I have to admit that I do enjoy the writing of Kenny! It usually makes me smile and is an excellent read provided you take it in the spirit he writes it in. As he admits, he always tries to make it contentious, but with as much truth as possible.........

.....Like me, Kenny hates bullshit and the many people in photography who are 'up themselves' or too precious.

Here is his latest which seems to me to have much more than a grain of truth and to be particularly significant to this site,...enjoy, 'The Death Of Photography'....

Definitely a lot of truth there.

like that, thanks. Reminded me - after a brief discussion about a calendar for 2011 - that way too many people don't understand that "f/8 and be there" most definitely holds true still.
They just don't get that it's possible to retain something in your head, create several thousand shots - and that it's the bits around the edges that provide the real flavour to the results.
