No SLR, No Problem
Here are some pictures I took while down in the French countryside, using my unassuming Blackberry phone camera.
As a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera user, I often find myself surprised at what one can still do with a phone camera. I have even seen brilliant short films shot with such devices. What is great about these tools is that, with their limited specs, you are challenged to be creative and resourceful, teaching you to take advantage of what is out there (natural lighting for instance). These pictures also remind me of one I took a few years ago using my Motorola Razr phone. After all these years, a photograph taken with a mere 2-megapixel camera remains one of the works I am most proud of.
I wonder what Nikon has to say about this in light of their recent social media faux pas?
While I do not claim to be a great photographer, I take offense at any declaration that one can only be considered good because of his camera. While I agree that a good tool is essential, you usually do not congratulate a surgical knife for a successful medical operation.
