My goodness! What do you suppose a sheet of 16 x 20 film and the processing cost?

. Look at the perfect exposures - no digital manipulation, no dodging or burning - just spot on exposures. Also, look at the bottom of the page for more links.

Think about it a different way. They were using fixed lens cameras, and although they had more options, they probably would only have 10 or 15 combinations of shutter speed and apature that they would routinely use, especially outdoors.There was no white balance, art modes, or lenses to worry about, so really there was very little to learn. Under those conditions it doesn't take long to be able to make almost perfect exposures just by estimating. My dad used to do it all the time. After 15 years as a police photographer he hardly ever used a meter.
