I very often see creatives expressing how the latest and greatest in gear gets them to create their best work. But I think we very often are using new gear as a crutch… perhaps using it to get us motivated to create new work (which isn’t wrong all together). I say when you get to the crossroads of get new gear or get more invested in the gear you already have… turn towards more time invested in your old gear. It will save you loads of money, and most importantly will make you a better creative. Better in that the tool becomes a part of you. It’ll all be second nature.
Now what does this moon shot above have to do with getting to know your gear better? Eh not sure, but while you’re here please spend some time admiring this shot from a camera released in 2012.
