Photography is not like painting. There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative…Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever. Henri Cartier-Bresson

Craft, not Tools

Technology is the ultimate equalizer.

Yet, at least until they can teach a camera or piece of software what type of move is best, the cadence of a scene, or type of direction that is given to an actor… that knowledge will become more and more important as the technical barriers continue to disappear.

And that’s why any artist / filmmaker going forward should focus less and less on technical specs, and more and more on craft.via Vincent Laforet.
