My photographic approach involves slow pace and slow cameras.
I prefer fixed lenses to zooms and eschew extreme focal lengths and needlessly high ISO settings. I enjoy frontal views and strict geometry — this, possibly, a lingering result of two decades of living and working n the Netherlands long ago, marveling at the ever-present horizon and leisurely cycling along the squared-off fields and linear channeled waterways of the Dutch countryside.
When photographing people, I value the intimacy of eye-contact and mutual recognition and acknowledgement, and prefer the chest-level viewpoint and normal perspective afforded by my old square-format, twin-lens Rolleiflexes.
When it comes to architecture, I once preferred an analogue Nikon and PC lens and/or a folding field camera, a couple of fine German lenses, and a brace of roll-film backs filled with black/white, color negative, and slide (diapositive) film. Nowadays, however, I dream of someday having access to the speed, light weight, and advanced sensor of a present-day digital camera complete with a few high-quality lenses.
