As pointless as I think this is, people still want to know what gear I’m using on a day to day basis. I do understand why folks ask and I always try to answer patiently and politely. Still I desperately want to explain – if time allows – that if you want to become a better photographer and artist and you believe the answer lies in what camera brand or lenses other photographers are using, you are looking for answers in all the wrong places, my friend.
I’ll give an inspired presentation on personal vision, light, and composition to a group of photographers and all anyone wants to know afterward is “what camera I used to takes those pretty pictures.” I always oblige (with or without the requisite lecture), they thank me, smile, and walk away. They beleive I just helped them in some way. but I know I did no such thing.
So without further delay, here’s more unhelpful information, by popular request.
