Tell me something, is good photography getting much simpler? Or is it just me? Photographers will be a dime a dozen.
I think only time will tell. Right now, way over edited images are in style. Hopefully we will revert a bit because people are killing the high pass filter. High passing will be like what cross processing is now, tacky.
but yeah it is easier, darks rooms get to you after a while. Especially when the chemicals wreck all your cloths and start to eat through your hands.
I still like film, then I barely have to do anything on the computer. And it always looks better, at least for what I shoot.
Dan, we need to move away from that archaic style as much as possible. Film has never resulted in good shots. For example, in early photo magazines, the shots are terrible! They're all in black and white.
Further, all your photos should be taken using video instead-- digital video of course. Then you should save your files in a convenient RAM / RM format or post them on youtube in 8 minute intervals. That's how it's done today. Today's technology is perfect.
I'm glad they made stuff like this for people like me. I take photo's with a crapy point and shot auto everything. Then I can edit it and print a nice picture for my office. I don't think very basic people like me will ever take photo's or beable to edit photo as good as the pro's.
Now as for lets say middle ground skilled people, I'm sure products like this will bring their pictures more in line with the pro's.
