Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Innovation is the ability to improve upon what someone has done before you, to see change as an opportunity not a threat.
99% of how we shoot is something that has been done before and improved upon. In “sports” photography it’s about being able to capture a moment that can make you feel what it is like to be a part of the game. This actually lets me see the game from the “bunker’s” perspective. That’s awesome. It’s so MUCH better than the other 20+ of us on the sidelines, fighting for space getting the shot from the same boring perspective.
Please don’t take offense to my post, as it’s tone is not directed towards only you Mr. Storm that Blazes. I just hear so much: “this guy did this first…” on the sidelines it makes me get tired of the whole thing.
I think that your post could have been better worded… to me it seems like you’re trying to discredit someonee’s hard work and creativity as “just having an extra camera” and cybersync lying around.
