I take it that you are a digital kind of guy. I still prefer my 35mm, Don't think I will ever change,Your work Bob is Magnificent. You really need to EBay some of it.
Thanks! With film every mistake costs the same as a good shot, and I make more mistakes than I do keepers. With digital I don't have to keep score.
Years ago I had a 4x5 Speedgraphic. Now there was a god damned camers.
It's not unusual for me to get home with over 100 shots on a memory card. With birds in particular you don't get many static or posed shots, or time to set up before a shot. You judge exposure by instinct, try for shots at other settings, and hope one hits the target.Film would mean a darkroom, or dropping off numerous rolls of film, and waiting, then scanning them into digital format, just way too tedious and expensive.
Oh your point is very valid and well taken. I used to burn through the film looking for the one shot that was exactly what I wanted Sometimes a whole roll or maybe two on one subject in one pose. but with subtle differences of light and shadow OR expression if it was woman or beast.Probably can do more on the computer as well more so than one could ever do in the dark room,I just hit my technological limit and comfort zone about 10 years ago and never went any further.Hell I look at a BEST BUY Flyer and I have no idea what 90% of that shit is for. I have a cell phone that I take a picture with occasional. Also understand I can do video, but do not ask me how nor do I cat.
