In the 90s we were fighting to find out the best darkroom genius to take care of our bw pictures and some of the times get rid of scratches and dust.
Today we use special software to create scratches and dust or even a 1600 ISO grain.
So where is the point?
Always the same. Creativity is called whatever can drive us through the process of develop what’s in our mind.
This is what keeps us alive, what inspire our point of view.
But let me tell you. Photography in the modern era can be well achieved only if there’s a background journey that brings us to the starting point.
How and Why the scratches were born and how manage grain or dust on films. To the final point of a real darkroom, that it can’t be the lightroom software by Adobe. A real darkroom that will drive you through this stunning travel back to the past.
How much we miss the real scratches or the real grain??? You don’t really know it if you don’t know what I’m talking about.
It’s beautiful to shoot reportages with a modern smartphone but it’s so far away from what the real photography is about.
Knowledge is the focal point of everything you want achieve in this life and make sure it’s never enough.
