Re: "Zooms impair creativity"... explain opinion please

So how on earth do you perceive that zooms hinder creativity?


I was strictly stating that as a personal opinion as it applies to my own photography. Everyone is an individual, and applies their visions differently. If zooms have enhanced your spontaneity and ability to get certain shots you may have otherwise missed, then great for you.

Personally I don't begrudge anyone the use of zooms, as I have several, but I rarely use them. I do believe they are a compromise, however small.

I almost always shoot aperture priority, and lean toward the fast glass for it's subject isolation and dimensional effect (portraiture). Distinct advantage to the primes.

Landscapes, of course, are different, and have other considerations.

Best to you..

Understood. You were coming from a more personal preference. Your statement though didn't make that clear for me. Your subject matter of preference, to which isolating the subject is needed,  is hindered by many zooms limit in f stop. Thanks for the clarification.
