    But what if some drugs make their photographic insights better?

    Alcohol doesn't help these days and I gave up all the other stuff before I got into photography.

    For drugs, or camera gear ?

    Yes between food, school and sports they keep one's wallet empy that's for sure....which is why most of my gear was bought second hand and ranges between 4 and 20 years old
    Scary thing is I worked out that I could have bought a brand new D4s with the money kids sport will cost me this year (that does include travelling to watch them compete mind you - which is our personal choice I guess)

    But if one buys wisely, one can still have inexpensive but quality gear that takes a good shot.
    As one lady at a rowing regatta said to me recently about my 7 year old camera & 20 year old lens "wow, your camera takes nice photos" It does indeed. I just need to be there to point it in the right direction

    Even better, set the camera to use the AF-On button for focus(which I reckon you probably already have anyhow) .. give it to her and say, "here you go, show me"

    See, it works!
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    Oh dear, we fought to get Digital Photography via Distance Education as an elective at our kids High School........I now see the error of our way

    Should've directed them down the path of Drama or Cooking
    I choose to capture my images with bodies
    I share my love using Canon & Sigma
