Mousumi.


Rarely, but sometimes, I just don't feel like writing anything and I'd rather show a photo.

Love this portrait. Wonderful tones, her eyes have it. No words necessary.

Great photo. You must have a great camera! ;)

No! No! I'm still looking for the ultimate camera. See yesterday's post.... :-)

Exactly!

I had one of those "I bet you get really good images with that camera" -moments yesterday. The person was obviously disappointed when I pointed out that I was using an almost 10 year old body (1ds2) that was still very nice.

This was the first time I've come across this situation, it felt pretty surreal...

For someone looking for the "ultimate" camera you do a pretty fair job with what you already have. It seems to me you could do an acceptable job with a $100.00 point and shoot camera. Or a pinhole camera (if you could find film to fit).
I would find it interesting if you took a $100.00 P&S on one of your weekend walkabouts and see what you could get. All in the interest of a scientific approach to the question - is it the equipment or the photographer? (I'v always thought a bit of both)

Some time, just for the fun of it, after a portrait session, you should shoot some extra shots with a disposable camera from the local gas station. Then, when you post the pictures, include a picture from the "happy birthday" camera.

Even though you have explained it more than once, I am not sure most people realize what factors contribute the most to a great portrait.

Great photographers tend to use great cameras, so it is easy for the novice to confuse the two.

Interesting case. I shot the image above with a 35mm film camera. I shot on slide film and converted it to black and white. Then I distressed the file in Snap Seed. It could have been done with ANY camera that would allow the right crop and the right focal length to be used. Image quality was way down on the list of things I was concerned with.
