Resonance is, as we all know, oscillation at certain frequencies. If your equipment is resonating you will get blurry photos............

Resonance. You look, see, feel and create an image within yourself, the equipment, well its job is to not get in the way of that.

Can 2 dimensional images resonate? My Oxford dictonary also has resounding and strong as meanings. Mind you it is the pocket version and I am only a photographer.

How much does a Penny Black 3rd addition sell for these days?

Nice girl Penny Black. Never liked her sister Cilla though.

Equipment is equipment and nothng more. It has no part in creativity of the mind nor will it aid or hinder 'resonance' but any fool knows that, of course.

Surely you did not expect one single person to claim that equipment comes first?

Seems to me that's a rather unnecessary question, but then my brain isn't firing on all cylinders today. I know, I know...no change there... Sad

Hey last nights posts were all rather weird but hopefully this thread wasn't offensive as some of the others I wrote.

I have been a photographer for 20 years and I kind of find it funny that the photography forums and members spend so much effort discussing the latest equipment.

This is probably because the digital photography age is still at an embryonic stage and each new generation of cameras offer so much more clarity etc.

My favourite camera is 15 years old though, it makes an opening to let light into itself. If that light then passes through a nice lens so much the better.

Why I visit photographic forums after a night on the tiles I will never know. Doing it again.

You're a relative newcomer to photography compared with some on this site! Wink

I would say that EPZ does not discuss equipment anywhere near as much as other photography sites (ever tried DPReview?!)

We all differ, often radically, in our approaches to photography and likes and dislikes. What one person likes another may detest and vice versa. It can be a futile conversation.. there is usually no "right" answer.

The one thing we have in common is the need for equipment. Why is perhaps why this is discussed quite a lot. But not excessively on here, in my view.

My favourite camera is 5 months old and it works that way too.

Equipment is posibly discussed more as it is easier to quantify than artistry. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but equipment can be measured.

It was the same 20 years ago, though not online of course. I guess people tended to do it in solitude, with a glossy magazine to excite themselves.

I recall 15 years ago being in a bird hide watching birds, and having a boring nerd lecture me about why my bins were no good, and why my choice of camera was no good.

Damien Hirst's art was well and truly measured today at more than 70 million for a pile of poop!
