The subject of this issue's column is Vision vs. Technology.
I love all the new gadgets and functionality that the camera manufacturers are cranking out these days, and I'm usually the first in line to play with new stuff. But what I try to highlight here is that it's still the basics...vision, creativity, interpretation...that produce great images.
To paraphrase a pithy bit of wisdom I heard from another photographer: "99% of all equipment is better than 98% of all photographers." So my point is, concentrate on getting into the 2%, instead of obsessing over the 99%.
