neo_nights: One more thing: did anyone actually read the WHOLE study?
Anyone who has done an academic research knows how frustrating/infuriating it is to spend months/years reading, reasearching and such, write pages and more pages about something and then the press just publish a couple of lines about it, about its conclusion, and then everyone starts b*tching about it.
Be careful with pre-judgements, people.
If the authors had released the entire study for free, I would have read it. However, to pay $35.00 to read an article of possibly dubious quality - nope.
I'm afraid that they just have to live with being misquoted, if only quotes are available to the general public for free.
None of the above. Manual mode and control of aperture, ISO and shutterspeed. That and nothing else.
There are loads of people with impressive skills in different areas, who are unable to make money from their skills. Your dentist may be an excellent violinist. Your bus driver a wonderful painter. Your bank clerk a magnificent poet. It is just that they are not quite good enough to make a decent living from it. That is tragic but that is life.
My deepest respect to the skills of the laid off photographers, but time seems to have caught up with their jobs.
I assume you have to have tried all of them for a few days to qualify to vote?
