aphog Photo Competition – And the winners are …

October 16th, 2010 · No Comments · analogue photography, Distraction, Photography

Even in an age of increasing digital technology, classic film is still far from being obsolete. aphog (analog photo group) offers a common platform to all photographers, who are still or again using film.

The recent aphog photo competition was won by Frank Rapp. He was awarded with a SilverFast Archive Suite for his Epson scanner. Second and third awards went to Holm Wolschendorf and Yunhai Cui.

Frank Rapp has been photographing since three decades with just a short stop off in the digital photography. Initial enthusiasm soon gave way to the realization that the quality cannot compete with conventional photography regarding resolution and dynamic range.

Frank Rapp: “Only the hybrid processing gave me the opportunity to photograph analog, but to transfer the costly and time-consuming elaboration of raw material from the “wet” darkroom to the “dry” computer workstation by scanning my slides and/or negatives. For scanning I use an Epson V750 for quite some time in connection with “SilverFast Ai”. This gives me the best digital source material for further processing.”
