I visited my grand-parents today and spend a good deal of time talking about photgraphy with my Grandad. He's been shooting for 40 years, and had a gorgeous Leica M2 there (which he saved for for 2 years and bought for £108 the year I was born, 1969). He does the odd wedding now and again (and did mine) and I thought that was about it. Boy was I wrong - I found it hard to put into words just how good he is. He shoots medium format with Hasselblad kit and his main love is black and white landscapes. He's just taken part in an exhibition with the Crown Monochrome Group in Bath and had his prints there - they were stunningly, stunningly good. This link has some of his (he exhibited about 40 in total) and doesn't even begin to show how good they were in front of me http://website.lineone.net/~crownmono/CrownMono2.html (His are "by David Lewis") We were playing with our kit all afternoon - me with his Hasselblad and him with my D70. It was hilarious as neither of us had a clue what to do. I thought a gun had gone off when the shutter went on his though! We were talking about photography now and I expected him to say that today's is easy. Interestingly he said it was a good thing. In his opinion he thinks the most important thing is the person behind the lens, not how the picture is taken. No film vs digital snobbery at all. He's also an ARPS and doesn't ever mention it. Just has a certificate hung on his wall.
