Are some photographers born to become masters

I am a firm believer that we are born with a certain capability of intellect. But that we can also improve and learn beyond our natural limitations. But for some reason, I often hear the compliment “Your so lucky to have a natural talent.”, as if your DNA had something to do with all your years of hard work and practice. A comment people say so they don’t feel bad about their own accomplishments because, in their eyes, you have to be born with a talent. So are some photographers born to become masters?

Why I only use one lens

Why I only use one lens, well after many years of experience using different lenses, I now have resorted to only using a single prime lens. I started with a 50mm then added an 85mm, 35mm, 100mm and 28mm to my collection, and I’ve played around with zoom lenses. But now I exclusively use a 50mm lens. No more zooms and no more choices. But why would I volunteer to limit myself?
