Why at first, you should buy a “test” DSLR?

It seems counter-intuitive:

  • Why buy, in the beginning, only a test DSLR? Why not start with the “real thing” (good body, good lens, blitz etc.)?

The answer is simple:

  • By the time you will learn how to decently used all the above (body + lens + lights), you will have wasted a lot of time on a good machine. It actually costs you to have a performing DSLR and not use it at its real value.

Two kinds of feed-back and their importance

I think there are two kinds of feed-back:

  • Emotional feed-back – “You did this, my reaction to this is this emotion”.
  • Logical feed-back – “This can be improved like this & like that”.

Feed-back is hugely important:

  • See an animation movie and see how characters react one to the other. In my opinion, the essence of how a movie will be perceived is given by the way the feed-back is given (and, in emotions, exaggeration counts).
  • If you want to get better, you need logical feed-back. That’s why I do audits.

I think feed-back is very important to the society as a whole. In order to grow, you need feed-back.
