I sense evaluating white and black photography with it's motion picture equivalent is much like comparing apples with grapefruits. They only usually are not exactly the same thing in feel and look. I talked about this at length in part 1 with this collection. http://besocial-blog.weebly.com/ When talking to digital photographer Hellen Van Meene she illustrate video as experiencing "miracle". Now I'm unsure what the techical expression for miracle is but creatively I understand exactly what Hellen indicates.
I'm sorry, but I am a little confused on what your saying?
