DO I NEED A NEW CAMERA???
I was one of those people who believed the camera makes the photographer. You probably already know that is not the case. Oh sure, there are certain functions that only exist on certain cameras. And for the professional, it is very important to get as much camera as you possibly can afford. But if you cannot afford an expensive camera, do not be discouraged. You can do quite a bit with very little.
A few weeks ago while visiting my son’s family in Birmingham, Alabama, my wife and I along with my son left for a quick errand. Since I was sure we wouldn’t be gone long, I saw no need to take my camera. While driving around, my son decided to swing by the old Sloss Furnaces near downtown Birmingham. This place was an incredible display of decaying steel and iron architecture. As it turned out, it was an industrial photo shoot waiting to happen. But, I didn’t have my camera. Extremely disappointed but never defeated, I hauled out my IPhone and began to shoot.
After a few editing steps, this was the final result.
- Always take your camera!
- Remember, any camera can take a picture…even the one on your phone!
