That's right, you quote freakin' Thom Hogan as some kind of authority on . . . something.  Thom is the Ron Burgundy of the photographic blogosphere: his posts "smell of finely bound leather books and rich mahogany," but seldom include a worthwhile photograph and never link to a professional portfolio of any kind.  "I'm kind of a big deal," his language says, but his photography--or complete lack thereof--definitely says otherwise.

Man, anyone can have opinions about gear, but Thom's results (like this week's Muskrat Love blog header) suggest his aren't exactly of the "authoritative" variety.

Great troll, Mira Burgundy. You're a real hoot but at least you're fearlessly unafraid of displaying your own confusion.

You did give me a know-it-all short shrift, Photoreddi, but then I suppose I had it coming for giving Mistermejia a little know-it-all of my own.

However, I *do* agree with Mira about Thom Hogan.  The dude features almost no photography on any of his blogs about photographic equipment and technique.  It's strange.  And what little photography he does post--the header to "bythom.com," for example--is usually pretty rough.

This isn't to say that Thom shouldn't blog to his heart's content; but, regarding photography, I listen to people who show as much as they tell.

(Which, by the way, is one of the reasons I listen to Mirabelle!)


Very true.
