I just came upon Daniel Milnor's blog for the first time. Brilliant, sharp perspective on the photographic process from someone who knows who he is and who he is not, and is completely at ease with himself and his old school, film based methodology. This, from his latest, long post on the photographic process:
"In a nutshell, if you are thinking about your gear, you are failing. Period, end of story. I see so many young photographers completely at the mercy of their hyper-complex dslr. And then subsequently, at the mercy of their hyper-complex software. I actually feel kinda sorry. And now we are adding sound and motion. This is why most of what I see from the new media looks like one person doing three things at once. That is such an unfair burden to have to work under. I’ve used the same cameras for so long I don’t have to think about anything but what is front of me. This is a very liberating feeling."
