It's Not Always the Camera...

Many photographers tend to constantly upgrade their equipment to the latest and greatest. That usually includes the higher end cameras, tripods, gadgets, and photography software programs. But as many photographers know, it's sometimes just being in the right place, at the right time - and simply having a photographers "eye".

I started my amature photography career in February of 2005. My digital camera was an inexpensive Olympus D-460 - 1.3 Megapixel "Point and Shoot".

While vacationing on the Oregon Coast, my wife and I pulled over at the Manzanita Bay Overlook and witnessed one of the most amazing scenes I have ever photographed. The silhouette of the guitarist looking out over the Pacific Ocean is one of my all-time favorite shots. The mist on the beach below, and the emotion that the guitarist portrays with just his silhouette, is something that can rarely be reproduced or staged. It's not always the camera...
