Alex Furman writes about why everyone can and should practice photography:

“Photography, mostly, is not about technique. It requires technique, but technique is also the easy part and it; alone, won’t get you anywhere.”

I’ve spent the last month devouring technique-related photography books for a new book I’m writing. There’s really nothing new under the sun. If your focus is technique, you can pick up a book from 1960 or read any one of several hundred interchangeable photography blogs. Nothing really changes, but the amount of automation between you and an idea. Work on the ideas.
