Re: How to be a better photographer

Enjoyed reading Jay Dickman's view on things, would like to read or listen to the extended version.
He's spot on about equipment, and I get the point about melding into the environment. Also spot on about 99.99% of images on the web being snapshots. Flickr is littered with them.

Re: How to be a better photographer

I tend to think format is more important than equipment. There are things you can achieve with Medium Format (and I'm not thinking in terms of image quality) that can't be done with full frame. Same goes for full frame to four thirds. I always found the Nikon/Canon arguments, on DPReview, quite amusing (though the angst is sometimes delicious). If the sensor in the Canon cameras is so crap, how come there are many talented photographers making stunning images, using a Canon as the starting point? I'm sure there's still people out there producing great stuff with the E-3 and E-5 bodies.
