In general, editing 150 Megapixel still imagery is very laborious. It’s truly painful to edit through an aerial shoot comprised of several thousand images.

I needed a simpler process, a guide, a set of basic rules that I could bend and push my creativity against. Abundance is the death of creativity, so I chose one camera, one lens, and one process. My photography gear dwindled down to this and nothing else:

Silent Sony a9 a 'Great Advantage' for Photographer at Democratic Debate

There are pros and cons to both DSLR and mirrorless cameras, but one advantage of mirrorless is making headlines after the Democratic debates this week.
