Quite often the darkroom tech tries something as a suggestion. If it works it works. One could quibble about whos print it is - his vision or mine. I don't care to quibble.

    Each approaches photography as best suits them. For me, wandering about the landscape studying the light, composing an image on the GG, exposing, developing, printing and presentation are all spokes on the same wheel. And when I keep the wheel turning, it is always surprising how far I travel.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I read from in a forum (can't remember if it is in here or LFPF) that you could say that some Photographers are "Hunters" and some are "Cooks". Some can be both while others choose to be only one.

    Scorpions in the Tropics are not that painful, their pinch is worse than their sting.

    Yes it is. At one time I had a really good printer who could do what I want in 2 or 3 iterations. Now I'm not that lucky.

    Even, if you are a hunter your sole purpose to get something to cook. Isn't it?

    No, not necessarily. For some it's the thrill of the kill (capture) and for others it is the trophy hung on the wall (and the rest goes to waste).
