Your camera is just a tool for the job


This is a quick post to act as a bit of a reminder that you shouldn’t get too caught up in which equipment is the best.

The term ‘best’ is a very subjective one, especially when you think of the vast array of subject matter that photography encompasses.

For instance, I still get a lot of messages asking which camera would be best. Aside from the fact that I don’t know everything about every camera on the market, before I can even get close to making a suggestion, I need to understand what type of photography you will be doing. Even then I am unlikely to be able to give a specific recommendation, but I might be able to point you in a better direction.

A wildlife photographer would probably need a totally different camera than someone who specialises in food photography based in a studio. An underwater photographer will need to different camera to someone who takes landscape photos.

More importantly though, a beginner would need a totally different camera to an experienced professional.

So, before asking what type of camera is best, have a think about what type of photography you want to do and your budget. I can’t promise I’ll be able to give you an answer, but by asking those questions you’ll be able to get a much better idea by searching for the more specific needs you have.

Ultimately, any camera is better than no camera, and the camera you have with you is much much better than the camera in your cupboard at home.
