#24, April 1980. Even 28 years later the information and technique are worth studying. Brash, bordering on arrogant and full of himself Fred still managed to convey useful information in a no frills way that helped many a tyro on the path they now tread.
Anybody that actually set their tripod and camera up 50 times before they went out the first time benefited enormously from the exercise and if you didn't learn "different is not the same" and "Try It", you just weren't listening!
A searchable file would be pretty neat to have. I'll be curious to see where this goes.
Usually anyone worth studying or emulating can be brash and arrogant. The trick is to set that stuff aside and glean what useful bits you can. I hope you guys can pull this off, I've wanted to at least read his newsletters.
P.S. Missed the origination date of this thread, oh well.
