Sick Hank gives us a little look into what it used to be like being a photographer. Long hours over the light table. Lots of driving to and from the photo developer’s place… tweaking of cyan, magenta, etc… it was truly an art back then. Not just anyone could walk up with a GoPro or an iPhone and snap a great surf shot. Back then you truly needed a lot of time to get the shot… every roll of Fuji Velvia gave a photog 36 chances of getting lucky, and if the wave of the day came on the 37th frame you were SOL. Back in these days, lots of slides went into an actual trashcan rather than into an icon on your computer screen, and a lot of them were filed away in three ring binders never to be seen again…. For the slides who were picked, for the lucky few that made their way to the light table, their life would take a fantastic turn straight to print media! They’d be sprawled out on the light table, picked, chosen, then taken to another room where they’d get the white cardboard border ripped right off them, exposing them in all their natural glory… next stop was publication and that’s what it was all about until they got slide scanners hooked up with computers and digital cameras that actually worked…. But it’s not the same….
