With the advent of the internet, pretty much any information is accessible. Don’t ever say you can’t learn something, because you probably can. Most, if not, all of the things I have learned about photography, I have learned from the internet and various books. If you want to learn something, you just have to keep looking. Even the most obscure topics have a wealth of knowledge that accompanies them. Shopping can all be done online, I can order something on amazon and have it delivered to my house the next day if I want.
In today’s technologically advanced society, I would rather do a Google search with a question I have and get a response in .04 seconds than ask the haggard fellow across the way in the sub shop what he thinks.
Just food for thought I suppose.
