Its A “Thankyou For Digital” Situation

As I scan the back catalog, I am coming across my years of band photography. Film really has a hard time, the shot of Damon Albarn from Blur was taken on 400 iso tranny pushed to 800 iso. It really falls to bits under the mixed light. For a decent digital like the 1DX or the A7s this would be a doddle.

E6- Film At Its Best

There was a time when if you were a professional you shot E6 or slide film. With the scanner in operation out come the pics from back in the day when RDP and EPN reigned supreme (if you don’t know what the letters mean, google them). The pic below was shot on pushed RDP using the F90 with a 180mm f2.8 (love that lens). I think this was shot around 1993 when I was shooting a heap of headshots.
