I am more than a little mystified. I have been coming to this forum and reading some interesting posts - questions and responses. It seems that people here know all about film and cameras and lenses and everything else under the sun (or strobe or tungsten). My question is "Where are the photos?" I see some guy go on at length discussing the difference between D76 at 1:29 and D76 at 1:30 and then when I click on his name to see his work there is nothing there! Why does someone pass along all this folklore and gossip and "personal experience" and then not show any photos? I like cameras and lenses and film too, but first of all, what's this whole thing about if not the photographs? How does one know if Joe Blow's evaluation of the merits of the 222.47mm Dagor - and its coverage, and its resolution, and its contrast - is worth anything at all without seeing his work? Do these guys actually take photos or are they just like the know-it- all guys at the bar who talk about women all day but have never actually dated one? I read a post about flash meters from some guy who sounded pretty smart. He said the so-and-so meter was dead on and gave him great results. Then I clicked over to his work and saw that several of his shots were not properly exposed (to my eye, anyway). I knew that I should take his opinion with a grain of salt. His idea of "good" was not my idea of "good" (neither of us being right or wrong). I have been taking and developing and printing and selling and exhibiting photos for well over 30 years, ten of those years as a professional photog in NYC. I have owned and shot Canon, Nikon, Leica, Hasselblad, Minolta, Olympus and various large format. As much fun as it is to blab about the hardware, I believe it is all about the photographs. Really, the photographs. So, why do all these guys put up all this advice without giving us an idea of what they produce and what they have to say in a photo? Don't they want to communicate with their photographs? Don't they want us to get any idea who they are and what they do so we can properly evalute the value of their advice for ourselves? Where are "the goods?"
