    SOme people who have seen Picker's exhibition prints have told me they were very good, and this is people whose opinion I respect. OTOH I too fell for the "reference" print and the video, thinking I was going to get some really good tips from the video which would show in the print. I too got the river with snow print and it was very dissapointing, even if I say so, I thought I was already making better prints than the one I got.

    I too bought 4 of the infamous example prints. They were pretty lame. I don't know what Fred was thinking.

    Calumet Chicago use to have a great Clearance table when you first walked in and it was always my first stop. One day I saw a print of his in there for $9.00. I recognized it as the close up of the side of the barn from his video. It was weak and it was then and there I started to question his approach.

    I thought I was the only one, oh well. I still keep the river and snow for grain comparison. RIP

    I thought his book was helpful , but I was never really impressed with his prints. After a while it seemed to me it was just a business he pick to make money.

    Well, you're entitled to your opinion, of course, but I don't think that's quite fair. Fred spent a lot of time photographing, and his workshops helped out a lot of people. I remember someone mentioning that he spent a tremendous amount of time simply looking at photographs. None of that fits in with someone who's just out to make a buck. So while I don't particularly enjoy his photography, I respect his zeal for the medium, and what he did to help promote high quality bw photography.

    RIP Fred.
