It's Not The Tool, It's the Talent

Time and time again, I get the "hey, what camera is that?" question, as if the camera brand makes my photos better. To the trained eye, you can see some differences, and to be sure, each brand has their feel and features. Yet, all to often, it's not about the tool, it's about the talent. Enter photographer Lee Morris, who did a high end fashion shoot with an iPhone 3Gs.

Gizmodo wrote about it here - A Professional Fashion Shoot With an iPhone 3GS - and it's just one more point about the importance of talent.

Exactly the lesson I needed to hear. I've been complaining about what I have and not taking pictures. Perfect!

After weeks about fretting what I don't have and not shooting what what I do have, this is the perfect post to slap me back in to reality.

The gear certainly doesn't matter if you have the right talent but this shoot was done with lots of talent and skills with all the lighting, post production, professional model, and makeup/hair styling.
