  • Yeah, that's pretty much it.  We foul up most when we compete in these things with others.  Inevitably we wind up trying to compete with those far better than ourselves not realizing that they ...
  • If it wasn't there would be no motivation to improve.  Eventually you get bored and move on and that can be the stuff of regret.
  • Love my Nikons or Olly when I get them out.  It's like looking through a big wall sized window after time in digital.  Waist level finders can be a bit dim though.
  • I was on a tram one time and there was this 20 something watching his favorite, can't miss sit-com on his "smart" phone with the screen about an inch and a half away from his face.  I said "sheesh ...
  • *chuckle*//  I do have my moments of temptation when I come across the fanatics and fanboys. Luckily never tempted enough to breach the digital divide through the screen though. It's a good job ...
  • Of course!  Film evil, all hail the digital god.  I just need a glance at the iPhone zombies wandering the streets en-mass to stagger back to the abilities of analog.  Digital is certainly a ...
  • :) What about the toll of the sourcing of materials for digital cameras such as tantalum and the like. (my film gear is all between 40 and fifty years old and still going well. My digital cameras ...
  • Replied in Agreed...
    A while back I worked out that with the cost of digital cameras I was getting pretty much the same number of acceptable images as I would have been getting had I been using analog and buying film ...
  • ...ruining what people expect from photography (with a lot of internut help of course). In a way you cover a piece of it in paragraph 2. HDR is the outcome of deep DR and shadow lift. While it has ...
  • Replied in Which one?
  • I have seen several images in my time that have had the same kind of flaw but from many different causes. I've seen it come from a faulty sensor mount on an old Canon A75, from corrupt downloads ...
  • Replied in I did that
    I've never seen a master photographer, only legends by consensus.
  • The computer industry is built on the premise that we never own the software we lash out a significant amount of cash for.  We only lease the option to use it until they decide that they don't ...
  • Now, now T.M.  That's not the thinking of an effective drone.  ;) One of us, one of us, one of us..... Then again, we have to learn the rules to rebel against them with good aim.
  • And we mature when we come to the fore and what we have learned falls back.  Then again there will always be a need for session instrumentals and wedding photographers.
  • No artist is an island.  We have to learn the language so that we can contribute to it and possibly expand it but you don't want to plagiarize do you and you wouldn't want to limit yourself to ...
  • I think you have missed the point here.  If you want to become a vanilla contributor to the mass of other vanilla images out there then by all means do what you are told but otherwise you have to ...
  • Replied in Welcome....
    ...to hoarders hell.  Yours is the logic that got me to where I am with a couple of dozen digital cameras and a functional range of analogs (among other stuff). I do think about the landfill side ...
  • My argument for people like that has always been that if they don't want to hurt me then they should respect me and hurt me just a little.  Deluding us into possibly thinking that we are perfect ...
