>>3426978>People just want to talk gear... I don't really get it.
What exactly don't you get here? The "cool kids" west coast American large format circlejerk on Instagram does exactly the same thing you complain about, and you expect casuals and normies, most likely approaching film for the first time, to act differently? Yes you don't really talk much about gear and I honestly like you, you always seemed that type of guy who knows a shitload of stuff, learns on his own, yields impressive results and just keep his mouth shut, so I was a bit surprised with that ama thing on IG. But back to the point, your friend Strickland is a first class gearfaggot, always pointing out what gear was involved, constantly reminding people that his shit was drumscanned on his tango. The guy has two fucking drum scanners and even went full adv on petapixel. Ben horne, the guy with all the top notch gadgets, telling us right now about his fucking SUV and all the stuff he carries around. How about the whole "shot on velvia 50 with gnd and shit"? Like who the hell cares. The film type is still gear, only gearfags will care, a customer probably doesn't even know what velvia is.
And this "adventure influencer" mocking thing you guys are parroting about these days? Yea, Instagram influencers are shit, we get it, but what exactly do you guys think you are doing on instagram and YouTube? Pretending to be some new Ansel Adams in Zion for the Nth time? Jesus Christ that place became some obnoxious playground, every photo is fucking the same.
So yea, let's be real and let's get off the pedestal, shall we?
