Its not just about the gear you use

Most amateur and few professional photographers think you have to have a top notch equipment to be able to take good photos.

"Saying a camera takes nice pictures is like saying a guitar plays nice melodies"

Without the skill to use the best and most expensive camera, your picture might still be worthless. Likewise, even if your camera is not top notch, you can still take the best pictures and accomplish wonderful things, as long as you know what your product is capable of.

The Dominican photographer Wilfredo GarcĂ­a, when going on photography trips with his students, and clubs, always came back with the best picture. He was known for having a huge collection of cameras, going well over a hundred.

During one of these trips, a student challenged him, saying he would obviously bring back the best photograph, as he had the fanciest cameras. He replied “So why don’t you choose a camera for me, for the next trip?”

He went with a disposable film camera, and still bought back the best picture. So, you see, its not the gear that matters, but what you are capable of doing with that particular gear.
