Gear Tip Number 1: Schrodinger's Full Frame Mirrorless

By now, you have seen umpteenth videos of Youtubers ranting about the Nikon Z7 or the Canon EOS R full-frame mirrorless bodies. Reactions of praise and bliss alternate with heated arguments of contempt. They are both peerlessly beautiful and high performing as well as heavily flawed and poor first efforts of Pro cameras. In effect, they're Schrödinger's Full Frame Mirrorless Bodies - each exists in a state of quantum superpositions until you, yourself hold one in your hands.

Quick Content Tip 1: Embrace the NON "Standard"

I've been active in several photo discussion groups. Often gear focussed. Sometimes medium focussed. Sometimes region focussed. Sometimes theme focussed.

Unless participants are empathic, that is, they can put themselves in your shoes and see with your eyes, they often have difficulty understanding the intent of your image and cheering you on with your endeavour. They want to sit in their own comfort space, and look from their frame of reference.

Just keep faith with yourself. You sometimes need the validation of peers. Sometimes you don't. If you seek validation every time for every photo, you won't be able to contribute your uniqueness or personal flavour to the world. Even flaws are unique.
