Revolution of pixels
Even long before the birth of digital capture, many would find people using the high magnification loop to find the grains on the slide or negative films, but only to observe it than to alter it.
Today, with high definition digital capture, whoever has a computer can peek into the single pixel to find fault, or sometimes wonder, and has the ability to alter it, in almost just any way imaginable.
Contrary to common sense, not all alternation is to improve the quality – at least in scientific terms, often, it is to degrade the image in some ways so it has a different visual presentation that make the image closer to art. Art is a very abstract term, most don’t get it, but if an image was made and manipulated in ways that defy common sense, it somehow made the image closer to art, by common sense? A paradox?
Shot with Sony NEX-5 on the lovely young Russian, Nailya, reminds me of Scarlett Johansson, with short hair.
