A qoute from pro photograper Steven Vigar:
MSW: What advice you would give to aspiring photographers?
SV: Play play play. A lot of photographers seem to be obsessed with their equipment. Of course itís important to have the right equipment for the job, but I donít really care for deep conversations about Nikon versus Canon, the benefits of full-frame cameras, etc. Do you think that during Picasso and Matisseís legendary art conversations they discussed their favorite paintbrushes? Many people are shy to get to the point and discuss mood and depth of the photos, to discuss the real issues associated with capturing the world around us.
and i agree.
