I don't really remember asking for opinions. Simply trying to raise the bar a little. Trying to make a difference in the photographic world. Some of my friends say why bother. But I keep saying its our obligation to assist. There's very little people on this or any site that have the background in photography or what I have invented that has changed photography nor the family lineage.
Shooting for the sake of shooting creates Mediocrity. Mediocrity is not a standard.
With all of this great equipment and softwares to take control of every facet of what and how to capture and image, the bar should be raising, but its not, people are settling. It still takes the same kind of skill set needed to execute a great images and then turn it into an exhibition image just like it did in the old days when we did it by hand and with lots of experimentation.
I have had this talk with Canon, Nikon, Hassy and also Phase in my gallery. Photography really has not changed since my family invented the first camera. Its still about getting it right the first time with the composition, vision, focus, lens and lighting. Then you have the fun of printing it.
By the way this is not meant towards anyone. Tim
