Riley Wedding

WOW… thanks Scott Bourne for making my day…

He reminded me how photographers (myself included) can very easily get into the technology race of what camera, lens, accessory to buy / use and we will stare with envious eyes at those who have bigger, better, newer equipment.

Well I have seen some amazing photos taken with surprisingly low spec cameras… which proves the point that you don’t always need the latest and greatest to make the best photo… think about Chase Jarvis and his Best Camera book where he shows some amazing photos taken with an iPhone!

I even think back to (not so long ago) when I did not even own a DLSR and had to cover a wedding using a point and shoot. I must admit that I loved that point and shoot and new all of its features and its flaws… and how to use them or work around them… and I got some great photos!!

Maybe that is our problem, we are so caught up in the “what’s good on paper” that we forget that to get things to look good on photographic paper we need to read our manuals, understand our camera’s and think before we (point-and) shoot!
