It's the photographer not the camera

It's all about the kit, right, ask any group of photographers. Well I came across this by accident and was amazed at what I saw, take a look I dare you.


It impressed me.

Re: It's the photographer not the camera

Photos looks nice, but this guy is a very good in photo editing.
When you are very good in editing, camera does not matter so much.
You can clone objects, blur backgrounds, mix photos, change colours....etc.

This is not photography, is photo editing&manipulation.

Re: It's the photographer not the camera

He sure has nice work on his site there Tom. Nothing wrong with however a photographer wants to portray his or her images - there's no deceit or misleading here, they are all super pics.

In my opinion - it's about a triumvirate comprising;

1 - the kit used to capture the shot - kit does matter, in a certain proportion. You can usually get better quality images with better quality kit.
2 - the subject matter - one always needs good subject matter for a good photograph.
3 - the processing applied to the image.

... all considered and used in creating the shot, and subsequently brought together in whatever proportions by the photographer.
