Invest in yourself as well as good equipment - Damien Lovegrove tells us why you need to invest time in yourself then go out and buy great equipment.
Here's his tip:
"Keep the following three core facts in the back of your mind when making equipment or other investment decisions:
- The photographer sees the picture
- The lens makes the image
- The camera records it
It's obvious I know, but it always amazes me to see photographers blaming their cameras for producing bad pictures. A great photographer could shoot a wedding on a Nokia phone. It's what you see that counts. If you are skilled enough to see great pictures, then invest in excellent lenses to make the images for you. Great lenses really do make a difference. If you struggle to see great pictures or you feel you are missing opportunities invest in yourself. Learn how to see the light and understand perspective."
