A Reminder

A reminder from one of the greats to avoid the G.A.S.* trap...

"The fact is that relatively few photographers ever master their medium. Instead they allow the medium to master them and go on an endless squirrel cage chase from new lens to new paper to new developer to new gadget, never staying with one piece of equipment long enough to learn its full capacities, becoming lost in a maze of technical information that is of little or no use since they don't know what to do with it." 

--Edward Weston

It seems good advice never goes out of fashion. Regardless of whether we're talking about antiquated sheet film view cameras (as in Weston's case), or the latest digital wonder that hit the streets last week, gear is not the answer to our creative challenges.
