Anyone can learn to use equipment to capture an image, just as anyone can learn to cook. But you don’t want to cook the same dishes that everyone else does. Learn to take photographs the way truly fine chefs develop their signature dishes. Train your eyes to see with your heart, listen to your subjects, and then create images that are unique. ” - Joe Buissink
—Joe Buissink made a point in his book, Wedding Photography from the Heart, about getting to know your equipment.
