    If your pictures aren't good enough, you aren't close enough.
    Robert Capa

    “The contemplation of things as they are, without error or confusion, without substitution or imposture, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention”

    Francis Bacon

    It's O.K. as long as you do it at your own convenience.

    Roger Hicks posted this at RFF the other day ... quoting himself

    Photography sometimes attracts people with a very high opinion of their own expertise, and a predilection for bossing others about. Listen to some of them, and you will be amazed that silver halide photography ever succeeded at all, given that it is so difficult, complicated, and expensive. Except it isn't.

    Yes, but if the turd is artfully arranged, interestingly lit, and has nice texture - say some organically grown corn, for instance - it will be a good picture of a turd.
