  • I shoot because it gives me something to do while I am enjoying the outdoor experience and helps preserve the memory. I also shoot so that others who have no interest in photography will have the ...

  • I think that for #1, both are correct depending upon the experience of the photographer. I think that especially for inexperienced photographers, using a tripod can really help them slow down and ...

  • Yes, starting with your number 1, that is what I need to get back to. And wrt your other points, I think I am confusing being confused between cameras with not using them enough and mastering ...
