It's often said that it takes 10,000 hours to master a craft.

I read the following quote from a David Mclain blog. I got a little sheepish.

"It’s not about the gear. For every minute you research or think about gear/technology you need to spend 100 hours actually using it. Look at the greatest photographs ever taken, almost all of them could have been shot with a 35mm or 50mm lens. I’m begging you… shut down your computer get offline and shoot more. The real world can be so much more interesting and rewarding than the virtual one anyway."

Guilty. That said, I am excited to really begin learning photography through my 35mm and 50mm lenses.
