It’s best to think of cameras and lenses as a separate hobby from taking pictures. I won’t denigrate those who take an interest in photography gear because I’m one of them. I love reading about, writing about, and trying out new and old cameras and lenses. The newest NEX camera is just as interesting to me as the oldest film camera. What I try to remember is that gear is independent from picture taking. This is cliché territory, so I’m not going to waste too many words on the subject. After all, this blog is called Bryan Takes Pictures* not Bryan Fondles Cameras.
