Hello

I have not visited this form for some time, but have immediately noticed the absence of Brian Lord-Lord V.
He was a constant presence here, but his last post was 4 months ago.

Hello

No replies, but it seems that his name is Brian Valentine and it looks like he has decided not to post on this forum anymore. He seems to be alive and well on Flickr.

There was a post regarding the fact that the forum had become more of a forum for ID photos than creative photos. Brian felt that his images fell into the category of ID photos, so, he has ceased posting photos on the forum. That is as simply as I can put it.

I think that is misrepresenting Brian. As I understand it, it was the implication, that he objected to.

Hello

Thanks for the replies, which only leaves me even more puzzled and intrigued.
What does the term 'category of ID' photos mean?
I have not managed to see his post. He certainly was a most prolific photographer.

There is, and cannot be, an all-embracing definition. Certainly, the the images, recently posted, of a butterfly collection would qualify, at least for individual shots. The term 'record shot' comes to mind'. While for some purposes, both are valid types of image, the terms are often used in a derogatory context by those looking for something more 'creative', whatever that means.

There is a tension, too, in the world of macro photography, between those who work entirely in a 'studio', usually with non-living subjects, where they have control over just about all relevant factors, and can take their time, re-shoot, etc, use deep stacks, and so on, and those of us who shoot almost entirely out of doors, often with very active and unpredictable subjects, weather, etc.

Hello

Thanks for the clue. Very interesting discussion. It can be the problem with all forums and when it come down to it, the eternal question of working out if photography is an 'ART' or a 'CRAFT'. After over 40 years of doing all kinds of photography, I can honestly say that even now I feel that I have not taken one photograh that trancends CRAFT and becomes ART. I am not even sure that I have taken a 'good' photograph, but would really like to some day.
