Occasionally, I receive what might seem like a compliment to my buddies on the other side of the lens, but really actually makes me want to cry deep down instead. The oh so dreaded, as any good photographer would know, “WOW! Your camera takes such nice pictures!”
It might actually be the most hurtful thing I hear when shooting, mostly because it diminishes my talent, skills and… soul.
So, I decided no more fancy camera for things like my Instagram posts. Because really it doesn’t matter what you’re shooting with, though the camera and the lens may help, sometimes all you need is your phone, some creative vision and a walk outside to create something beautiful.
I challenge you to create, design, and inspire. Because its not the camera or the lens, it’s the eyes behind it.
