    its too bad people can't do what they want
    without someone giving them crap for it.

    this thread reminds me of the emails i received
    when i began making photograms on the now
    obsolete AZO paper ..

    too many haters

    An Epitaph

    Here lies a most beautiful lady,
    Light of step and heart was she;
    I think she was the most beautiful lady
    That ever was in the West Country.

    But beauty vanishes, beauty passes;
    However rare - rare it be;
    And when I crumble, who will remember
    This lady of the West Country?

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    These are copper plate photogravure prints, on Magnani Revere paper. Film or digital?

    So, would that classify these images/prints as garbage? The film vs digital is such a tired argument. My point is that the major difference is that the "garbage" now is paraded incessantly on the internet, where in the past, it sat in the attic in countless boxes, simply forgotten. Digital output is different, and sometimes not. At the end of the day, it is about what one does with it. Film of course doesn't make anyone an instant genius but there are many good reasons to still use it.
    Everything has a purpose and there are ways to put some digital capture to good use, with alternative processes, in my opinion. So, to simply dismiss the whole thing as "garbage" seems a little naive to me.

    Trick question?

    Aren't we all looking at them on a computer monitor of some sort?

    "There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."
