    Thanks and.....

    First off I want to thank everyone who contributed to this thread. Just once in a while it is nice to see some involvement besides where my son went for vacation. The instructor was not overbearing; just what he said to me rang true. I need to push myself because I have been photogrphing by the Ct. shore;
    in NYC;and upstate NY in Columbia county. I'm about to take posession of an 8x10 camera. I'm interested in going back to where I've been;reshooting and printing on some of the fine papers I've accumulated (portiga,azo) and also doing a double in Platinum. Just waiting for the weather to cool off. All of the input was taken to heart........
    Thanks, Peter Schrager

    What is a theme in terms of photography? Earlier in the thread, Michael Smith said
    The themes (which are something different from the subjects)
    From an online dictionary, theme is
    an idea that recurs in or pervades a work of art or literature
    But in photography which is a visual & referential art form, what is an idea other than a group of related subjects. Isn't a series of pictures that portray baseball as played in the minor leagues both a subject and a theme? Do we have to succumb to gallerie-speak in order to speak of themes in photographic works, or is there a language of photography that enables us to recognize those themes? Just musing while my Azo prints finish washing ;-)
