GoCast #16 – Is it the photographer or the gear?

In this episode, I discuss the ago old question…is it the photographer or the gear?

At almost any event someone will likely say “That’s looks like a great camera, it must take awesome pictures” and over the years people have argued that you can hand a point and shoot camera to a great photographer and they can make amazing photos with it.

Is there any truth behind these statements? Let’s dive into the issue and see what we come up with.

    I've heard this so many times — what a great picture, you must have a great camera. It's beyond idiotic, it's insulting, analogous to saying to Da Vinci, hey, what a great painting, you must have great brushes/paints/canvases, or to Beethoven, hey what a great sonata, you must have a great piano, or to Faulkner, hey what a great novel, you must have a terrific typewriter. (And no, I'm not comparing myself to any of them.)

    To me its the photographer who is most important. A bad photographer will surely click bad pictures with a great camera. There should be a balance in all the things, a good photographer can't do with a worst camera and visa-versa.
