    Malcolm Gladwell and 10K hour rule : This presumes that the cerebral cortex, cerebellum, eyes, hands are all operational and in use during the great majority of the time.

    I am a pathologist, my job involves "a good eye" (pattern recognition and visual memory), general medical knowledge, and reasoning/ "common sense". If you don't keep improving all three skill sets, you don't become expert.

    You can't block up the shadows or blow the highlights.

    I don't know who said it but it was definitely a rule I received from on high somewhere for printing-except very tiny areas of the print as these areas of pure black or white would "key" the tonalities of the print.
    Thanks,

    Several famous people taught that. That makes breaking the rule even more fun.

    Most of the aesthetic beliefs could be boiled down to "Your pictures should look like my pictures". Mortensen and Adams argued this for years...
