Are you creating compelling and unique pictures?
2 months ago

In contrast, photographers who are focused on content don’t seem to really care how they make the picture—they just want to make it. For example, when it was first introduced in 1999, Jay Maisel switched from film to the 2.75 megapixel Nikon D1. The pictures Jay made with the D1 were noisy and just 7.5Mb in size, but the pictures he made with it were compelling and unique because the eye behind the camera belonged to Jay Maisel.

If you ever have the opportunity to spend some time with Jay, you will quickly realize that he knows almost nothing about the technology inside his current camera, the Nikon D3—nor does he care. He knows how to adjust the f/stops, the shutter speeds, the focus, and where to find great pictures that others miss. The rest just gets in the way of his mission to make compelling imagery. I really respect him for his singular focus on what’s inside the frame and his indifference to what’s inside the camera.
