How romantic

Just that. That I was doing PJ and I was using slides, like most PJ. The modern equivalent of Jpegs.

Now that I do Street Shooting as a hobby I apply the same principles of HCB: never spray and pray, take just one shot, for good or evil, and never rework it. 'There are no maybes':

Every image is a pass or fail. The 'cooking' in the digital darkroom is for commercial hacks.

A fascinating travel back in time, but I have to wonder how relevant that philosophy is today? It is not hard to imagine disparaging spray-n-pray if it meant I was stuck in a darkroom for the weekend! But I don't have a darkroom, nor do I need one. A romantic attachment to the days of yore is not going to make anyone a better photographer, or produce better photos.

I am not going to abandon my camera's metering nor will I eschew color or my 32G memory cards in order to pretend I am an award winning photographer from 1972.
