It's amazing how much of stuff we discuss in depth and argue over at length really doesn't matter to people outside the Internet enthusiast forums and to some extent, it shouldn't bother us either.
This hand-made print thing is just one example. Archival processing doesn't really matter either - is my print worth keeping 150 years? So does the extra sharpness of certain lenses. Tonality of certain films and developers - who's comparing?
I do some of that because I care but often, I have to pull myself back and really think - is this necessary?
There's hobbyists and enthusiasts. There are consumers. There are professionals who cater to consumers.
Priorities and requirements aren't even close for many cases. Oh, yeah, then there are Internet forums!
