Al Weber (a well known photographer, teacher, and important mentor for me) once wrote:
"Never allow some tool to get between you and your work."
One reason I generally shun clubs and gatherings of photographers is that the conversation is rarely about photography - it's about their cameras. Endless babble about specifications, and features, and one up-manship about how wonderful their toys are.
The camera is a tool. As such it has strengths and weakness that influence how you approach your work. But in the end, the important thing is your work. What you create and why you create it - that is what interests me. Let's talk about that!
