Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

It is sad to see him go, I came across his work through one of my other hobbies, his skill in model making would make a SFX guy weak at the knees and he always got the camera just right as if it was a real street.

May he Rest in Peace.

Amazing, I saw another video a few years ago that showed him setting up a shot.
