This is the “season of giving”. Family is asking “what do you want for Christmas?” You’re trying to figure out what to give to your loved ones. Regardless of what you celebrate this time of year, for most of us, it is a time of gift giving.
If you love photography or have a loved-one who loves photography, you might put various camera gear on the giving list. Maybe a new camera, new lenses, a tripod, a flash, etc.
Many folks think that if they “just get that new camera, their photos are going to turn out so much nicer”. While that is sometimes true, the real key to better photographs is how you USE your camera. That matters way more than what specific camera you are using. Look at it this way, simply buying better pots and pans won’t necessarily make you a better cook. 😉 What matters is how you use them!
Ansel Adams said it this way:
“The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it!”
The key to great photographs has more to do with the photographer behind the camera rather than the camera itself. Want better photographs? Become a better photographer!
Our photographs are so very important to us. They capture priceless memories. They help us remember special moments with loved ones. They tell the stories of our various travels and vacations.
I encourage you to consider taking one of my photography workshops, or GIVING one of my workshops as a GIFT this holiday season to that photographer in your life. All of my classes and private teaching options can be given as gifts!
