I had a mixed experience in college. The humanities professors thrived on total BS. But I did a lot of independent study and research in sciences
under some of the best of the best. Any so-called art professor probably would have shot me after a few weeks. ... they were the most
stuck-in-a-rut types of all (the more avante garde they got, the more they all looked the same, painted the same, spoke the same, etc.).
Technique and craft can be taught; art requires some kind of native instinct, which would be vastly aided if the entire term for "art" was
erased from existence. Personally, I've found Kodak's graphs and tech data sheets on these color neg films to be spot on.
