After publishing my previous post I remembered a Youtube series that I usually watch which reinforces the idea that the camera is just a tool; what really matters is who’s pressing the shutter. I’m talking about the “Pro photographer, cheap camera challenge” on DigitalRev TV’s channel.
I’m not a particular fan of this channel because I think the people behind it are quite silly, but I do love the mentioned series. I always learn something from it and none of the things I’ve learnt so far has anything to do with gear – I’ve learnt about lighting, composition, subject, perspective, self-confidence, connecting with others… All things that culminated in the biggest lesson of all:
“The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it!” – Ansel Adams
