One of the things I’m looking forward to is getting to a point where the process recedes and the image itself is what becomes important. It’s less about the process and more about the images I’m making. I think that’s the biggest goal.
To me, that’s the essence of mastery. The process just is, and most if your effort goes towards making the best thing you can, not fiddling with process.
Puts a different spin on all the tooling churn in the computing world, I think.
