I am a hobbyist. I simply do not have the time money nor inclination to do everything Ansel espouses. I have no problem with him doing it. I'm glad he did it. I am a fan of his art and in my ill informed opinion he has done more for the field of photography than any other single artist I can think of. I'm still not going to run out and get a $300 spot meter tomorrow. That doesn't invalidate Ansel's technique. Me using an incident meter and getting on with taking my pictures is not a shot across the bow of Ansel.

    Seriously man I am just giving my honest narrow opinion. I may have been a bit blunt. It's art. I was answering a question that really has no right answer. If people like his stuff that is their business. I like plenty of artists that other people don't like.

    Why would you assume I was defending Ansel with that comment? I must be one of the few on APUG who doesn't go weak at the knees for him! I was teasing, not attacking.

    haha, very true and just my way of looking at it.

    I respect contemporary art, but I prefer Della Francesca to Nitsch and Mühl
