The Future of Photography as predicted in 1944

The future, as seen from 1941. They would certainly be surprised at the rate of change today, but one thing remains constant: technique and eye. If you can’t see a shot and be creative then you’re not going to make interesting images.

I bet there were a good few people telling them to pull their heads back in, that they had an over-inflated sense of self-importance and that photography may never amount to anything more than a hobby. Just like bloggers, really.

Some great foresight there, though.

Love your blog, by the way. Full of great links and ideas. Your stuff is spurring me to go and do more with my camera than ever before, much to the chagrin of my girlfriend.
