I have been working on a number of images, and recently thought I would force the modern-day equivalent of the Photo Slide Show on my unsuspecting family. I own a very nice new big TV, some kind of 55 inch 1080 HD super machine, and (conveniently) I also own a Sony Playstation 3. So what's the big deal? Well, turns out I can feed the PS3 with high res JPGs, which in turn has an HDTV converter built in. Simply put: unspeakably large images, rendered in the highest possible digital display. Now, I've always wanted to work in a large format, and certainly have always print large when I thought it benefits the image. I believe STRONGLY that size matters for certain images. When an image is over six feet (two meters) per side, the relationship to the image becomes different. You become aware of details that were previously lost, and it becomes impossible to hold the overall composition in the mind's eye. You are forced to fragment the image, and you begin to develop very different relationships between the elements. Of course, it requires an extremely sharp image, or at least that the creative choices you make work within the context of the size. I have to tell you that it was pure joy to see my own images at that size (well, mostly - some clearly benefit from a smaller display format.) There are details there that I had not noticed until then. At this point I'd like to give props to the Leica lenses and sensor - wow. Having said that, I have been speaking with Mitch Epstein (a large format photographer) who works off 8x10 negatives, and the details he pulls out of his images on his 70+ inch prints is impossible with digital so far.... though I found it interesting that he prints digitally. Has anyone else had this experience? If you have the TV and playback gear at home, try it.
