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.
