There is a Buddhist thing saying if you meet the Buddha on the path, kill him, or something like that. All that says is that if you really want to figure something out that is meaningful to your journey/process, you’ve got to search inside yourself and figure it out from the inside out, not from the guidebooks of prior “experts”.
Lately I have been lopping off the heads of photography gurus I have been following, podcasts, youtube channels and websites alike. No need to name names, they know who they are. There are no experts, just opinions, and they are a dime a dozen, especially in the photography world. I will do what I do, unfettered, and free of the noise of mantras coming from the internet.
Om on my own, baby!
