I just love how sometimes he contradicts him self. I've read him from now and then and every time there is something he says that opposes to past comments he made. You forgot the comment where he always shoots jpg's and needs no raw because he always get it right from the camera.

And don’t get me started with Ken’s take on color management and sRGB. As silly as the stuff you posted about photography.
It's hard to find anything that isn't silly on that site.

I never take anything that Ken Rockwell says as being serious.  On his "About" page, he even states "I occasionally weave fiction and satire into my stories to keep them interesting. I love a good hoax. Read The Museum of Hoaxes, or see their site. A hoax, like some of the things I do on this website, is done as a goof simply for the heck of it by overactive minds as a practical joke. Even Ansel Adams kidded around when he was just a pup in the 1920s by selling his photos as "Parmelian Prints." I have the energy and sense of humor of a three-year old, so remember, this is a personal website, and never presented as fact. I enjoy making things up for fun, as does The Onion, and I publish them here — even on this page.".


I think that he enjoys getting all of us "techies" fired up.  Don't believe everything you read!

We all know you're a dog Eric.
Probably Michael is a dog too - he disallowed cat photographs on LuLa.
I myself am proud to be a dog. I don't care who knows it.

Woof, woof, wag, wag ....

Anti-Techies: the death to the future of photography.  Now, my intention of that statement is to point out that the future of photography is dependent on both creativity and technology.  Without either, it will die.  Both are needed.  In fact, it is possible to be both a techie and be creative at the same time.  Some of us are technically creative.

Absolutely. I don't remember reading much criticism of Ansel Adams' creativity and he was a serious analogue techie.

It came with the sainthood, Jennifer. You know, 20-20 hindsight. ARAT is the definition of creativity in some quarters; it also involves a ritual with old tripod holes, but I never quite grasped the significance of the latter. I believe that using a little artificial heating is frowned upon, too. Rules, rules; thirds, triplets and octaves even! Makes me think of Fats Domino.

Regading the death of techies or photography or whatever: reading the techie posts here, I seldom appear to see them linked with any great photography.

Now, perhaps for the record, some personal definitions might come in useful and avoid another zillion indignant posts.

With techie, I refer to pixel-wankers; you know, fairies on the head of a pin, etc. at 100% (of something or another). I do not mean active, professional people in the job who know how to use complicated equipment in their daily work. There has never been a problem with understanding one's gear; there has always been a problem with thinking that said gear has to be very complicated, be the very latest flavour of the month, be exchanged as rapidly as it's bought (just like yachts) and bear a famous name. Never realised it before: many yachties suffer the same angst as 'photographers': they can't enjoy what they are fortunate enough to have for wishing they had something bigger, newer and more expensive. Just the way I feel about cars, come to think about it... fortunately, I'm poor enough to have avoided making a fool of myself over them. Cars, I mean; the rest is not up for discussion.

Speaking of tails, it reminds me of the parable of the little fox who got his tail chopped off: he wanted all the other little foxes to get theirs chopped off too.

P.S. Also reminds that all this publicity would probably have cost Ken more than he'd want to afford!

Ken is probably at the A&E right now with sore ribs. It might be from the "kicking" he has had from this post or they are sore from laughing at all of the detractors. Wink

I can assure you that he is in no way the kind of photographer I would look up to.  I think KW could have easily come up with a better example.
Ken Wockwell?

What Wock ?


Jabberwocky
by Lewis Carroll

Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!
He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.
And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!
One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.
And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
He chortled in his joy.
Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
