Better gear = better photos?

One of my favourite blogs is that written by David DuChemin. He is a great writer and, in my humble opinion, a fantastic photographer.
At present he is in the Maasai Mara in Kenya (I’m not jealous – honest), and he has taken mirror-less cameras with him, and he says that this has made him feel…


‘ Free from the pressure I feel when lugging around my large lenses and pro-bodies.’


On a comment he posted on his facebook page he said that the more that we have to buy the new cameras and lenses the less chance we have as photographers to master our tools.
His latest blog entitled ‘Towards Mastery. Again.’ is a discussion on the perceived belief that the acquisition of newer gear will make us better photographers.


Please read it, it is an excellent thought provoking piece.
