The post about getting rid of the "F/stop" definition turned into such a technical subject that most photographers become lost in the jargon. I think that too many photographers become so embroiled in the technical aspects that they forget that photography is more about being creative .

I imagine most would not disagree that "photography is more about being creative", but understanding the technical side doesn't get in the way of that end. Well, maybe for some it does, like this guy who said:

Further proof that the equivalence people have done permanent damage to the art of photography.

By the way, the guy who said that is the same guy who started the thread you're referencing and didn't return to post in it.

Anyway, I must confess that I'm not quite sure how the "equivalence people" managed to do that. Maybe we need some people to come forward and tell us their stories of how good their photos were until they read all the discussions on Equivalence, and how their photography suffered as a result -- like before and after photos:

Before I learned about Equivalence:

After I learned about Equivalence:

You know -- something like that.

No, she would need to be jumping up and down with her fingers in her eyes screaming "nanananana, I can't hear you."

To be honest, of all the facts that people don't want to know about, Equivalence is pretty near the bottom of the list with regards to importance.Then again, so is everything on DPR, so I don't know why Equivalence gets singled out.

True, I suppose, especially here in the US the last couple of years. Even simple facts and realities of nature are 'fake news' to the people who don't want to hear them.

I guess we should be happy that such precious children are present in the world, though, and that some of us are lucky enough to have them living with them and acting as their models.
