ERIC KIM, PETAPIXEL:
"The word 'lean' means to have no superfluous fat. And as photographers, we certainly have a lot of superfluous fat.
"We have superfluous fat when it comes to our equipment. We have too many cameras, too many lenses, too many accessories (filters, tripods, etc) and other distractions that weigh us down.
"When it comes to our images, we have too much fat around the edges of the frame. Therefore our images are too complicated, and more distractions in the background of our images."
Interesting idea, but no, I don't think this is going to work. I don't believe this is the right approach. Here, read and judge for yourself.
