Re: you gotta go to the right spots ? Nope.

One thing they do emphasis over and over is that your gear (price of your camera) is NOT one of the crucial elements of a great photo. I suppose this is to encourage those with entry-level DSLRs and the like. That's fine, but when they suggest "you gotta go to the right spots" which invariably means travel costs, the cost of gear seems to pale in comparison.

Your thoughts on this?

It's nonsense.
Great statues,  paintings,  cakes, beer, Ikebana and needlepoint are all achieved without travel.
If anything, the benefit of greater control of the variables can be a good thing.
Talent In = Talent Out, same as it ever was.
