Digital photography disqualified :-(
Aug 26, 2008

The question I sent to the League of NH Craftsmen:
~~~~~

As a NH photographer, I was interested in perhaps joining the League of NH Craftsment. However, I do not use film. Are there any allowances for digital photography into juried membership?

The League of NH Craftsmen's response:

Hello Keith,

Thank you for your interest.... .... it was decided and voted on by the Board of Trustees that digital photography did not have the necessary hands-on component in the creation of each individual photograph to qualify as a craft.
~~~~~~

Now... While their response was certainly polite, and it's certainly their prerogative to exclude digital, I'd like suggestions on how to respond.... Are they correct in stating that Digital Photography is NOT a craft, while film is?
