Don't get me wrong. I love my camera! However, since it lacks many of the bells and whistles that newer cameras have, it's easy to blame my camera when I'm stuck in a rut.
However, at the same time, I know this to be true - your choice of camera and it's gear matters far less than you think it does! This week I was reminded of this yet again when an online article popped up in my newsfeed. Great timing!
If you are feeling stuck or are frustrated with your camera and think a new one or better gear will help, then I highly recommend reading "Why Your Camera Gear Doesn't Matter" from Digital Photography School. It's a great reminder that what the photographer does makes the greatest difference.
"It isn’t about the gear. It has never been about the gear and as soon as you realize that, you will be free to create and shoot in a new and exciting way."
"What does matter is that you are out there, with whatever gear you have, and are using it."
I hope you find the article as encouraging as I did.
Now to get out there and start shooting! (^.^)/
