Went to a talk by David Burnett Wednesday night.
3 hours straight of reminiscences, technique etc.
He uses a Speed Graphic to shoot sport - now!
With Aero Ektar and a Wide schneider (90/2?)
And a Holga to shoot presidents.
He had some nice shots of himself among all the huge tele's at the last royal
wedding - with the Speed Graphic on a tripod.
Saddest point of the night was the agreement that it would impossible for
someone to have his career now and in the future. The work and opportunities
are gone. News photogs and documentary photogs are a dying class.
