Moving forward in photography comes in many forms. One of the hardest is letting go of what is not needed anymore. We spend a lot of time collecting photographs, expanding our digital libraries, coming up with more and more stories. The gear locker tends to expand as we make those photographs but the locker has a hard time of being reduced as time goes on. It is important that we keep it cleaned out.
Camera gear represents an investment and if that investment isn’t producing anything anymore then it’s best to get rid of it. It can be hard to let go because it’s cool having that gear locker! You look around the office and you see all the tech and it’s awesome. I’ve been there. But in the end it’s just stuff. If it isn’t helping you then it’s best to find something that does.
