The best equipment is not always needed

posted on 25th of january, 2014

I have just had my first image reach level four. The surprising thing about this is that is was not taken on a DSLR. It was taken on an old Minolta digital camera, when digital was still quite new and I was trying it out. There is a lot of talk about equipment needed, but I believe the composition is the main thing. I wouldn't change my current DSLR set up, but it is possible to get good results with lesser equipment.

So right!
1. Creativity
2. Using the "sweet point" of the gear
And of course - always bring a camera of any kind...

Yes, luck is needed, to be in the right place and the right time, with a camera.
I agree that digital cameras have improved a lot from the beginning, which definitely makes it easier to get the photo, when you are lucky.

About me

I have been interested in photography since I got my first Canon SLR, too many years ago to think about. I enjoy working with Dreamstime and always feel honoured when someone chooses to purchase my work. I would love to know what my pictures are being used for.
