    Well I know she uses an old beat-up 8x10.

    Looks like a reversal film to me IMO.

    Seeing the shots for the first time makes me wonder if you're asking so that you can avoid ever using it?

    Another possibility is that Sally Mann used an old, damaged lens which didn't cover the 8x10 format, and the gawd-awful look of the film could be from darkroom manipulation.

    Old thread: Bad lens suggestions for an 8x10.

    Actually quite the opposite, I love the Colorado and dreamyness of it all, how surreal it is

    Fair enough.

    Frankly, I'd be embarrassed to produce images this crap. However, On ne discute ni des goûts, ni des couleurs...

    I don't understand why you're so against the images? Just because they're not techniquely perfect? She wasn't named Americas best photographer for no reason

    Ha....so glad you guys said what I was thinking about the images......I had similar thoughts in my head but decided that 'if I can't say anything nice, that I shouldnt say anything at all.'

    But of course to each their own.....I'm sure many people like them.
