keeping the eye on the prize
I applied to a part time job this morning. I am willing to take a part time position because that will still give me enough time to still work on my photography and music. Its a technical/assistant position and I think that I am qualified. I am good with following instructions, working with people and I have a background in tutoring. Over all I am a great candidate. However, there are people who are more technically proficient than I am. I consider myself to be a user rather than an innovator. I learn each piece of gear that I need to know and I use it. I do not have an endless supply of gear knowledge in my head. I'm not so sure thats a necessity anymore anyway. Each setup is different. Each camera is different. I was listening to TWIP over the weekend as I ate some weeds and one of the photographers (forgive, I'm forgotten which one) said that he still uses his Canon 10D because why upgrade a camera body when you would need to relearn everything and all you get is a few new features. I agree with that. I think you learn the gear you have and from there are able to help others with that setup. Well, thats one more prospect in my job quest.
