    Agreed. What is also obvious here is that way that large format can carve portraits out of space, like nothing else (I imagine a top-end Leica with really exotic optics might also do the trick, but where's the fun in that, lol). Lovely work.
    Colour saturation with digital is often overwhelming: yes. Colour saturation in colour slide film, e.g. Velvia, can also overwhelm, but used well in my experience Velvia and Provia do things with light that digital technology still cannot come close to. It's the flatness wrt, almost a sense of a lack of care wrt, the intricacies of light that makes digital still a bit problematic for me. When I do produce nice digital colour work I almost immediately ask what film would have done, and the answer inevitably seems to be 'same or better'. I think it's definitely true that if you want to come to understand how to produce great digital colour photographs, working with colour film first helps massively. I'm personally eager to do more work with large format colour slide film, but probably as a bid to transform the ordinary in close-up work in light shifted away from a neutral daylight temperature.

    Yes, unfortunately I agree, it's pretty distracting, a shame since the location was superb
