    A wise man once said. the journey towards a thousand good photographs with your DSLR always begins with taking off your lens cap.

    New Canon DSLRs are all having a 100% transmission, crystal clear, water-proof, UV and variable neutral density lens caps now.

    but seriously

    there are two right ways

    for commercial, pro, shoot-for-a-living type
    the right way is the way which generates most revenue for quality of life (ok, some people argue on artistic merit, but end of the day, creative people will have to fill their stomachs and it is clients who pay creative people)

    for hobbyist, the only right way is the way which satisfaction is maximized.
    it could even be an irrational way like burst shooting a 7D on max FPS...simple because the camera can. happy can already...right...

    Didnt really read his writes, but looks like a rant from someone quite free with time.

    Saw his pictures and don't like. Shrugs. Next.

    No 3 is the simple pleasure and liberty of the viewer to like or to dislike the pictures for no obvious reason and without any elaborate explanation. In this triangle all images bounce around.

    Some things start with taking the caps off... some start by putting it on...
