Kent Miller was recently interviewed by CBS News Correspondent, Jim Axelrod, on Kodak retiring the iconic Kodachrome Film after 75 years (http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/12/26/sunday/main7185884.shtml). "It (Kodachrome) just reproduces colors in a way that most other films never did, and it lasts forever," Miller said. "It's something that is difficult to do with just shooting digital until you bring it in to Photoshop and resaturate and do all your work in there. But just straight out the camera it doesn't have that density and dynamic ranges as the Kodachrome does just naturally."
Kent captured triathlete Carlos Lema at the foot of the George Washington Bridge as the sun was rising with his film of choice, Kodachrome.
For the baby boomers, Kodachrome will be missed!
