Before Digital...There Was Film

Before Digital...There Was Film

A Photographic Retrospective

by Guyton Nunnally

Unless you visit a museum or art gallery, you will not see the type of black and white photographic images I have on display.  These prints were made using film to capture the images.  I processed the film and printed the images.  A photographer had to have a wide range of photographic knowledge to be successful. No automatic processes were used then.  It was hand-done and labor intensive.  I am not a foe of digital photography; I own digital cameras and digital printers.  I am lucky I have spent time in both worlds - the old world of film and hand made prints and the new world of digital capture, digital printers and high quality images coming from a phone's camera aided by artificial intelligence.

My black and white print exhibition, Before Digital...There Was Film, is all about showing the sharpness, the smooth tonal ranges and the downright cool aspect of a really good black and white print from a keen creative eye.  

Thank you for stopping by to view my prints.

 

Additional photographs in the gallery area are provided by these photographers: Sandra Stafford, Rena Stark and Melanie Turner.
