    Interesting. I agree with the list except for Adams and Shore. I've never much cared for Sibelius either come to think of it.

    I've never been one to like Shore's work but the example they showed actually looked good to me. I've always liked Adams. Go figure.
    ME Super

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    Ignore - as in "Don't emulate these folks - instead develop your own vision; you aren't going to do Adams/Arbus/HCB better than they did it themselves."

    Good advice, if you ask me. Have to say I agree with everything I read in the article.

    Especially good advice for LPV magazine, which seems full of photos by Eggelston/Shore/Arbus et. al. wannabe's.

    That's exactly the way I received the message of the article.

    A work of art is a corner of nature seen through a temperament. (Emile Zola)

    “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

    Cheap criticism and a cheap shot. Even if the idea is not to copy the style of other photographers when everyone of those photographers were inspired by their peers. And if you are inspired by those on the list, you can't copy them, but you can learn a valuable lesson by trying.

    That is what I love about today, lets just be grumpy and snarky because we are too cool to be affirmative and supportive. And there is nothing more enjoyable than tearing down our peers.
