“Gear is good. Vision is better.” – David duChemin
The other day I borrowed my husband’s iPhone 4S, so that I could listen to a live streaming of a photography class while going for a run at the same time. Ironically, I hardly listened to the class as I kept stopping to take pictures of the sun setting in the distance. It made me remember these inspirational words above by Chase Jarvis & David duChemin. I think it’s so easy to get caught up in the idea that you need the best equipment to take great photos. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have great equipment, but on my own photographic journey, I have learned that what moves you to take the photo in the first place matters so much more.
Plus, I can’t believe the quality of photos taken from phones nowadays! I still remember my old nokia phone back in the day and thinking it was the coolest thing ever. If you’ve had the privilege of capturing an awesome moment with your phone, please share it here — I’d love to see it!
