Re: Digital Photography Is A Lying Experience


I do like him but he's well off the mark. In the 1970s, part of my training was spending a couple of afternoons per week learning to spot and retouch. Meanwhile the publicity dept. were very skilful at airbrushing, re-colouring, chopping out unwanted bits of background as well. This of course was done by the very sort of magazines Don worked for at the time on their "celeb" reports and adverts.
You've got the continual arguments about some of Robert Capa's work being messed about with, and so on.
Organisations are cottoning on, and often ask for the original digital to see that.

Re: Digital Photography Is A Lying Experience


I note that there is a McCullin retrospective running at Hauser & Worth in Bruton until the end of January. I have always admired him and his work, one of my photographic heroes. I will be intrigued to see his Somerset landscape work. It is very dark and gritty, and represents a style that seems quite rooted in the 1960/70s, probably quite technically 'incorrect' according to today's standards, but I suspect extremely 'emotional'.

The more interesting still for me, as I spent 5 years at school in Bruton. Those Somerset vistas lie at the very core of my interest in photography.

Re: Digital Photography Is A Lying Experience


An interesting insight into great photographer's mind. I really don't care about film vs. digital thing but Don's approach presented in the video is very informative, especially regarding the light and not taking eye away from the viewfinder (I tend to look on my LCD a lot to check exposure). I also heard Salgado blacks out his LCD with a tape emoticon
