Untitled

Very surprising to see, how many photographers are over-obsessed with their gear - cameras, lenses, flashes, tripods, filters, this and that … each time I think about it I remember about Henri Cartier-Bresson, who is known to shoot with one camera and one lens (OK, sometimes he used 35mm for landscapes - but that’s it, really!) - and look what had he done!


I understand, to achieve magazine quality, to shoot sport events, to produce a double-page spread in National Geographic - probably, you need very decent lens and camera, but having 50 kg of photo gear, three 1Ds bodies and lots of lens’ with a red stripe on it - it won’t make masterpieces out of your photos anyway, will it?
