Quote from: Slobodan Blagojevic on February 20, 2013, 02:55:32 pmIt seems that this thread has finally found its true calling, best expressed in two words: neck and hanging?
Quote from: Eric Myrvaagnes on February 20, 2013, 09:19:57 pmNow if I ever saw Rhein II hanging from somebody's neck, I really would be impressed.

Quote from: RSL on February 20, 2013, 09:23:38 am Now you have to understand that I have an 83-year-old neck, so I've done a couple things to keep the weight off of it.
Quote from: Rob C on February 22, 2013, 04:39:19 amSurely, Ray, you don't subscribe to the notion that it's the camera that makes the difference? Or the neck?Rob C
Quote from: Ray on February 22, 2013, 08:46:46 amWhat difference are you referring to, Rob?
Quote from: RSL on February 22, 2013, 03:01:27 pmI did switch to a D800 for a lot of my work, but I still love my D3 for certain things. Early next month I'll shoot the dress rehearsal for a play. I shot a rehearsal with the D800 in December since my D3 was at Nikon for repair, and the weight of several hundred 36.3 megapixel files was pretty intimidating.

Quote from: Ray on February 22, 2013, 10:27:33 pmHi Rob,Cameras can make a big difference to the resulting picture. Didn't you know that? For example, if you don't have a camera, you can't take a photograph at all, so no resulting picture, zilch, nada, unless you take up painting of course.
Quote from: Rob C on February 23, 2013, 10:13:35 amYou are missing the entire point of photography, which is fundamentally nothing more than vehicle to a sublime emotional experience.
Quote from: Rob C on February 23, 2013, 10:13:35 amSnapping's like fishing (obviously) and you will one day discover that the very best snaps are the ones that you simply didn't make for the fundamental reason that you were so wrapped in the moment (even, sometimes, decisively so) that the distraction of finger on button would have absolutely removed the thin, evanescent patina of magic, that quasi-erotic sense of oneness with the creation before your eyes, that not making the shot actually allowed you to preserve within the eternity of your inner consciousness.
Quote from: BernardLanguillier on February 23, 2013, 09:36:36 pmRob,This is your best post ever.The most amazing thing is that we don't really need a camera not to take the shot. It ends up being a call for simply seeing. The implications of your fishing analogy are so profound that I'll spend my whole NRT-BKK flight playing with it without touching a camera!Cheers,Bernard
