This cartoon is spot on! If you want to be good at anything you have to practice. Don't wait for a gift from God. And don't fool yourself into thinking someone else has that gift and you don't. And don't bother with "If I just buy that $8,000 camera or the Steinway Grand piano or a Maserati I'll be come a famous photographer, pianist and Formula One race car driver". Nope, it just doesn't work that way. At some point gear does make a difference, and there is such thing as talent but mostly, just like I told my music students...it's practice. If you want it you have to work for it. Now, get out there and shoot...or draw...or whatever makes your heart sing!
