Were these pics taken digitally or on film?

I shot these shots on my Canon 5D mkiii I went digital many years ago when my commercial clients started wanting digital files and local commercial labs dried up and you couldn’t find technicians that could provide high quality drum scans anymore.

Almost everything today is digital. Clients want to own the images now and take the card directly from my camera, have their graphic arts department download the card and reformat it before sending it back empty. Back in the day shooting film photographers always owned the images unless agreed to with the clients before hand.

Hopefully, the photographers are compensated more to not own the images.

I am retired now but like any industry doing work for people is always open to negotiation. I gladly gave away my rights to the images to get a higher day rate. That way I didn't have to keep track of what or where the clients were using the images. I shot for swimwear companies, fashion companies, casinos, magazines etc. Companies pay a lot of $$$ in many places to market themselves so photographers have to advocate for themselves. Unfortunately there is almost no $$$$$ in photography anymore.

@Fido  That's absolutely correct!  Ohio State wanted all 28 years of my negatives.  They "asked" nicely but I wasn't even shooting for them.  Shooting for the papers they never asked/didn't care what happened to them as long as they got a few nice shots.  I never gave the University anything yet a few others did.  Yup, theirs went right into the University archives and are now available for purchase with no photo credit.  When I saw them starting a marketing department I knew it was coming.  Along with all those starting to shoot digital.  Miss it but made the right decision I think.  Ya don't make squat shooting but you have the best seat in the house while working.  :)

I've done some direct scans of 3D items, like coins and "flat" flowers, also used it as a surrogate microscope; scan at highest res and them use Zoom feature in my photo app de jure. By this method, I was able to show an engineer some galling on a fastener. He suspected it but we had no microscopes over 10X around. 

Here's a Bird of Paradise with some black cloth behind it (lid of scanner up)

What does the scanner work out to in terms of MB

Is it fair to think of the glass as the aperture, quite large, with a single focal length?

What have you experienced as the depth of field, 1 or 2 inches ?

That looks like a piece of art glass. Very cool.
