Jaren & I hear this countless times. For some strange reason, people have this idiotic misconception that the photographer is just using a magical camera that seemingly does the work for him or her. Newsflash. Its usually the complete opposite if I handed you a Canon 7D right now you would almost instantly say, “I don’t know how to use this.” This isn’t to say that we’re master photographers by any means we’re just asking that you respect the craft. I found this video on Jeremy Biggers personal blog. He’s personally one of my favorite photographers. The video shows that no matter what the tool, a good photographer will ALWAYS make quality work. I personally don’t even consider myself that good of a photographer, however I’ve seen Jaren get behind a lens and produce amazing shots. It is unarguable that a good camera and great equipment will produce better results, but that’s not to say that if you don’t have both of those you’re completely out of luck. Go out there and try something different. Don’t use the fact that you may of may not have a good camera as an excuse. Practice truly does make perfect.
