What camera do you use?

“That’s a great photo, what camera do you use”?

This is a question I am asked quite frequently. But it’s not about the camera and its capability.

I am sure you’ve heard all this before, but contrary to popular belief, the camera doesn’t make the image. YOU do. You don’t need to upgrade your equipment just to run with the big dogs, and top-of-the-line gear isn’t carte blanche to the photographer’s Hall of Fame.

So be proud to carry your favorite camera into the field. As long as you know what all the buttons do and have a grasp of fundamental principles, you’ve got everything you need to take an awesome photo like the wedding photograph below, taken with a Canon M3, fixed 22mm lens, point-and-shoot.

Angela & Paul have their wedding at Trinity Methodist church in Eaglescliffe

After the ceremony and all the wedding guest have left for the reception, I asked Angela & Paul if they would like to do some posed photos outside the church and I didn’t take long as they both wanted to get to the reception themselves!
