Your Camera Doesn’t Matter!

Huh!? Says who? Well, says some guy named Ken Rockwell. I was poking around the internet and came across this interesting article that really puts the whole notion of agonizing over the right camera choice on its head. It’s definitely worth a read to anyone (like me) who thinks they need the latest greatest gear. Rockwell quotes Ansell Adams (one of the world’s best known photographers), “The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it.” Definitely something to think about. Anyway, if you’d like to read the article, just click the title below:

Your Camera Doesn’t Matter!

If you can shoot well, all you need is a disposable, toy camera or a camera phone to create great work. If you’re not talented, it doesn’t matter if you buy a Nikon D3X or Leica; your work will still be uninspired.

It’s always better to spend your time and money on learning art and photography, not by spending it on more cameras.

Why is it that with over 60 years of improvements in cameras, lens sharpness and film grain, resolution and dynamic range that no one has been able to equal what Ansel Adams did back in the 1940s?

Ansel didn’t even have Photoshop! How did he do it? Most attempts fall short, some are as good but different like Jack Dykinga, but no one is the same. Red more…
