There are quite a few differences between film and digital imaging. One main difference is that when it comes to film you are dealing with dye and density; with digital it's all a numbers game. Once exposed and developed, film has measurable and fairly fixed characteristics. With digital it's pretty much up for grabs. That's because digital images are composed of...

Everyone has experienced the frustration of making changes to an image on the monitor until it’s just right, then seeing a print emerge only to have it too light, too dark, or, for black and white images, seeing the image color go a sickly green or other color cast. It would make sense that what you see on the monitor screen matches the print, but that’s not always or, for some, often...

I’ve always been a strictly DIY print guy and have done my fair share of printing over the years, but I’ve recently seen some intriguing print presentations by friends and associates—on aluminum, bonded under acrylic glass, on textile or canvas—that I could never produce in my studio. As I researched the idea I decided it was time to check out a custom lab that could broaden my print options.

The query, "Who's your favorite photographer?" has to be among the top three icebreakers (can you name the other two?) amid photographers. It's not a popularity contest, per se, but more a seeking of what images inspire you and whose point of view you admire and, at one point in your creative work, who you might like to emulate. This might vary according to...

There are times when photographers who want to make a quality print must feel like they have to be prepress technicians. There are a number of parts to the process that must be in sync for the print to match what is seen on the screen during processing. This brings up matters of calibration, profiling, profiles and color management.

As we come to the end of what could kindly be described as a challenging year, we look forward to lots of new photo developments coming in 2010. What began 170 years ago as a fairly provincial art practiced by a small group of scientists, dabblers, and entrepreneurs has turned into the most democratic of all forms of visual communication, with images made five minutes ago immediately available...

While grammatically awkward, the headline on this column pretty much sums up how digital has changed our relationship with our prints. While many photographers have always made an effort to develop their own black and white film and make their own custom-crafted prints, quite a few less bothered making their own color prints, and only a handful might have developed their own color...

The somewhat archaic reference in the title of this month's Editor's Notes shows you from whence I came, and perhaps where most photographers are heading. The onrush to digital is apparent in sales stats from the holiday shopping season, where 90 percent of the cameras sold were digital. The show season, which began in January and stretches into the fall, is filled...
