    Been reading some other stuff on this guy's blog since I found this thread yesterday. Lots of interesting observations -particularly on lighting etc. - in a Dean Collinsish kind of way.

    I read that article a little while back and quite enjoyed it. It's an excellent read.

    From the article:
    ... and you know you’re either lying or blind if you insist you can get great black and white conversions from digital ...
    Unfortunately you'll be hard-pressed to find anyone in the legion of black-plastic-dslrs-users who understands that

    Mark Twain said "Everyone complains about the weather but no one ever does anything about it." Well ... everyone complains about post-processing, but no one ever does anything about it :rolleyes:

    For me digital impedes creativity because I can see the results immediately. I see the LCD and I loose interest after that. Instant gratification kills it for me.

    As for the creative process, I just walk around with a camera and take pictures of what interests me. I also spend a lot of time on Flickr: there are zillions of film photographers there with tons of good work. Very inspirational for me.

    Very nice read. I wonder if his take is the same 2 years later, or is he actually changed his shooting!! I would like to see his follow up. He did an excellent job of writing.
