    Don't forget the prints were first judged for quality. Actually, all the rules of tone reproduction are what you're talking about. The fractional gradient method for minimum shadow gradient to insure quality. There's also film and paper matching and the preferred shape of the reproduction curve. These have all come from working backward.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I am glad Stephen brings up all this stuff. It is worth a mention. Someone has to do the dirty work.
    Sometimes I think Stephen enjoys pain.
    I wish someone would explain this in person to me.
    Keep it up.

    You should have seen the reactions when I first started talking about Zone System vs ISO speeds, or about Delta-X, or about the difference between film speed and exposure, or about flare. It takes time to digest new concepts especially those contrary to closely held beliefs.

    I find sometimes people actually seem to get personally offended by this stuff. The same thing tends to happen in the B&W processing forum where people are bent on defending the myths they've read or have been taught. It is all quite strange.

    Barry Thornton has named it "photographic zenophobia."
