Over and Over Again

Michael Lopp, about photography and reduction:

My belief is that good photography involves the same process as good application and hardware design. You find the essence of what you are photographing, writing, or building and that means you need to be willing to strip away the unnecessary over and over again. In a world where we love to preserve our options, reduction feels limiting, but sensible reduction allows the consumers of the work to better tell their own story.

If you want your story to be about doing great things you have to remove anything that isn’t.
