I do find I focus on things very differently when I am shooting.
I try to shoot things that are mostly missed by the masses of pictures.
Theme camps are oddly under covered.
Marc Merlin has been good in this area.
Thanks for the kind words. I'm a bit crazy so I would bike through every single street and in front of every single camp every year, although that became harder as outer rings were added.
On the upside, it's a lot of exercise and I got to meet a lot of cool camps and folks. On the downside, it takes 2.5 days for doing just that and there are of course lots of camps with not that much to shoot. Not that there wouldn't be cool people to chat with, but when it became more than 30,000 folks, that was more than you can do in the alloted time
(oh, yeah, in the later years I used my garmin GPS with a street map of BM, and could tell where I had been and not been with digital breadcrumps, something like this: http://marc.merlins.org/perso/bm/2006/Pix/playa.jpg )
As for cameras, I kept it simple: point and shoot digital, best way to get many shots on the move, and I still managed to get some decent night shots.
My best of pictures:
Not all pictures are perfect, but more than good enough for a $400-ish camera

You'll find more people are looking at your pictures than you probably realize.
You've done the most thorough job of any photographer I've seen so far.
I have no doubt you're responsible for many new people deciding to go.
