It’s How You Shoot. Not What You Shoot With.

This video to simply show that you should not be limited by your camera. Obviously there was a lot that went into this shoot including a professional model, hair and makeup, a studio, lighting, and a retoucher.

I strongly believe that it is how you shoot more than what you shoot with that makes up a great photo.  Sure a good camera combined with a great lens can make amazing pictures.  But if you don’t know how to use your camera or your lens correctly, you might as well just use a point and shoot.  I have know many photographers with Nikon 3ds and Canon 1Ds that shoot horrible photographs.  While I have met some photographers still using entry level cameras like the Canon Rebel XTI and Nikon D40 and their pictures come out amazing.  So don’t laugh at the guy with the 5-10 year old camera because it not the camera that makes the photographer, its the photos.  Don’t judge!  – LFD
