I plead guilty to No 3.

Re: Unpopular Opinions From Photographic Industry Professionals

Most of those are sensible comments. Why would most sensible people without a stake in an opposing stance disagree

You could condense around 4 of them in to the quotation:

"Amateur photographers obsess over gear. Professional photographers obsess over money. Great photographers obsess over light."

The author, Robert K. Baggs dead pan portraits apparently were shot in a waxworks. They say nothing about his subjects. He's obviously not a photo journalist. Did he train as a police photographer?

Re: Unpopular Opinions From Photographic Industry Professionals

Some good points there, particularly regarding gear obsession, although I reckon most go through that at some stage before we get the bigger picture.
Ironic then, to judge by the author's web site, that he spends such a lot of time photographing some truly hideous watches.
