I have been using LR for about 3 years now, but I consistently see eye-popping results from Pros, often using the same gear that I'm using (e.g. Robin Wong using an OMD), but with better results. I've been switching gear for the last couple of years, mainly to reduce size -- look for a size/IQ balance. I'm pretty happy with what I've learned and what I'm using, though I reserve the right to switch again. But, I'm beginning to feel my real issue is not in my gear, but in my post-production. I'm also beginning to believe I'm very bored with the "shoot it as I saw it" motif. Getting the colors accurate, etc. and have begun to like filters -- be it applied in camera or post. Overall, though, it seems to me that I should stop messing around with gear -- because honestly it's all really great and competent -- and learn how to better handle post. Also, explore a "look" that I could call my own, and begin applying to shooting sets. Whether it's just tone curve adjustments, or application of vignetting, etc. or maybe even different kinds of fun filters (I'm a home/hobbyist, so I just shoot for myself). Anyone else have any thoughts/input? Do you think exploring gear, at some point, loses it's appeal/efficacy, and really it's post production as to where the results are at?
