On Camera Selection & Form
A creative shooter seeks gear that compliments his style. This governs how chooses his equipment. As a person whom lives by fire of experience, it is this alone which stands as the one true test of acceptability.
The corpus of his modus is that, any gear he seeks, is to manifest his idea perfectly, that is all.
Should his gear encumber her in any way this stops an idea from manifesting correctly, and she discards it in lieu if something more refined.
Refined means that the ideas in ones mind flow like an an encumbered river back into the sea as the tides change, there is no separation.
Therefore, the ability to manifest our ideas is the test of whether the gear is suitable.
A creative shooter constantly assesses whether his idea is manifested as it appears in his minds eye. He seeks to make his own picture in the minds eye then project the through her veil of space and time into a medium which accurately manifests his pre-produced idea.
The argument of film and digital is erroneous to the creative mind as he sees only the result of his thinking being manifested correctly as it was first seen in his mind, or, an aberration of something thing which resembles, but is not quite his desired rendering.
A creative shooter thus encompasses all methods and forms in order to manifest his idea. All are treated with the same degree of equanimity and impartiality. The ultimate aesthetic is the aesthetic of mind, and he seeks to mirror this aesthetic in her outer reflection of his inner minds picture.
Arguments about form and outer imaginings are not something a creative shooter is entangled by, as he uses all forms, as is required to manifest his ideas.
Thus the maxim follows, that the form is only a reflection of the picture, as the true picture exists beyond its reflection, in the mind, the form is the outer imaginings of the still inner mind.
Thus the camera serves as the gateway to reproduce his idea onto her outer form, but the form is only a reproduction of the idea, just as a book is full of words which mirror the thinking of its author.
