The best thing anyone ever said about one of my photographs was “That looks like shit.” — “ That (meaning my photograph) looks like shit.” I think it was something I posted on DPREVIEW or one of those other sites. Anyways, where I posted the photo is irrelevant. What is relivant is that that comment changed everything I knew about photography. You see, back then I had just gotten the bad ass, see ya later Sony Cyber Shot, Nikon D3000. Now this thing had just come out. It was one of the first consumer DSLR’s that changed the game for amateur photographers, and boy you couldn’t take a bad picture with it if you tried. That’s what I thought anyways. That’s what a lot of photographers think when it comes to talking about gear, that it matters, and the truth is, it doesn’t.
