    Photographic Quote of The Day..

    "Once we have mastered the Zone System, or BTZS, and have refined our technique and process to achieve that perfect negative, we still need to constantly remind ourselves that a perfectly exposed and processed picture of a turd, is still the picture of a turd." Max Marinucci, 2011

    ..as I was taking a walk this morning, trying to find some inspiration

    No, it is still a picture of a turd...otherwise our hands would stink handling the photo...
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Very true, Vaughn I will make that correction, as I wouldn't want anyone to catch any diseases

    Ansel Adams had a more elegant way of conveying the message.

    “Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”

    Ansel Adams, from the introduction to The Negative - The New Ansel Adams Photography Series / Book 2

    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    ...but why beat around the bushes?
    Having said that, Ansel Adams may have been able to make a turd look pretty good too... as long as there were clouds involved
    My vote for "best turd" would have to go to Ralph Gibson though, because he would be far removed from technique and process and he'd make it look like a million bucks. He'd just burn it in Rodinal 1:25 while tossing the tank around the room and make it a best selling masterpiece, while giving birth to a new approach..the BTTS (Beyond The Turd System).

    Which is worse-making a photograph of a turd, or being deterred?
    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.
