    Anne Leibovitz goes digital

    Just stumbled across this while flicking through news sites today. Anne Leibovitz will be releasing a new body of work in a book, 'Pilgrimage'. It's her first fully digital work and in the article she mentions how good the images taken using a digital is nowadays. She states that she took photos of a house in low-light, but still her digital images came out very useable.

    Annie Leibovitz has been a proponent of Digital for quiet some time. A chapter of her book at work is dedicated to what she thinks of digital and from her point of view quiet understandable. Most of Ms. Leibovitz photos even in her pre digital days were heavily digitaly retouched anyways. I still like her work though.

    Digital. It's a minor point in the article. Shooting digital isn't a disease, just another way to produce an image.

    Every artist has to decide for him/herself the tools for success, I'm in no place to judge anyone.

    Hey! I took that same picture of Niagra, and I'm pretty sure it's on the Canadian side...

    I heart that she has huge debts. It might be the reason or one of the reason.

    Crap in crap out, doesn't matter what device you use to produce the image.

    Agreed with all the views expressed here. I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest, and I'm not familiar at all with Anne's work. After posting this up here, I took a look at some of her earlier work and yes, they do seem to be altered digitally to quite an extent. Much like Gregory Crewdson's work, then. I shared this article because for me it's interesting to see a pro who used to work only with film now going digital. Anyway, agreed with everyone here, the device used to make the photo doesn't matter (much!), but the output does. If it's crap, it's still crap...no matter if it's digital crap or 'analog' crap. It still smells
