  2. 2. “I have often thought that if Photography were Difficult in the true sense of the term - meaning that the creation of a simple photograph would entail as much time and effort as the production of a good watercolor or etching - there would be a vast improvement in total output. the sheer ease with which we can produce a superficial image often leads to creative disaster” - Ansel Adams If you are messing with technology, then you are not getting your work done. It is only when the technology becomes invisible that true creativity can take place. Photography is about contradictions
