Don’t be a cameraist. Be a photographer!

I’m a big fan of Paul Burwell’s Wildshots photo blog. I’m an even bigger fan of this idea: there are cameraists, and there are photographers. A cameraist, according to Paul, is somebody who can’t see the forest for the trees. These cameraists somewhere along the line became more concerned with gear than with pictures. Cameraists also may not know about great photographs, but they know about great cameras—even if they don’t really know how to use them. Basically, cameraists don’t seem to have their heads on straight. Read Paul’s blog to learn the top 10 ways you can keep from becoming a cameraist in your quest to become a better photographer.
