Misconception #2: Shooting deep depth of field is boring.
Wow, I could not have been further off base with this one. It is so satisfying to shoot more images between F/5.6-11. It sounds silly, but I never desired to shoot more profound depth-of-field pictures for much of my work, largely due partly to the work I was surrounded by on Instagram. I started my career in wedding photography, and the look and versatility of wide apertures were a massive part of my workflow. I still love the shallow depth of field, and I love that my Canon R5 is more intelligent than me because it hits focus on a subject's eye at F/1.2 every time.
However, the daily use of a rangefinder is rewiring my creative thinking. It compels me to expand my perspectives beyond a shallow depth of field, as that was never its primary intended purpose. Whenever I pick up my M6, my creative mindset shifts as I actively seek images I wouldn't typically capture with my other cameras.
