When Less is More – And When It’s Not (Quote)

Knowing when less is more – and when it is not – is more important for consistent success in participatory outdoor photography than in traditional journalistic or documentary coverage. When an artist is actively involved in an interpretive experience, whether it be climbing Everest or walking through a field, too much equipment interrupts the flow of emotional response that is the human element communicated in the best nature photography. Yes, little things do mean a lot.
