    I found this over at APUG.

    "[The new technology has] created an army of photographers who run rampant over the globe, photographing objects of all sorts, sizes and shapes, under almost every condition, without ever pausing to ask themselves, is this or that artistic? Â…They spy a view, it seems to please, the camera is focused, the shot taken! There is no pause, why should there be? For art may err but nature cannot miss, says the poet, and they listen to the dictum. To them, composition, light, shade, form and texture are so many catch phrasesÂ…" from E. E. Cohen, "Bad Form in Photography," in The International Annual of Anthony's Photographic Bulletin. New York and London: E. and H. T. Anthony, 1893, p. 18.

    The new technology was dry plates. Imagine how aghast these photographers were when film became popular. The more things change, the more they stay the same. ;)

    Yeah and Nikon was there to give them all d40s for a price lol. Just like kodak and agfa were before. Nothing ever changes,

    I went through it in the seventies when I began shooting wedding with 35mm. The sky is falling.
