Re: The Past "Photography" the Future "Imagery" Not for ME!

Think of the days when each and every shot cost MONEY and was composed, waiting for the light, several takes then the lightbox, sorting for the best.

Hi Frank. While I admire your sentiment, and I think that that approach to shooting is awesome, I have to say that I think all photographic undertakings require some artifice and trial and error. The photographer or filmmaker isn't so much capturing the exact right image or moment as he is capturing many images and moments and looking for the best in the editing stage. This has always been the case. It reflects the fact that we're not the creator as much as the created, trying to capture a piece of creation.
