The interviews are only as good as the effort that goes into them by the subjects. Ron put in a ton of effort to help make it 'right.' I am hopeful that as people go through the interviews that they will look to see if what we are asking is 'enough' and if there are things we are missing.

I am glad that people are enjoying the interviews! I am also thankful to see people spreading the word about them, here and other places. It helps insure that plenty of people get the option to read them.

Cheers!
James

PS For folks interested in underwater photography, we did an interview with Eric Cheng earlier in the month. It has some very interesting photographs in it.

Great Interview James!

Other than his work, I knew almost nothing about Ron - now I like him even more! Very interesting to know how much he is influenced by renaissance painters. (I am too, but I think the abstractionists of the 1950's have over come that.)

I can hardly wait for part 2! Thanks James!

I am glad that everyone is enjoying the interview...part II will be going up tomorrow. It provides several insights in to Ron's business. He is very candid - and teaches a lot about the profession. Folks interested in publishing will find it to be very informative.

You've gotta mean the book Perspective (I think is the title, but I know it's) by David Hockney (UK's greatest painter EVAR) and one of the most innovative photographers ever to pick up a camera. Everybody has seen his most famous photo-collage:

CORRECTION: It's called Secret Knowledge: Rediscovering the Lost Techniques of the Old Masters
Chris/Paul

Are you sure of the title? The reviews in Amazon.com are either five stars or zero stars. The summaires address his thesis that the maters used some sort of optics. That subject matter doesn't seem to correlate with Paul's description. One reader, an artist claoms the book wasn't worth the paper it was printed on. Please don't shoot the messenger. I'm eager to find out more about composition; that's why I looked the book up.

Part 2 was even more of "Ron in the Room" . It's always a pleasure to spend time with Ron, even if it's through another medium. :Whistle:

My metaphorical hat's off to you, James. You've very accurately managed an interview that captures not only information, but very much the feeling of being with the interviewee, a rare and unusual ability.

Hey Guys,

Just wanted to mention that the last part, section III, 'Ron in the Milieu' is up at NWP.

Thank you all for the feedback!

One of the great things about Nikon Cafe...

One thing that really struck me is that you guys all read. I know that sounds kind of silly, but no where else do you see this kind of conversation going on in any of the forums (including, sadly enough, my own).

What a cool place.
