Re: Is this proof of, "It's the photographer"?

For some reason, people hate admitting there is a difference between "interesting" and "technically sound". I don't know why. A 2mp P&S can be used to take an interesting photo, but it will be harder to do so than with high end gear. It's a 50/50 deal, the power of the gear is magnified by the skill of the photographer, but both matter.

I don't understand why so many people suggest all you need to do is work on skill and technique. Sure, do that, but to ignore the strengths of better gear is an often unnecessary mistake. Not everybody can afford a 1DX, and that's fine. Do the best with what you can get, but why somebody would purposely ignore more capable technology is just silly. Better gear won't guarantee good photos, but it can make things much easier for the capable photographer.
