I have been around for only a month but I have made some observations and have a question pertaining to one of them.. Seems like, whether ltierature is requested in a thread or not, Bryan Peterson's name and the title 'Understanding Exposure' are being tossed around like peanuts at the old ball game. Now I own the book, bought it about seven years ago and it contains some very pertinant information for analog and digital photographers alike. And over at APUG he gets an occasional nod. But it seems like he's being canonized here. 'Bryan Peterson's old book like new for the millionth time, again'. 'Bryan Peterson walks on water'. 'Bryan Peterson conceives three headed twins'. Don't read a book, take some pictures. Close the laptop and open the camera case. Put down your hassles and pick up your Hasselblad. Oh, and the 'Look at my sig, neat things in my sig, links in my sig, check out my sig' thing is almost, AAAAAAUGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! Makes me wanna puke pink. Wow, not really in a bad mood, just realized this sounds more like a ***** session than anything else. I will retitle this non-aggressive rant or something. Original title was 'Understanding Bryan Peterson and TPF'.
