-chrome

The autumn colors on the approach to the foot of the Matterhorn reminded me so much of the Kodak chromes, the beautifully saturated slide films of yesteryear.

And while I do miss the rich saturation of those films, not to mention the great B&W films and the hours in the darkroom, I certainly don’t miss the expense with each.  Even prorated, the software and hardware work out to be cheaper and more efficient per image than those halcyon days.

  1. This is a beautiful picture. I think you can get a great variety of saturation and effects with the digital, but it’s work. The only thing I miss about the old films were the large negatives that could hold so much information… But each media has its own characteristics, and there is much to be said for the digital image.
