I think I might stop answering questions about what camera I'm using. A kind of aged-grain from using shit old lenses aside, the only pics it makes a difference with is the birds, the rest it's inconsequential. The constant focus on equipment instead of understanding I have a good grasp of light and composition is frustrating. Some of my best photos this year were taken with a 3yo mobile phone. It's not the camera.
@sophia "If I only get the same equipment as you I'd also take this good a set of pictures, don't gloat!"
Sigh, some people ..
@moritzheiber I keep getting accused of stealing my own photos, lmao
I guess the subtext is ' You can't be good enough to have taken these'
@sophia Yeah, it's probably a whole mixture of fragile masculinity, tech bro affection and hurt egos .. 🙄
@sophia That has always been what has impressed me about your photography, you clearly have a great grasp of light and composition. I think short of using the fabled potato camera it wouldn't matter what you use.
@sophia It truly is about having "the eye". I see that here. I definitely know the physics and the technical side more than my wife; but she has the eye. Her photos are orders of magnitude better, period.
Obviously, you've got "the eye" :)
