The more you know (about great photography) the less pictures you take?

I've been where you are and in some respects I'm still there.

If you keep looking, you will find your voice, then start pushing the envelope so you keep developing.

I do studio portraits and holiday snaps. I know a lot about the tech stuff, but much of it I have only read about. I still play with light when shooting portraits, and my wife hates me when I try to take the time to compose holiday shots differently or wait for the passers-by to arrange themselves in a HCB picturesque way before shooting. That's the trouble with people today, they don't consider the needs of the photographer like they did when HCB was around - or maybe there's another explanation...

It all goes into the 10K hours pool and maybe when I retire I will be a master of all things photographic.
