POINT BEING, be prepared TECHNICALLY so that you can concentrate on the CREATIVE. Use the gear that is available and make sure you know the gear in and out. You cannot afford to miss any moment.
Mostly I am writing these posts as a reminder of what I have learned in an effort not to forget. I hope you will get something valuable out of them as well. My brother Ryan had a quote he loved, "A smart man learns for himself but a wise man learns from others." So my friend, be wise and learn from our mistakes and successes!
