    If I woke up, today, after a 150 year coma, I'd probably read the front page of a newspaper and choose to go back into a coma.

    If I woke up after a 200 years coma, I will probably check on the internet, but since I don't have an idea on how to use a computer then I will ask for my relatives to help me out. I will also check the photos from the past and see what I have missed.

    Don’t know, but if Ansel Adams woke up today, he would probably go digital.

    "I eagerly await new concepts and processes. I believe that the electronic image will be the next major advance. Such systems will have their own inherent and inescapable structural characteristics, and the artist and functional practitioner will again strive to comprehend and control them"

    Regards,
    Frank

    Good points. What about a 75-year coma?

    no, but i should have, the orb sounds like fun.

    i was mainly thinking of how advanced and backwards photography has become
    and how it is ez to be stuck in 1840 or 1910 or 2017 .. or anythng in between ..
    fun, interesting, and cellphone cameras make it so youdon't have to be rich to make photos

    i gotta run, the tigers milk is getting cold

    You would still find a thread on Photrio posted only a day or so before waking up, about bringing back Kodachrome :D

  9. +1 The first thought would be if his equipment still worked, and then the realization that 200 years had reduced his libido.
     
  10. Then he would be amazed that one did not have to sit in a chair with a head brace to have a portrait taken, the reduced size of the camera equipment and the improved optics. Walking across a street, since he did not know about cars, he would get run over and die.
