Being a photographer for 15 plus years is an achievement in itself. Whether it is photographing a client, event, or personal inspiration I always try to take a photo every day. Now would I love to have my big camera and lenses and lighting with me 24/7? Of course! But… keeping track of that and the weight is no easy feat. So I tend to go to the camera that’s always on me 24/7, and that’s my trusty iPhone.
I know camera sensors on the iPhone can’t match a big DSLR. But it's not the equipment that makes the photographer, it’s the eye. So one thing is to keep taking photos.
If we thought that having big equipment would mean having great photos, then there would be no Ansel Adams, Dan Chung, and Alex Majoli just to name a few.
Taking the best shots means compositions, like rules of thirds, lighting, and a slight touch of digital darkroom processing… NO kids I don’t mean Instagram filters.
The best way is to capture those moments around you. Because every moment deserves a better picture and every great picture tells a better story.
