the appearance.
