It’s Not the Camera!
Brownie Camera ~ Dora
It is common for people to look at a beautiful fine art photograph, or any other type of outstanding image, and ask the photographer: “What kind of camera do you have?” This question suggests the idea that if you have a high-end “expensive” camera you are guaranteed to get good pictures. Nothing is so far from the truth!
A professional camera in the hands of a casual photographer does not make masterpieces automatically while a “good” photographer can take impressive shots with a simple point and shoot, an entry-level camera, or even a vintage film one like my father's Baby Brownie pictured above. There is so much more behind a fine art photograph than the paper it is printed on. The type of camera used is to a great extent irrelevant. It takes years of experience, learning, experimentation, and dedication to turn what could be a snapshot into a fine art image that is just right.
