What is the difference between digital high ISO noise and film grain? Why does one "eat detail" and the other does not?
I'm mixing analog with digital photography — I tend to take better photos when I can't look at a small digital screen, unconsciously forcing me to take the picture before I shoot instead of checking ...
I took this photo recently w/ an old Pentax K1000, using 400 ISO film, and an f/1.7 aperture. Is this graininess just inherent to shooting w/ this sort of film / lighting? Or, is it partially/largely ...
All the film photography I know of - both colour and black-and-white - uses silver halide as the photosensitive component. I suppose that after over a hundred years of wet photography we have a good ...
I was wondering whether film grain is depending on the incident amount of light. There is the Schwarzschild-effect (link to Wikipedia), which will make a difference in very low light, that will ...
There are some photographers like Michael ackerman, Daido Moriyama, Igor Posner, Jacob Aue Sobol, who shoot digitally but some also analog who very often achieve to bring a nice looking grain in their ...
And why is film much more expensive than paper? Is it the silver content? Production volume? Does is it take more effort to produce larger grain?
