my teaching frustration

I was teaching photography at a university back in the film days. One of the great frustration for me and my fellow teachers was the number of visually talented students who could not master the mechanics of photography. That and the number of talented photographers who gave it up after they no longer had access to a college darkroom.

In that sense I'm very pleased to see photography reach a point where almost anyone can express themselves.

Of course this is bad news for the old-timers who got by on technical facility. Very tough for those who made their living by this path, but on the whole good for photography, I think.
