Hmmmm.... you also need:

* Why NOT to shoot raw
* Life can exist without Lightroom
* More stuff too.......your project is really great. But your information base is way too narrow.

Regards.....Respects.......and GREAT shoulders..... Bob

If you're going to say that, you might as well offer a few more suggestions rather than simple, somewhat sarcastic oppositions to certain categories of information provided by Kelly. I don't know, like maybe...

Commercial Photography
Fine Art Photography
Photojournalism
The New Topographics, Walker Evans, Cindy Sherman, students of the Bechers, Gregory Crewdson...
Programs for furthering one's photographic education
other careers in Photography...

Unlike you, Kelly knows what I mean. All you are suggesting is adding more headings.....NOT improving on the knowledge base within the headings. Many of the headings....maybe even most, had their origins in the world of film sensitometry. Much of that information cannot be 100% accurate when applied to digital applications, which is what many people know exclusively. It needs to made more clear if confusion down the line is to be avoided.....
No one on the forums has more respect for Kelly than I do.....you have no idea....and my remarks to him were in the context of that relationship.....Bob

I don't see that coming across too well in your first post. Reading it, I see:

Quote:

I'm getting the impression you want to see more information, but there's little to lead me to believe you want expanding on information within the categories. You might very well mean that, but if I'm not getting that the first time around, others (including Kelly) might not get that either.

I was under the impression that we were in a public forum, posting for everyone to see, not comments meant for a select few individuals "in the know". Please excuse me for intruding on your own private conversation in the Photography Talk forum, on a stickied thread.

We all have relationships with members outside of the forums, but we also have private messaging. I'm sure you know as well as I do that if we post a message to another one in any open forum, someone else will read it and respond to it.

EDIT: This last bit is rather ironic, as I just included it in public, but at the time I thought everyone should read it. Sorry everyone.

When did you start having to speak for Kelly?

You're not a very peaceful fellow tonight.....Just leave it alone. I posted with good intentions, but there's always someone who twists and distorts things. Tonight, it is not me. Regards, Bob

And a hearty welcome back to all! Michael, I was shocked to see that I, even I, KellyL, have surpassed you in posting...when I first joined you were on here a LOT more than me! School must be keeping you very busy.

Bob, dang you man, why must you insist on accurate exposure? You know it makes my mouse lonely. Interestingly enough, I was thinking about our conversations last night whilst reading an article by Yervant. He shoots in JPEG at medium resolution on his 1Ds Mark III. He said that you better nail your exposures to do so, but he shoots so many shots when he is on location with a bride that he doesn't want to shoot raw.

I was very honored that both of you commented in my thread. No kidding, it makes me feel kinda special.

Our photography class is merely 6 hours long, meets on three nights, and gives a basic introduction to the camera and is very biased towards the teacher...ahem...

You boys make my life interesting!

I think Kelly, judging from your avatar, that you have the "exposure" just right...., Bob

I noticed that, hence my added comment on irony. =)

Have a good one guys.

We need to count how many posts you and I have in the banning thread before we can accurately compare. =)

Michael, believe it or not, I gave up on that banning thread!

Welcome Wingnutt. Glad things could be of use.
