Vincent Laforet's talk last night at APA-LA was quite interesting. It's always nice to hear the stories behind shots first hand.
I thought I'd share something he spoke about last night that honestly, left a bad taste in my mouth. He said that with the advent of HD video capabilities, he couldn't see anyone in the future who shoots for newspapers shooting still images. It just doesn't make sense when you are there to cover an event and need to get the shot and you can now shoot HD video that allows you to pull any frame at 72 dpi and 2000 pixels wide, which is plenty of quality for online or newsprint. The exception, he said, would be sports photographers.
