Ed’s Camera Gear
Continuing my interview with Ed Burtynsky, we talk about every photographer’s favorite subject, cameras. Ed shares with us his evolution of camera systems from 4×5 and 8×10 film to the Hasselblad 100 mega-pixel digital camera. Much of Ed’s work is shot from high altitude, and he has a few stories about how that is accomplished. You’ll also hear why during the film days Ed decided to shoot his work with color negative film. He shares his evolution of color printing and how he went from a hybrid color workflow to his eventual full digital workflow.
Ed’s projects are related to man’s effect on our world. One of his most noted projects is one about water. I have included links below to clips of the watermark project. These short clips and the film itself will get you thinking. The same as his Landscape Of Oil project.
