The best camera


It’s been quite a while since I have posted up here, mainly because I have been absorbed into the world of Google+ where there seems to have been an explosion in the photography community. It is buzzing in there and the quality of the work is astounding, I often found myself looking at the work of other folks the way you sometimes do and asking myself, how the hell do I compete with that!?

It’s a common mistake first starting out (I made it many times) to see the work of other photographers and spend large portions of time trying to emulate them. Though it is flattering and often you learn a great deal from exploring someone else’s workflow it is important to keep your perspective through the lens. Photography is much more than just pointing a camera and taking a photo. Yes there are guidelines for composition and exposure and it definitely does help to know the effects of apature, exposure and shutter speed. There is also something else something that really speaks out and calls to the people looking at your work and it’s you.

Photography is the world through your eyes, your stories and experiences and those of the people you meet, it’s your humanity and perspective that draws in the observer and that really makes an impact. I’m often asked or hear people talking about what is the best camera and in my opinion the best camera is the camera you have.
