4) Why do you offer both digital (inkjet) and analog (film) prints?
I offer both because I feel there are important differences between the two mediums. Digital photography has come a long way since its inception over 20 years ago, but I feel it still can't fully match the look of film. There is nothing like a well-developed and processed silver gelatin print! My first digital camera was a 4 megapixel point-and-shoot model. Being only 4 megapixels the main limitation was its ability to resolve fine detail. Several years, and camera models later, my Nikon DSLR was 36 megapixels. It was capable of incredibly sharp, finely detailed photos, but when I closely examined a digital and film print of the same scene it seemed that with digital there was still something missing. To me, digital photos, if not processed carefully, have an overly homogenized look that makes the scene look different than how I saw it. To many this difference is seen as "better." In fact, this was what I believed for many years. However, as I began to experiment with film over the past few years my beliefs have undergone a radical shift. I now realize that sharpness is not the end-all, and if overdone can actually detract from a photo's character and quality.
In addition to my experience working directly with film, studying the masters of photography has contributed to this shift. I really love the look of classic photography by Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Eugene Atget, and Minor White, to name a few. To me, film has more grit and substance, and is a purer representation of reality. It does not strive to cover up the blemishes of life, nor should it have to. Another advantage of film is that it allows use of classic lenses that still are among the best ever made. These lens add to the character of the resulting photo because they have unique signatures, and "draw" of "render" the scene differently than do modern lenses.
Currently, I have 5 film cameras (two 35mm, and three medium format - 6x6, 6x7), and one digital camera. I do still use digital on occasion because in certain situations, particularly shooting in low light, it offers a significant advantage and allows me to capture photos that would be impossible with film. I have become such a fan of film over the past few years that in 2017 I had a darkroom built in my basement so I could process my own film. Having my own darkroom allows me to offer limited edition prints of my analog work. I hope some of you decide to talk advantage of this unique opportunity,
5) Why do you only offer black and white photos?
I only offer black and white photos because I feel that when color is absent from a photo it allows other aspects of the scene to more fully emerge. In particular, the quality of light, form, pattern, and texture. Taken together, the emergence of these characteristics often leads to more dramatic, emotionally impactful photographs. Also, there is a sense of timelessness that characterizes black and white photography and I find this adds to the allure of the photo.
