Default Contrast: Old school/New school

I was going to show my old Pentax K1000 and my Kodak Dx 6490, but I couldn't get a good photo with my sons digital.

I really like the reflections and the many forms of contrast

Ooh, and you used a highly reflective surface, too. You must know how cool I think that is!

Barbara, It was shot on a 2 tiered coffee table with black velvet over it. the base is a piece of highly reflective black plastic sheeting.

Great idea. It expands our notion of things to utilize when looking for reflections. It also immediately stuffs one more thing in the carton I use for storing backdrops.

Photo I wanted to post, but could not get a good one of my digital to merge. I took one with the pentax but need 23 more to finish the roll.

nice camera!!

now this picture got me thinking......i wonder if it would be better/cheaper to have a CCD put in a film camera.....so that it takes the pictures with that and you can still use your old lenses.......it would save money at least on the lenses.....if it would be possible is a different story though lol

They actually have digital backs for some of the cameras. Don't quote me on this, but I seem to remember Nikon has this.

It seems to me that retrofitting a digital system to a film system might not work quite as well as a dedicated digital system. I have no idea why I'm saying this other than that the idea reminds me of trying to turn an elephant into a rhino by gluing a horn in the middle of its forehead.
