Writing a book, drawing and painting are additive techniques where you start with a blank canvas and add your creation to it. Photography is mostly subtracting. You remove the clutter, and localize the subject.

I’m happy over here in the minority. I like Vanguard but prefer flip locks. Come to think of it, almost all my choices go against the masses including my Panasonic camera choice.
