must be the season of the witch
Fine art photography-everyone knows what that is right? ;) :rolleyes: You have to use a large format camera (preferably 8x10 or bigger) made from the wood of an ancient mallorn tree by the elves of Lothlorien under a starry sky and fitted with a Dagor made in Nargothrond or Gondolin during the First Age of Middle Earth-luckily I have one :cool: :p :) :D .MF is ok as long as you use something with Zeiss lenses (otherwise you're a wedding photographer) and 35 mm is just about ok as long as you use either a Leica RF or something that hasn't been made since 1956 ....Film has to be b&w of course, preferably as close to an old style thick emulsion type as possible (TMAX???!!! ) and developed in Pyro.Prints MUST be on FB paper developed in an ancient amidol formula handed down through the generations-black stained fingers are essential for maximum credibility and don't forget to wax lyrical about how good Medalist, Azo etc were compared to those rubbishy modern papers (no silver in them, y'know...).Simple really ;) :D :rolleyes: ... but of course there's a lot more to fine art photography than just equipment and techniques. Photographers like John Blakemore and Paul Caponigro produce beautifully crafted prints which are full of vision -mere technique alone is not enough to achieve this level of work. You must work at really SEEING Grasshopper!
