    Why do you keep picking on people who love darkroom work?

    I am not picking on anyone, I am making a statement about some traditional workers who pick on digital workers, who are relentless, claim they are frauds &c. I am someone who loves darkroom work, I make my own photo emulsion from scratch, I have been at it (dr work ) for 40+ years, been coating dry plates for almost 40 years as well, but I don't go around insulting people who don't do as I like. there was only 1 person, a guy name Jorge who was kind of famous for being relentless about his dislike for digital and claiming that all printer based photographs were utter sh*te ( yada yada yada ), until Christopher Jordan met up with him and showed him some beautiful prints, and the next posts Jorge made on web fora said he was very wrong, and he'd never insult digital workers again ( and he didn't ). as I said most people will never admit great stuff can be made via printer, and it's weird if you ask me.

    I have seen more crappy darkroom prints than bad inkjet prints. And about as many mediocre ones from both techniques. A good print depends on the printer (the person) with a good eye and the ability to work the medium.

    That is it, of course. Digital technology has progressed to the point (or past the point) where there is objectively anything superior about the darkroom printing process. The limitations are at the operator level, and that’s the way the arts always end up. Most inkjet prints are throwaway - and most darkroom prints are throwaway. Always has been that way.

    Now can you guys get back to the entertaining stuff about what is art?

    All digital for prints I send out to be printed. Color is 100% digital.

    I still have my analog darkroom but process only black and white. Not as much as I used to.

    Going on vacation soon thinking of taking one of my Rolleiflex cameras using black and white film. Gives me something to do when I return homebin my darkroom during the winter.

    Calfmike - show em where? Over the web???? All that's gonna do is tell people what a miserable visual medium the web itself is, or how good the scanning was or wasn't. And we already know all that.
