Just a quick comment about the Gibson Contact Sheet- It's rare for me-
but isn't it great when we go out to shoot, and we know exectly what
we want. Pre-visualize, so to speak. Then we bracket etc., or not even
bracket...but our contacts, or images are all so close that we don't
really see differences. The last time that happened to me was in
Portugal with a fisherman- I was driving by, saw the man- saw the
picture... shot so many images, all the same...all just what I wanted.

For those of us who spur of the moment  "street shoot" and wear our
cameras as part of our body (something pointed out to me in high loooong ago), how great is it, to see something and
immediately allow that photo to take over our mind- and then translate
that into an image. Happens all too rarely. vroger
