Scott Bourne says, “Quitcher excuses and yer belly achin’!”
I didn’t always have the best gear. I started like everyone else with a cheap camera and borrowed gear and I was able to work my way through it because I didn’t make excuses. Shoot with what you have. Stop pretending that the next big piece of gear will make the difference for you. You don’t need a crutch. You need to go shoot.
Still, I’d love a Canon 10-22mm lens, a 70-200mm f/2.8L, and maybe a 5D Mark II while I’m at it. I’d make even prettier pictures. I promise. ;-)
