    Not bad, and it balances out a few of the ones that focus on digital. Here's a direct link--

    Thanks Jorge. Here's a link for the lazier or more digitally challenged among us. I don't usually tune in until someone here brings up the topic so might have missed it. 20 centuries from now when the nuclear dust has settled someone will do a study on the interesting 150 year phenomenon when humans recorded themselves. Before and after will somehow be lost. Vanished.

    He made a very good point...

    ...about the importance of a solid knowledge of (traditional) photographic principles and how they will improve a photographers abilities regardless of whether she/he intends to use analog or digital equipment.
    That same "good foundation of knowledge" applies regardless of what trade a person persues in life, and becomes more important as the stakes go up. Commercial jet pilots who "fly by wire" may only spin the heavy metal they're flying in a computer simulator, but they started by learning how to spin Cessna 150s in real time.
    It was a very enjoyable "blog" to listen to.

    (I wonder what "blog" is an acronym for?)

    cheers

    It's not an acronym. It's short for "weblog," but some would argue that the LW thing is an "audiolog" (unless you want to say it's short for "Brooks's log").

    A lot of educators never push further than miniature cameras for their curriculum -- why should they keep pushing 35mm? I suspect that Brooks' argument will fade when you see that the Big Boys -- RIT, Brooks, etc -- are keeping their darkrooms and their large-format instruction. Community Colleges would be doing their students a disservice to keep teaching them how to use 35mm instead of digi. MOST photo students, sad to say, are just trying to fill-in their distribution requirements, not expand as artists.

    At local camera club for a print judging competition we had a recent MFA grad (U of Miami, I believe) for judge. She kept emphasizing colors should be super saturated, including B&W prints. I entered a sepia print which she complained for not having enough deep black tones. She also couldn't figure out what type of paper another photographer had used for his "digital" AZO print. From other comments, it appeared that her understanding of history of photography began with Maplethorp. What are they teaching for an MFA grad to be so ignorant.
