Just An Important Reminder...

Hey All

Just a reminder - of which I was reminded today!

Cameras don't take pictures, people do. I shot one of these pictures today with my G10, the other a year or so ago with my 1Ds Mark III.

Both look pretty good to me.

Message: Compose carefully, see the light, watch the background, get the best in-camera exposure.

:-)

Keep shooting.

Best,
Rick
P.S. My next book (no kidding): Confessions of a Compact Camera shooter.

my G9 is a big part of my pix these days. Right place at the right time!

Yes to timing.

I think a book on compact camera shooting is great! I've been in way to many arguements about my camera is bigger then your camera. I shot an awarding winning photo with a P&S. Granted I don't usually use a P&S but a camera is a tool if you under stand the limitations of that tool your using and stay with in it's limits you can make masterpieces with it. Just saying...

So true - i started off with a point & shoot from sony... and took some of my best pics with it. To this day, I realize that a camera's limitations can only be overcome by the skill of the photographer. You have to see the light.

My G10 is with me most of time because you just never know when something will come along!!!

The best camera is the one that is with you at the right place at the right time and yes, Rick is right "Cameras don't take pictures, people do."
Any book from you should be good :).
