I miss noxious chemicals…

My beautiful old Crown Graphic.

My beautiful old Crown Graphic.

…but on the other hand I love the fact that something that might have taken a day, can be done so quickly now.

I miss the enforced long thought processes that old school photography had, but I love the fact that the feedback loop from concept to draft to finished image is lightning fast now.

I read an article this morning where the photographer said they spent a week of back to back shoots to build a portfolio and got business out of that. That would have been impossible when I came out of uni in ’97. The art form has been turned upside down in the last 15 years, but given that photography was always the great democratiser, that’s how it should be.

Isn’t it?
