Your camera is better than Ansel's

Every famous photograph was made with a camera less advanced than the one you are using now. This is a quote Ted Forbes read a few months ago that's stuck with him for quite some time. Ansel Adams didn't have gear as advanced as what we have now. Neither did Henri Cartier-Bresson or W Eugene Smith or Saul Leiter. Photographers tend to put equipment on a pedestal. We blame our shortcomings as photographers on the gear that we have. Sony, Nikon and Canon all market to us in that way - you need the latest and the greatest because your photography depends on it!



The truth is that important work… work that matters - doesn't have anything to do with the technology we have access to. It has everything to do with what we have to say and communicate visually. Photography is an act of speaking.
