A lot of people keep telling me that I need to get such and such camera. Well the truth is, the picture is only as good as the photographer, not the actual camera. Here’s another person who agrees. Sure, having a better camera makes it possible to get a variety of pictures that you might not have been able to get with your phone or with your point and shoot, but if you learn how to take good pictures then the camera just becomes a better tool and it’s not the camera that is taking the pictures but the photographer.

The Daily Post

I like to take pictures using my phone. Each photo I take represents a precise moment in my life — a memory, a place, an object — something that captures my imagination or inspires me in some way. While some people fuss about buying the latest cameras and the latest lenses to make the best possible photographs, I’m not one to lug a large camera around. My iPhone is always in my pocket, ready to capture these randommoments during my day and my travels, for I’ve found it’s true that the best camera in the world is the one that I have with me.

So I don’t have Photoshop, or

Nope, I don’t have Photoshop, or any other photo editing software. It’s just the basics for me, right now anyway. What you see is the picture I took. Now don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have some type of photo editing software, but at the moment spending money on that would take away from the money I’m going to be spending on photography classes, and I’d rather learn some more (about everything) before I jump into purchasing something as expensive as Photoshop. As far as I’m concerned, I need to learn to take great pictures and then I can learn the other stuff and acquire the more expensive stuff.

Besides, I would really like to get a better computer, and I’m thinking about switching to Apple products and getting a MacPro or an iMac, (would love to be able to get both), and I’m going to need an external HD, and the editing software for Mac, as well as MS Office for Mac, and a new printer, AND I’m going to need to get new camera (the professional one). The list goes on, but suffice to say, I know I’d rather wait until I know more about what I’m doing and what I like and what works best for me.

Now, I’m off to grab some coffee and take some pictures. I took this one earlier today after I took the dining room pictures off the wall and hung my “stuff” up above my desk. Our dining room has been converted into “my area.” IMG_0734
