    I took no offense. It was nice to hear someone make a distinction between being an artist and the whole amateur-professional dialogue.

    I agree.  This is an excellent article by Russ Lewis.

    Congratulations. Great choice.  Since you have 2 monitors you can use the same external calibration device for both of them.

    It is heads and shoulders above the LG 27″ 5k display sold by Apple (I tried it).

    You can do the same in the US. Staples even gives you a discount on your next purchase when you return cartridges to them. And they take any ink carts, even the large pro models.

 – Film to Digital Paradigm Shift Part 2
    Reply #4 on: May 25, 2021 at 1:52 am

    Thank you Terry. I would be interested to hear the opinion of photographers ‘with no film era influences.’ My experience with teaching writing is that new practitioners are just as resentful of the paradigm shift as older practitioners, albeitedly for different reasons. I believe this is true with photography. It is tempting to assume that photographers who started with digital and never used film are free of all limitations. In reality few are. The temptation to follow the previous paradigm is powerful both for previous and for new practitioners, for the reasons stated in my two essays.
