    More than the Weston meter?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    One fellow was tall and liked to climb up on cars to photograph the landscape. The other fellow was short and closer to the ground level.

    I agree for Weston, but even Edward considered Brett the better photographer.

    This takes nothing away from Ansel Adams.

    Carleton Watkins or Alfred Stieglitz.

    Adams sought out Stieglitz for advice and direction he also emulated a lot of Watkins work.
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    do I have to pick one of them? For me their work is on par - some of it exceptional, some just very, very good..

    funnily enough I also tend to prefer Brett Weston's work to his fathers....

    But given a choice of a photographer from this era I would pick Manuael Alvarez Bravo, Paul Outerbridge or Walker Evans as having far more influence on me
    A camera is only a black box with a hole in it....
