Please feel free to add to the list. I'll get things started: - Referring to lenses as “glass”. - Referring to film developing as “souping”. - “Photography means nothing – it is life that interests me”, or something like that. With apologies to HCB, far and away my favorite photographer. - The merits of shooting RAW v. JPEG. Digital, I know, but what is more boring than listening to such drivel? - The merits of today’s FB v. RC papers. Seriously folks, does anyone actually think an RC print won’t archive as well, all else being equal? - Closet-gearheads who profess that the equipment really doesn’t matter. - On Photography, by Susan Sontag. - No-name photogs who think anyone would possibly want to dish out hundreds or thousands of dollars their “limited edition” prints. Check any issue of B&W for a reference. - The idea that photographs must "say something". PLEASE. Most of the photographs I love most say nothing to me. I just like looking at them.
