Thread: 210mm for 8x10"

    Re: 210mm for 8x10"

    Origins might be found in the orthodoxy and ideology of Group f64, purity of vision or straight photography.

    Photography is at best an interpretation of an emotional experience in a three dimension world rendered on a flat two dimension plane. This is inherently and by process distortion. Lenses are tools for this interpretive process. Greater the variety of tools, greater the possible results of the interpretive process, limit the tools limits this interpretive process.

The other thing I don't get is how an entire wing of photograph has branded one particular aspect of vision as distasteful and illegitimate. It doesn't make much sense.
