That's one of the finest posts I have seen ! I'm a bit older and in the days of my beginnings with a LF camera, I purchased some of Ansel's books (Galen's and others as well). It's not just technique that he is advocating, it's a whole philosophical approach as well. Since that time, I always carried a small frame in my pocket and exercised myself at composing and previsualizing a finished picture. The cost of film sheets had also this beneficial side effect, that one would have to think twice before triggering. It is an exercise that many digital photographers would gain from.
