If I create the look of a filed out negative carrier, without using a filed out negative carrier, that's "fake"
The fact that it cost money and was made with things one can touch is irrelevant. "Fake" means "not genuine, a forgery, or sham", it does not mean "digital".
Black border is a black border. You guys are hung up on this filling out the negative carrier ? Sounds like lomography of that time. . The border in OP sample is too perfect to be done this way unless the artist used some sort of laser cutting device to enlarge the window in the carrier.
I have no idea why you continue to argue here, about essentially nothing. Enjoy yourself!
Had you bothered to actually read the thread you might have learned something, but, laugh away. It's easier than reading!
It isn't about black borders, it is what the black borders signify.
Yeah, I did. That's why I am laughing. Amazing...
Agree with that ! There is more to it, than just one explanation.
Affecttion. If you were Joe Cool New York Photographer you could not crop your negative, a rule mandated on pain of death or being forced to live in New Jersey. The second option was the terror. Now we have tons of folks who affect "bokeh" and grumble the main ingredient in their photo looks awful, out of focus, ignored and cast aside. And the "Barnack" boys who affect shooting with a camera and lenses Barnack gave to the world via a burning bush-- a whole philosophy and system of photography ready to go with one conflageration. No mind Mr. Barnack only wanted a small camera to use to test small rolls of movie from.
