Hans that's the best suggestions I've heard for a few days, the first round's on meclogz said:mmm...yes Tony...you're right in a way....how about continuing the discussion over a pint at the Lens & Tripod next Saturday?

Karl your no stranger than anyone else who sees the world through a viewfinder and at least it keeps you off the streetFilmIs4Ever said:Are you saying that I'm strange? ;-) People think that shooting film is strange too.
Michael youth and the spirit of rebellion are wasted on the young Some good points well made, although again some of the "best" IMHO work(ed) alone with only a model and camera for company.blansky said:I would bet that the art directors for fashion ads today are young people, targeting a young audience, and the sophistication of the past by an older creative team is long gone.
blansky said:The fact of the matter is haute couture is still around and photographed well by people like Avedon, Scavullo, Screbneski (sp?),
donbga said:Was photographed by Avedon and Scavullo - both are deceased. Skrebneski is retired.
blansky said:.... people today are far more casual in their appearance than back then. Many people go to work dressed in casual clothes, out to dinner etc where back in the 40s and 50s everyone made a point of wearing suits ....
you can say that again!
the world is more casual, and back in the "the day" people made it a point to look good.
it seems that these days people make it a point to dress down, not up. i remember seeing photos of some holywood-types ( can't remember their names ) but they looked like they either rolled out of a grave, or they were a hobo doing the freight train hop ..
