"RE: Technique"

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>When digital photography was a new topic to me, I bought at least a hundred issues of various magazines. Then in about three years' time I realized that most magazines offer diminshing returns as the (pseudo-)technical articles repeated old stuff and told me very little I didn’t know already. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

I've been reading photography magazines (when I could afford them) since 1952. It's amazing the stuff I see in magazines today that is virtually identical the the stuff in the 50s and 60s, with the exception of occasional forays into digital jargon.

And the product reviews are the same puff pieces, updated with digital jargon.

Well, after all, its the same thing: Do those things that enhance quality, don't do the bad things --- and the good and bad things all seem to be the same then as now, with Tri-X or D800, except that our operating parameters are (now) much wider than with Kodachrome and Tri-X.
