Does size Matters (part2)
A few months ago, I wrote Does size Matters? .
Not surprisingly, it annoyed some big-ass-camera-lovers but there are some people who agree with me as well (judging by how some people are quoting some piece of that article on their websites/blogs)
Recently, I came across THIS ARTICLE , where the photographer, Lee Morris shot a stunning full-Fashion-Shoot using.. his iphone camera. Im not too sure how many mega-pixel an Iphone supports, but from my screen, the photos certainly look gorgeous.
Of course it helped that he had a whole team of talented people supporting him.
But the point is, the shoot was shot on an iphone! What does this prove? (Yes.. apart from iphones bring wonderful must-have phones blah blah blah)
But it also proves that Size doesn’t matter.
I particularly LOVE this quote of Lee Morris’s.
He wrote “When your clients view your work they aren’t thinking, “Wow I don’t see any chromatic aberration in this image!” They are simply thinking, “Wow, I can’t put my finger on it, but this looks great!”
I remember when I was learning how to communicate with Couples and getting them to pose, I practised on my Sister and her Boyfriend. I brought them out to shoot and during that time, I didn’t had any SLRs or semi-SLRs. I was using my 4yrs old trusty 5.2mega pixel baby-blue compact camera.
So we went around the city area, with me getting them to pose and all.
And this photographer with a super HUGE camera walked pass me, with an unhappy-looking (probably tired) couple trailing behind him.
I could NEVAR forget that look and smirk on his face as he glanced over at me and my tiny 5.2mega pixel camera, trying to pose my sister.
I could practically read his mind! “Ha! You shoot with that Junk?”
Well, I went home, processed those photos (of my sister and her boyfriend) and posted it up.
People like it. That simple. =D
Me think end of the day, it’s the process and the outcome that makes the Couple (or clients) happy and not how huge / powerful your camera is. Afterall..
“even the most expensive camera in the world is capable of taking bad pictures.

(nothing, im not using my 5.2mega pixel baby-blue compact anymore, don’t worry. I am just glad established photographers do seem to have the same mindset too) 😀
