June 2013 LSAT, Reading Comprehension, Q9

Crowdsourcing the June 2013 LSAT:  June 2013 LSAT Explanation Central | About this project OK, this one is basically just a Main Point question. The author's attitude was enthusiastic toward the hipsters' use of old photographic techniques. (See the fifth paragraph.) If you struggled at all with questions 8-14, odds are that you didn't quite catch the main point of the passage. Here's my summary, if you need a refresher.

A. No way. The author was positive, not negative, about the hipster photographers.

B. This could definitely be it. Reread the fifth paragraph if you need to. Sounds like "appreciation of aesthetic goals" to me.

C. This answer describes how I feel about the hipsters. But the question asked how the author feels about the hipsters. So this is out.

D. This one goes a bit too far. The author did seem enthusiastic about the hipsters' use of old technology, but I don't think the author went so far as to say that the hipsters were critiquing modern technology. That last part is simply unsupported by the passage, which makes this answer 100% wrong.

E. Whimsical? I didn't hear any "whimsy" in the author's voice. Furthermore I don't think the author's point was as broad as "the ways in which processes work." I can't pick this, when I'm already comfortable with B.

Our answer is B, because it's a straightforward and conservative description of the author's stance.

Please ask questions and/or suggest corrections to anything that seems confusing... we want to make this the best resource we can for LSAT students. We'll have all the June 2013 explanations up as quickly as possible. Thanks for reading. Tell your friends!
