I was looking through some of my photographs the other day in particular the ones that had been in galleries and had sold quite well. What come to mind as I looked at them was that it didn’t matter what camera they were taken with, it was the picture that counted.
The image below is one of the best-selling images that I have taken. At the time I was using Nikon’s – a D800 and D7100, with a selection of good lenses. However this image wasn’t taken with either of those fine cameras, it was taken with a Nikon Finepix P300, an excellent compact, but a compact nevertheless.
Mrs M and I had just finished our evening meal whilst we were staying in Bardolino on Lake Garda and took a walk along the lakeside. I only had the compact with me and I saw the picture below just after the sun had slid down over the horizon and a slight haze was falling over the lake. It was a jpg file so only minimal post-processing could be done, but it didn’t need that much, just a mono conversion and some tweaking.
It just goes to show, the best camera is the one you have on you.

Great photo, and taken in one of my favourite place in the world! I can’t agree more that the camera doesn’t matter. One of my most successful photos, which has been accepted in several salons, was taken on a cheap Halina point and shoot film camera.
Thanks Stuart, I really appreciate your comments. I always look forward to seeing new images when you put them up – superb vision and technical skill.
