In ancient Aztec culture, there was a legend of a man who would descend to Earth and command all the light on land and in the heavens – and he would one day lead them to victory against all enemies.
Well, half of this legend came true. [The Aztecs are dead, dude] And that man, that legend is Ken Rockwell.
Ken Rockwell is the Chuck Norris of Photography – a total BOSS that doesn’t afraid of ANYTHING, including bears, who teaches us important photography lessons and provides us all with the fastest path to supreme awesomeness. This includes:
Sometimes mommy and daddy will watch movies and read books about other mommies and daddies doing this; these are called “adult” items since they are too gross for others to want to watch. -Ken Rockwell
He is the recipient of multiple national, international and intergalactic awards and recognitions for photography, philosophy and humanitarianism. You aren’t good enough to look at his images. Seriously. Look away right now.

It killed three people.]
Ken Rockwell invented film. Film is the REAL RAW. He invented Velvia for himself and Kodak Gold 400 for everyone else. Today, he uses Velvia ISO 4 1/2. He also invented JPEG files for digital photography. This file format was designed for REAL MEN who use Nikon D40 and make house-sized prints. RAW was invented by “software companies” to be used by weenies who have not yet learned how to expose properly or shoot Leica BOSS.
Shoot REAL RAW or JPG like a MAN, and you always can see your pictures without even needing a computer.* -Rockwell 3:16
*This quote is often misunderstood. Ken Rockwell does not, in fact, need a computer to read JPG files, nor does he need a camera to produce one.
