Being Reflective

by wondrousdavid


In my old age (I recently celebrated my 24th Birthday) I have become slightly reflective. Apologies in advance.

“I need a new better camera.” or “I need updated software”

How many times do I hear this? Instead of wanting what we don’t yet have, why not play with what we do. Robert Frank did not have a 2014 DSLR yet still managed to photograph The Americans. Thelma Schoonmaker didn’t have FCPX yet still edited Raging Bull. Lets stick with what we know. Understand how to work it, improve with it. Fuck up with it, and eventually watch it die of overuse. Then we can have new things, perhaps creating something worthwhile with the old one.
