I've been thinking about this for some time now. Several months actually.
I have all this gear and it is great, no question there. But for some reason I feel weighed down by it. Too many lenses, too heavy, too this, too that. You get the picture. I always have an excuse to just go out without my gear. Kind of weird for a photographer, don't you think?
This change in me started while we were traveling last year. When all I had was the PhaseOne with one lens and the Fuji X100 which has a fixed lens. I was travelling light in comparison with the trip to Iceland where my gear bag itself was 20kg!
As some of you can imagine, and obviously others not, I have grown fond of my gear and I am attached to it. That's why it took me so much time to make this decision final: I am selling it!
Am I quitting photography you ask? Not a chance! I am just following a trend I've seen many photographer follow and that I believe will rekindle my love for photography, the art of taking time to compose, to shoot.
