Professionals! With the cameras that are out today coupled with digital editing and touch up, who needs a pro? I have fooled around with my Nikons for 30+ years doing this type of thing with extension tubes and film. REal PIA to do this stuff. Now, point. click, like? Don’t like? delete, click away until you like what you get ;-))

Bob, I think there will always be a need for artistic and technical skills in creating good photographs. I don’t think professionals are going to become obsolete.

But you are certainly right that it is a whole new ball game with digital imaging. Back in the day, I’d take a few shots with my AE-1 and pray that they would look decent when they came back from being developed. Cropping had to be done when you shot the photo, because there was no such thing as post-camera editing for the amateur. And you could not afford to take too many shots of the same subject, because film and processing cost money!

The first thing I learned from my D-SLR is thank God I live in a time where I don’t have to pay for each and every underexposed, overexposed, wrong-ISO-setting, wrong shutter-speed picture I take! Charlie, the moon photo is my favorite, you guys are truly artist.

What I am saying is digital cameras open the world up to people who could not or wounld not have been able to do it before. Any amatuer can take as good a picture as a pro with very little effort. In the 70s when I started it was a monumental undertaking to take closeups like we get now with point and click. That takes the value of the pro way down in the market place. Just the way the old ball bounced ;-))

I just happened to remember some pics I took of the Golden Gate Bridge while driving across it...

I found them… and made a short video of them…

Hope this works!

I know it doesn’t rank in quality of the rest of your pictures… but, I thought you might like to see it UP Kinda Close… As close as you can get without walking across it… and YES you can… if you’re in the mood for a little stroll (hike)... LOL

Thanks for the kind words. I have always loved photography and before I got serious about wood working I had a complete darkroom setup and a huge collection of cameras.

Here’s another one from the same trip taken with a Hasselblad 500CM. The location is Grafton, located just outside of Zion. (I should note that the actual prints look much,much nicer than the scans)
