I just recently bought an EOS 5d mk II. Concise camera review: I like it. I like it a lot.
So I’ve been thinking some, recently, about that peculiar synergy between the photographer and a camera – the special mojo that makes a particular camera perfect for one photographer and an evil instrument of Satan for another.
Every once in a while, I read something that catches my attention because it sums up a meaningful insight very concisely. Usually when I read these, I think “Oh, that’s obvious. Duh.” And then I realize that it’s that sort of insight which is obvious once it’s been pointed out to you, but not before.
This morning I was reading Mike Johnston’s TOP, and read just such an insight. Mike wrote:
Cameras don’t take pictures, true; but then, people don’t take pictures either. People with cameras take pictures.
