October 17, 2007




I've been reading your blog for quite a while now, I really like seeing how your past predictions have come true. The points you made in the distant past seem logical (inevitable in fact) with 20/20 hindsight.

Here's an idea for blog post -- how about predictions you made that missed the mark? It might be interesting...

1967 you made this prediction (forty years ago) ... and I don't think it has come true at all. I just purchased a brand new meter a few months ago and it has improved my workflow quite a bit.

A flash meter saves me wasting time popping and chimping when working with strobes, and saves me struggling to hold a grey card in front of a subject with my toes while I get the cameras metering system to read from it.

Eventually, I'll probably learn to look at a scene and say, "That's f11 at 1/125 for ISO 100," but while I've got the Atlantic ocean behind my ears, the light meter does me proud.

Plus, the Technika is nearly ready to shoot, and I've just received a Hassy 500c/m, so no TTL metering there, then!
