The act of taking pictures.
The best camera
Being a photographer with a love for big cameras with lots of facilities and flexibility, means that the best camera is not always what I have with me
I think that most of us don't come anywhere near using the potential in our cameras, and that honing skills and craft is a much better investment than buying new gear
Why you should see Blade Runner
OK, it's my own all time favorite movie, so I'm biased here, but I still think there's a lot to learn for any photographer.
Camera features I'd like to see
Here's a list of some camera features I'd love to have – all of them doable in firmware, so it's basically a free-for-all smorgasbord of ideas for camera manufacturers.
You should never shoot a wedding
Simply don't! Unless you are a wedding photographer and get paid well to do it. Or just a guest bringing a camera.
Real men don't backup
Well, let me be honest: I'm not a real man. I back up my photos and files to an OCD like extent. And you should do the same.
I stopped chimping
Yes I stopped looking frantically at the LCD on the back of my digital cameras after each and every shot. And I think it has made me take better pictures.
Film does not make you better
Shooting film is not the rite of passage to becoming a "real" photographer!
Here comes the photographer!
It's amazing what large cameras can do for you when you are out shooting. They can literally open doors and break down fences.
Exercise your photography muscles
Bring your camera, take pictures, have fun, become a better photographer,
