Looking Into

The Brillig Challenge

 Allison and fellow blogger Brillig recently had an email exchange. The discussion centered on photography and whether or not it was possible to take a photograph of substance without a “good” camera. Allison’s position was that it was not only possible, but reasonable to believe that one could take beautiful photographs regardless of the equipment used.  Brillig then issued a challenge:

“All righty, then. I challenge you both…. to take an awesome picture with a crappy camera–and not some pic from your collection, but something new that you take THIS WEEK.” 

We rose to that challenge. You can see the results here.

  2. Depends on the photographer. Some photographers have “the eye.” If they don’t have it they can develop skills, use techniques, become good at shooting. But crappy cameras are what we all start on. Crappy cameras are our foundation, inspiring us to continue with the craft, to invest in cameras, lenses and the like. If we didn’t get anything good, we wouldn’t move on. Then again, combine “the eye” with good equipment and it’s happy time.
