What it Takes

Regularly I stumble upon photography evangelists repeating over and over again a false mantra, saying that equipment doesn’t matter. I’m sure that it really doesn’t matter what type of gear you are using, but in a way it is similar as saying that money doesn’t matter … As long as you have it.


It is reasonable to expect, from skilled masters of the craft, ability to easily compensate for potential inadequacies of equipment. On the flip side, some mediocre shooters might be propelled a step forward by the payed for artificial intelligence of their latest toy. To easily understand relationship between the craftsman and his tools, we can simply visualize this as a combination of a vehicle and a driver—one can be better than the other.
