As a podcast that promotes ourselves as helping to feed photographers GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrom), it can be a breath of fresh air to help people find ways to reduce the amount of GAS that they suffer from. But in light of our previous episode and talking about keeping things simple, the team decided to sit down and discuss ways to help reduce GAS. Through everything from looking critically at your gear to determining what you needed and wanted to do with your equipment. And how to help get this gear into other people’s hands who will use it rather than let it sit collecting dust. And how to still get that thrill of the purchase by spending money wisely, getting a new lens, flash, filter or a roll of your favourite film. Not always go with the cheap option just because you can, but you will miss out on the camera you want. The team then gets into a good set of roundtable questions about photography in general and getting started.
