    Or am I missing an account?

    I'm posting this question here, because I think I have the best reach here with this question.
    Well, does it make sense to reduce 8x10 photos to the size of a stamp?

    No, but as we all know, these images are only made to be printed, so now digital format will it ever do it full justice. Right?
    For me Instagram is more of a showcase in preview-kind of way, and a good way to get in touch and to get to know work by other photographers in a turn of a hand.

    Instagram never does full justice to photographs, but neither does a forum. Still digital, and if you are like me, on a laptop atm, than still it too small of what it should be. :-)

    Had to set up quickly. The boy is so stand-offish that any attention paid to him will cause him to leave the room immediately.
    Set up while he napped, removed the lens cap, then called his name. "Gotcha" I whispered.

    Sure. It's called microfiche. Or espionage.

    Ok so I admit I don’t attract the best looking models. Commercial Ektar 14” with 4x5 Fomopan 100. Click image for larger version.
