while replying to a post here in the Forum remembered how my first prints in black and white looked. After some consideration I have been thinking about the differences then and now.
It is really pretty amazing comparing photography then (1972) and now.
In 1972 I had to bring my exposed film to my local chemist to get it developed, this took about 2 weeks - not very effective for learning about exposure or composition, but it probably made you think more about what you were capturing (you had to develop everything).
Now we have direct feedback and can see the results in (milli) seconds, and simply erase bad results
Does this make us better photographers? What do you think.
