Re: ID needed - The Curse of Auto-Focus

picture of the bloom is the result of that idiotic feature of
"modern" cameras called "Auto-Focus". Notice how the
far background comes in nice and sharp? In the old days (don't I sound
like a real fogy?) the photographer made a simple adjustment so whatever
she or he wanted to be in focus WAS in focus. Now that little artistic
and scientific task is presumed by some computer chip that don't know
nuthin. It is especially bad when it comes to close-ups.
So you are an ancient geezer also who speaks in terms of REAL CAMERAS? i
used to be a photographer for one of my day jobs, a term I assume is
familiar to musicians and artists and I was GOOD. gimme a digital camera
and i am a MORON.
i am astounded however at the quality of the amateur photos in this
place, they out do the photos I saw in books taken by real cameras up
until about 12 years ago.
