I confess I love to buy, borrow, or plain try new cameras. I admit I lay hands on a lot of different cams over the course of a year. And it’s great fun. Nonetheless, it just tickles the geek in me. My photographer self knows all too well the worth of the images I make has very little to do with the camera I used (hence the title of this blog. I’m not just being cute; I mean it !!).
The light. It’s the darn light. Photography literally means “painting with light”. No light, no photo. Plain and simple. Then, superior sensors and lenses are specifically designed to enhance light gathering and use. That’s where and how a better camera can help you make better pictures, because it handles light better.
I love spring light. It’s fresh, tender, and sometimes etheral. It feathers and kisses your subjects, and flares beautifully when you shoot in the sun.
I’m not pretending I’m immune to camera lust, either. Even though I’ve been doing pretty well lately, and extremely happy and content with my two NEX bodies (6 and 7). However, I just found a too-good-to-pass deal on a pre-owned Pentax Q with 8.5mm prime (equivalent 47mm in full 24×36). If it’s not good enough for me, it can always act as a serious toy for Marla.
