The very expensive equipment, hard won technique, theory etc should be so second nature that nothing gets between you and pure imagery. So that if you stopped to think about it, you could write a page about why you stepped to left, or stopped down. But you don't stop to think, cause that'd just slow you down. :)

To become a "Good Photographer"...
Learn to hold the camera steady, See what the light is doing, Squeeze the shutter gently.

"Have fun and enjoy what you're doing or you'll never get good at it."

That goes for more than photography.
