  • What are you an expert at?

    This site is crawling with experts in various imaging programs and techniques. But what about stuff that has nothing to do with photography or visual arts at all?

    Are you an expert in anything else? For the purpose of conversation we'll define expert as "more than intermediate knowledge or experience".

    Faking it (when it comes to computer rendering that is).

      I like the term proficient better than expert. Expert implies things that can be a matter of opinion. Proficient implies an active understanding.

      Example: the manufacturer of a mechanical devise might advertise their "expert" engineers are available to trouble shoot problems. But the engineers may not be proficient at operating that devise under real-world conditions, so their expert opinions can often fall short of expectations.

        PMed you Shoku.

        I will add that I'm a very technical kind of guy for those that missed my spiel (and it's now permanently erased hopefully. lol).

          Expert===> Unknown squirt (Dad use to remind me of this all the time when I tried to brag about myself; lolol).

            I'm a "jack of all trades, master of none" type person. Which basically means if I have some creative vision, I'm willing to learn just what I need to make it happen.

            So though I've learned aspects of electronics, programming, and art/design - I'll never be the best at any of it.

              I always want to learn and never want to know. So I guess I'll never be an expert in anything...

                I'm an expert hobbyist. I was a jack of all trades desktop publisher before I retired.

                    I have worked off and on with children, and with older people who had mental and physical disability's. I am in school, finishing my medical office administration. I have always loved photography and restoring pictures...I am self taught...expert at nothing!

                      Medical mistakes?
                      by Ed_L
                      I think it was Jak's post on another thread that prompted this one. What do you think are the major causes of medical mistakes? Do you think the nursing shortage has anything to do with it, and if so, what can be done to alleviate the problem?

                      Hi all,

                      I am not new to blogging, but I am not an expert either. It looks like a simple system and I think it is a good idea to have this sort of thing on the site, it helps increase traffic.

                      Anyway, I'm not sure exactly what I am going to put here. It will probably be...

                      This is a thread over at dpreview. It concerns photography and photographers but I believe has a huge cross-over to photo manipulation. I believe it's worth a read and maybe a comment.

                      Cleaning originals
                      by thomasgeorge
                      Regarding the cleaning of photographs...do you restrict this to only the gelatin prints or do you extend this to the albumin prints as well? It was my understanding based on a study done by Paul Messier and Timothy Vitale and reported in the Journal of the American Institute for Conservation, 1994 vol....

                      What makes a great retoucher?
                      by iganatz
                      My name's Adam Sanders and I'm one of Box Studios' senior artists. Occasionally, when our name's in the press, I poke around the internet to see how people are reacting to the story and that's how I ended up on this site tonight. The opinions I'm writing tonight are my own alone and do not represent...
