Photography–It’s Not ALL About the Camera

“What kind of camera do you use?”

That’s something I hear often.  Honestly, I have a Canon Rebel because they were cheaper than a Nikon and, I like the thought of having a Rebel.  Remember back in the day, when Andre Agassi promoted Rebels?  No?  I’m old. 

I was having a conversation with Ryan, my Clinical Instructor and we both take photos and both said that “What camera do you use?” is a very common question.  We both have similar cameras (they aren’t 300mpix, we didn’t pay an arm and a leg and a few toes off the other foot) and we agreed, the best camera is the one you have with you. 

Untitled - 233

 

Taken with a disposable camera, and scanned a few years ago.  Not sure how it came out so well, but it did. 

sky-002

I had this really small, really cool digital camera.  It was a big megapixal.  ONE!  This is the sunset behind the old fire station in Grand Isle, where I lived for 10  years.  I love the sky and the sun and silhouettes. 

lake - 001

I think this was the 1st “good” picture I ever took.  With a cheap 110 camera.  This was scanned years ago.  I was driving my mom’s old “bomb” a Delta 88 along the lake road, pulled over and snapped the shot.  I only developed it months later. 

dutch-14

Dutch.  Jules took this picture with a point and shoot film camera.  Printed and scanned. 

Does that mean I have an eye for taking pictures?  I guess it does.  Does it mean I’m a better photographer than Joe Blow down the street?  Nope.  I just take “good” pictures.  I enjoy snapping pictures.  It’s fun.  If it ever feels like a job, well, then I’ll stop.  I’ve taken some stellar pictures with my cell phone because that’s the camera I had on me.  So over my time “away” from home I’m going to post some of my favorite pictures.  Some are good because they are just good, some are faves because of the story behind them.
