#18 – You Must Have A Really Good Camera……

Grrrrrrrrrrrr, how many times have I heard this? Why do people think that cameras are the only ingredient of a good photograph?

Does a camera drive itself to an intersting location?

Does a camera know how to compose an image?

Does a camera know what depth of field to use?

Does a camera know how you want the scene in front of you lit?

Does a camera know when the right moment to press the shutter is?

NO! The photographer does! Do people say to carpenters, that’s a nice table you’ve made, you must have a really good hammer? NO! So why do people attribute good photographs to good cameras?

Rant over.

      You’ve missed the point. Maybe you could explain your reasoning behind your provocative comment?

      PS, the correct spelling is ‘genius’.
