Like anyone who’s maniacally certain of their take on a particular issue, I’m always searching for words, opinions and actions that support my position.  So, for the latest dose of confirmation bias, I present a quote from Beat Generation author Jack Kerouac’s 1958 novel, The Dharma Bums.

            “One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.”

            I’ll leave it to you to decide how this applies to cinematography.  If you encounter resistance, I refer you to any number of previous posts that rail against the undue complexity of the technology we so often deal with in our trade.

            I’ve seen some of Kerouac’s snapshot photography, and though he didn’t seem to have a great eye, I think he’d be on my side!
