Myth of the easy recipe

Nobody likes a shortcut more than me. Efficiency, optimization or whatever word you care to use that describes doing more with less effort, less time or less outlay of money is music to my ears. ess

If I were to write a pithy recipe for successful photography, I’d simply say, “put someone great in front of the camera.”

Obviously, that goes a long way to getting good results. In this case, Nazneen is the perfect single ingredient needed for great results.

It seems that most recipes leave out the need for a kitchen and for the tools that a seasoned cook will have acquired over the years at great cost.

The biggest factor in the success of any recipe is the experience of the cook. Great artists, like great cooks get better over time and make the simple and the complex look effortless.
