Then let me replace my suggestion with this one: "Supreme Egotistical Master of Whatever I Think I'm Good At."   Wink

Dunno - seriously, the whole "Master Of..." thing seems a bit presumptuous and self-opinionated to me anyway.
Maybe, but at least it's restricted to "Light". "Master of the Entire Spectrum of Electromagnetic Radiation" would be slightly presumptuous.

I dunno, I aspire to more like "Perpetual Neophyte."  Not so much in the technical sense, but in having the same feeling of wonder I had watching the image swim into view on the first print I ever developed in the red light of the darkroom.

Funny that, about red lights in darkrooms: unless you were doing stacks of line film it makes no sense at all. It used to be much brighter yellowish/green things: OB or, a bit later, O-something else I can't remember. At the right distance, you fogged nothing, even in a pro darkroom where there were several of those lights, one above each work station, with batch-processing going on which meant paper exposed to several safelights for far longer than the norm.

Oh well, red sounds romantic, or why else would more or less all movie renditions of darkroom prints coming up be in glorious, difficult red? Guess not many Hollwood folks heard of the Purkinje Shift connected with red light.

Yeah, this was then British East Africa circa 1963 so it was sort of old school.  Amber safelights were a revelation when I go back to the States.
