Aesthetics and High End Digital Photography with Stephen Johnson
The advance of high-end digital cameras with their unique abilities to see and record light have the potential to change many of the ways we think about photography, including how we think a photograph should look. With their extended dynamic range and unprecedented color accuracy, digital sensors can offer dramatically higher image quality than film. The photographic print is evolving concurrently with direct digital printing, now moving onto pigmented prints lasting hundreds of years on a wide variety of substrates. The advent of digital photography brings us much more than convenience, it can deliver a very different visualization of our world. Attendees will learn about this brave new digital world from a photographer who has been on the bleeding edge of this new technology for more than 20 years.
