As usual, the so-called artists berate that which they don't understand.

Wouldn't you think what knowledge and technical skill you need might depend just a tiny bit on what types of subjects you like to shoot and the types of final images you like?

Why couldn't I get this shot with my original telephoto system consisting of a Canon AE1 with Fuji 200 ASA film and a 70-200/5.6 slow zoom lens hand held? Why did I need a full-frame digital camera, a 2000mm f7 lens and an understanding of how to get a stable 8 second exposure with it, not to mention the right equipment for that purpose?
