Make it Human
The great challenge of art is not learning to use the tools of our craft, but learning to say something human with them. The second is learning to be OK with the silence until then.
— David duChemin | Make it Human

I was planning on sitting down this afternoon and writing a review of a new lens I recently purchased, and then I read this post by David duChemin. You should go read it and then come back here.  

Back? Pretty powerful right. Now you see why I didn't write the review. This post really convicted me.

The more I think about it the more I realized how true it is. Tech posts and discussions about gear are so easy to do and and so many people do it (myself included), but they are so missing the point. They are saying something, because we really have nothing to say.  

I don't think I am going to post about gear any more, at least for now. The gear really isn't important, it's what we make with it that matters. It is the stories we tell and I don't want my story to be about the camera I use. 

I think you guys deserve better than that. 

I want to tell stories that matter. I want to make the world just a tiny bit better through this little blog. I hope I am.
