Join Mark Silber now for this rare, behind the scenes look.
I definitely did not have any exposure on, how the images were developed in the darkroom. After seeing this video it makes me appreciate the pre-digital photography much more. I was always in awe with Ansel Adam’s work. After getting a glimpse of how he developed his work it makes me appreciate his art much more.
I am not sure how I would have reacted to photography, if I were born pre-digital age. I surely prefer Lightroom 3 and alike for processing then being in a darkroom. What inspires me is in spite of having so many constrains and challenges nothing could stop these great artists from expressing their ideas. Now it is up to me how I used the advantage of the digital world for my benefit. I am thankful that I have joined OCA. The course is surely making me think and research a lot about what I do and how I would like to shape my future in photography.
