    To be a better photographer, you need to practise the zone system...for every shot.

    My belief is that if one aims for "creativity" it will not come.

    In my opinion, "creativity" is a result of who the person is - inside. If the person is hollow, the images will at best be hollow.

    So called "creativity" that results from a mind seeking to be different ("creative") is often hollow, and does not endure - meaning, not real creativity.

    Zaren, sorry for a slight OT.

    How shall one respond to such ************** comments?

    Before I get yet again labelled as a trouble-maker, aggressive nut?

    We are all giving inputs on how to improve our photography, and suddenly this ************ came up!

    You must understand that this bloke made some comments relating to the Zs in another thread. This is not an innocent remark, nor a remark made in ignorance.

    This is a remark made to provoke. I am happy to oblige and take up the provocation.

    But it s your thread.

    Try for a second in your life not to take up provocation. No one is really asking you to respond anyway, so why try so hard?

    hi student, no problem for the slight OT.

    i agree with you that this remark is provocative and looks like flame bait to me. i hope that these remarks can be ignored and the provocation not taken up. trying to practice #1 here.

    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    by the same token, why go all out to provoke others? we are trying to have a friendly discussion here, thx!

    Didn't I give you my input? Use the ZS to be a better photographer. I don't think that was a provocative statement, do you? Unless of course, you don't agree the ZS makes one a better photographer.

    When you provoke someone, you call others "fools", "F******d" or "p*s*d***". That my friend, is provocation.

    Thank you.

    I know you and will respect your thread. You are a tolerant person. I am not. But out of respect for you, I will ignore this for this thread.

    BTW, the reason why I delete #1 is this.

    There are of course great photographers with all kinds of personality. Some extremely patient and tolerance. But there are others who have tempers a zillion times worse than mine!

    Making great photographs is independent of the personality of the photographer. But the personality of the photographer does have an influence on the type of imagery he makes.

    Great photographers don't visit photo forums all day long screaming their lungs out in every thread to prove a point.


    May I add that in order to be a better photographer, one should talk less and shoot more? Personal opinion. Save your saliva.
