This was an observation I made yo myself some time ago. When the first "family portrait" packages were available right off the printer, and Grandma needed a magnifying glass to tell if it was "real" or not, then the scale was tipped for the commercial world.

The rest of us chemical afficinados became hobby practitioners.

Nothing wrong with that in my mind. I'm a hobby guy, not a pro.

Sure a few high dollar portrait artists still work in oil professionally. And sure there will be folks pouring glass plates by hand. But the mainstream won't look back or shed a tear.
