    "When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."

    If I felt I was being "picked on", I would try to ascertain why.

    Then I would sort it out one way on another.

    Pretty sure it's because I actually go out and take photos where many are just armchair shooters... So when I post actual results showing proof that I've done what I'm talking about, they get all puffy because they can't show proof themselves and start spouting curve graphs and lens stats and tell me it's just that I have a scanner and don't print

    It's ok, the proof is in the pudding. I only actually get upset when I'm asking a question and I either get "you can't do that" or "I don't want you to do that, I want you to do what I do" instead of answering the question because they don't want to simply admit they don't have the answer...

    I'm totally ok admitting I don't know SHIT about photography compared to some, but I have a lot of real world experience trying... And each failure (and there are a lot, is another lesson learned.

    "armchair shooter" told you you can not do things and should not do things and spouted off
    graphs and charts and lens data criticized because you scan and don't print and picked on you in this thread ?

    weird ... maybe it's the vietnamese food i had for dinner last night that is affecting my reading ability ...

    (added later )
    just ate some more asian food, i still don't see the remarks you are referring to ..
