I know it's not the equipment that makes great images...

It's really helpful to see photographers at this level offering glimpses behind the work that they do. Vincent Laforet, Chase Jarvis and David Hobby all seem to be leading a new charge in sharing knowledge and experience that is making the whole photography community better.
