    Mary Ellen Mark video

    One of the best--and shooting film here, too. There's a bit of product placement but it's no infomercial for Profoto.

    The IPA site is worth a bookmark.

    I like the concept of not using the preview on digital cameras, waiting to see the image at a real size. Its interesting to hear that even as accomplished as she is she still has a drive that the next image might be a iconic one.

    Chimping is an ADHD-like affliction. Have a friend who plastered black gaffer's tape on an LCD cover to stop himself doing it.

    The process of "chimping" enables a negative approach to artistic creation whereby the "artist" is consumed in a feedback loop guided by projected intent of the final "product." They no longer let the materials, process, and approach fall as they may - but instead try to overtly control the entire process. It's an entirely broken methodology.

    Result? Sterile, lifeless, engineered, inorganic, crap.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    That's a BIG tar brush. Fashion is often shot with tethered Hasselblad H cameras with the photographer concentrating on posing and set-up(just like film), not chimping. Assistants do that.

    Thanks for the link.

    As far as chimping goes, who cares. Find a method that works for you. I'm not going to criticize a photographer for using Polaroids. Personally, except for maybe confirming exposure, chimping just gets in the way. But if a photographer chimps and makes great images, more power to him/her. BTW, you need to put Mary Ellen's comment in context--she is referring to students.

    Yeah pretty much. Nice video. Thanks for posting it.
