It's not the camera, it's the man behind the camera?

Recommended Posts

The man behind that camera looks like he is having a hard time holding it up. Probably be lucky to get a couple of shots. Apart from that he looks like a clown and the guy in the background thinks it’s funny too. We can’t see exactly what he is taking a photo of. In answer to your question a good camera certainly helps. But it also helps to have some vision and technique. I think it’s a combination of all three. Certainly different cameras will perform better, for different situations.

The man behind the camera looks like a baseball player of that time, possibly a member of the old Washington Senators. I'll bet the man smiling is the photographer.

Camera or photographer?: I remember Ansel Adams quote: The most important part of the camera is the twelve inches behind the viewfinder.
