    Re: Darkroom vs Scanning

    The same thing "art" means, i.e. anything anyone wants it to mean, i.e. nothing. :)



    Because you're Randy, not Art, of course. :)



    No different than all "art." Find someone who'll buy...

    No, just plain photographer. Exactly the same as just plain painter. Or just plain violinist.

    "Art" is a meaningless BS word used by those who seek to elevate themselves. It works, because...

    Re: Darkroom vs Scanning

    Nooo, whether something is "art" depends upon the viewer, since "art" can mean whatever anyone wants it to mean, and is therefore a meaningless word. When human waste and its associated appliances...

    Yeah, that's why my favorite contemporary printing method is non-pigmented dye ink (Canon PRO-100 or PRO-200) on Hahnemuhle FineArt Baryta Satin. :)

  6. Re: Baltic or Finnish Baltic Birch for lens boards?

    I bought four lensboards from Dick Phillips to go with my new Compact II in 1998. About ten years later when I wanted a couple more, Dick replied that he could no longer get quality plywood for that...
