I would like to think (but know it can never be so) that anyone with eyes can see that this portrait of your son is also a portrait of light and geometry. And if they’ve been paying attention, that it is not just a moment in your family’s days, but one in a long history of making art with a mechanic device and chemical process, by timing and placement, by what is left in and what is left out, proof yet again that a great photograph does not reproduce nature, but interprets it.
Do me a favor, my friend, please please please keep this M3… 🙂
Well summed up!! Heres to “family snaps.” :-)….
Yes, “family snaps”, LOL.
I won’t sell this one Greg. Thank you for caring my friend.
just a beautiful portrait, Peter. i agree with greg above and would suggest that mr. critical you quoted recently in emails received who thinks you just show family snaps would do well to look at this and wonder what is missing from is photographic sensitivity and knowledge. if he is capable of wondering at all. love your transition back to film. you inspire me to do the same.
Thank you Henry. Film has always felt like coming home to me. Good luck if you venture in that direction, and let me know if I can help.
This looks great Peter!
Thank you Sir Mark.
Thank you SP.
Boy… this is gorgeous!
Thank you dear Luiz. You are commenting on a film shot? Maybe “M” deserves to be photographed with it… 😉
Thanks for your reply Peter! I guess she does deserve but there’s no support in my country for film shooting… Regarding my comment the beauty of the image is everything — mainly the composition and expression and certainly the film look also. 🙂
Thanks again for your appreciation.
The support for film here is bad too…that’s why I ordered all of the supplies and film I needed.
This is easily one of your best ever portraits. That’s all I have to say about that. 🙂
I find it strange that so many photo scanners accentuate grain so much. I like grain, but I don’t see the point in exaggerating it.
Nice one. I am using the 8100. The Plusteks are OK (no autofocus though..) but nothing beats printing your own work in the darkroom. You can see some of my pictures to Flickr..https://www.flickr.com/photos/25784885@N03/
Very nice Antonio, very nice.
I don’t find the lack of AF on the Plustek to be an issue, however, as zooming in on a scan at 100% yields a sharp image.
