Your Camera Does Not Matter, 2005

The camera's only job is to get out of the way of making photographs. - Ken Rockwell
You need to learn to see and compose. The more time you waste worrying about your equipment the less time you'll have to put into creating great images. Worry about your images, not your equipment. - Ken Rockwell
Your Camera Does Not Matter, 2005
Your equipment DOES NOT affect the quality of your image. The less time and effort you spend worrying about your equipment the more time and effort you can spend creating great images. The right equipment just makes it easier, faster or more convenient for you to get the results you need. - Ken Rockwell
