My Hero

The “my hero for writing something smart online” award for today goes to the noted photographer and printer Ctein, for this gem at the Online Photographer:

Most photographers are lousy printers. Most always were. The difference is that in the old days you had to master a substantial skill set in craft before you could demonstrate how lousy you really were. Now anyone can simply buy a technologically superior printer for $500-$1000 and immediately demonstrate their lack of competence.

Read this post (which, IMHO, is a bit of rationalization in an attempt to justify a personal preference, but that’s OK). Here is a bigger link for you to click on, even though I know this sort of thing is bad “style”.. Scan the comments for what Ctein said. As usual, if the post takes itself too seriously, the comments are an order of magnitude worse. Especially mine.
