There was a rerun of Bridges of Madison County on TV some time ago. For those of you who have not seen the film Clint Eastwood plays a photographer for National Geographic out to make pictures of the covered bridges in Madison County.
For a film buff it was a treat to see him loading bricks of Kodachrome in to the fridge to keep cool.
Clint was using a 35mm SLR for the shots.
I have a question for anyone who knows these type of things. Would a NG-photographer have used a 35mm SLR and not a MF?
Or is this just a question of artistic freedom and an SLR on a tripod is easier to handle and looks "good enough" for most folks.
