Better/More gear does NOT equal better work!Lately in a few different journals, forum threads and facebook groups I've been noticing a lot of photographers talk about all of their expensive gear, and how it makes their photos so awesome, when in actuality what I see is a handful of mediocre photographers hiding behind a big expensive gear-bag instead of trying to make some actual improvement in their technical skill before buying the expensive gear. For example, I just read a photographer's journal listing at least 20 different expensive lights and modifiers that he uses, and not only does his work lack technical or artistic skill [which you can teach yourself WITHOUT slowing yourself down from buying a ton of gear that you aren't ready for], but he insults other photographers who he feels are lesser in skill than him.

Stranger LoveI am not the sunlit wing-print
splayed out on the bedroom wall.
I am not the dark mass forming
in a corner of an airless hall.
I am not the viscous vengeance
where you sink your spinning wheels.
I am not the leaky bucket
hung up on your wishing well.
You are not my soul mate missing
wandering a winter's night.
You are not the sound of angels
singing by a candle's light.
You are not the rasp of fingers
fumbling with a hasp of steel.
You are not the tattered towel
soaking up the things I feel.
I am the oblivious child,
dancing where the wildflowers are.
You are my unwitting captive
lighting up a jelly jar.
