My Victorian Business Card

    Had I given you my business card between about 1880 and 1900, this is what you would have received.

    (You can see it larger if you like.)

      Digital or film?

      Digital. I don't work in film anymore. Last winter I had a major client interested in using a photo I'd done, so I re-shot it on film. It was amazing how crappy the quality of film is compared to digital.

      Of course, large format would be a different story, but I don't have the room for a developing lab, nor the patience for it -- and least of all, the money it costs to shoot film!

      Oh... and actually, the card (above) wasn't photographed at all, but rather scanned -- which is arguably a type of photograph, but never mind...

      it all depends on what you mean by "quality" ;) I still think film is much superior to digital "quality" wise.

      Well, to me, "quality" means not blurry, crappy, and discolored. ;-)

      But then there are people who think that vinyl albums sound better than CD. Go figure. The only thing I can chalk it all up to it anti-technology bigotry; an unfounded but passionate belief that the old ways are better than the newfangled ones.
