I’ve rewritten the Rifleman’s Creed as follows:
This is my camera. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My camera is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My camera, without me, is useless. Without my camera, I am useless. I must fire my camera true. I must shoot better than those who do not take their time to learn. I will…
My camera and myself know that what counts in this life is not the amount of photos we take, the noise of it’s shutter, or the way it makes us look. We know that it is the best shots that count. We will observe…
My camera is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its viewfinder and its grip. I will keep my camera clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will…
Before Cartier-Bresson, I swear this creed. My camera and myself are the defenders of documentation. We are the masters of those who takes snapshots. We are the saviors of our creativity.
So be it, until art is victories and there are no bad prints, but only great captures.

My name is Soren and I'm a nerd. Besides the regular nerdy subjects like computers, electronics, old game consoles, ham radio, and what ever nerdy things that catch my eye, I'm also very interested in photography - both film and digital. On this site you will find some of my photography thoughts, equipment reviews and my own photography related projects.
