What Makes These Gear Reviews So Special?
The justification is twofold.
1. My days of obsessing over gear are (thank goodness) in the past. Thank goodness? As was I, many photographers, while cutting their teeth, become addicted, not only to their newfound creative outlet but to the plethora of gear available to help them "be a better photographer".
There's a certain amount and breed of gear that will help you shape your path along your awesome new journey. I agree. And it's easy for me to sit here and tell you not to get all caught up with the allure of all the shiny gear strewn about the pages of your B&H catalog; I too was a gear junkie. BUT, as I grew, more and more, as an artist, I became less and less interested in having the most toys on the block but rather having the most pimped out portfolio on the planet. I graciously joined the Gear Doesn't Matter camp. Don't get me wrong, I still drool over a particular piece of equipment from time to time but goal number one is CREATING NEW AND AWESOME WORK.
2. The signal to noise ratio is totally out of whack. The internet is pretty fucking awesome but let's be honest with ourselves people. . . There's a whole lotta garbage out there; redundancies.
