"Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder". Nowhere is this more true than in photography. Two photographers may take a picture of the same place, object, person, or thing at the same time but it is the photographer's style, composition, perception, and skill that will determine whether the picture is breathtaking or run of the mill.

If a picture is just representation of the photographer's vision, then does the camera even matter? After all, the vision resides within the photographer's mind, then what role does the camera play?

The views on this one are clearly divided. While one segment truly believes that photography is an inherent talent and will come forth, regardless of the camera. The other segment believes that a good quality camera will elevate one's photography to a different level. The truth may lie somewhere in between. A photograph is a combination of the photographer's vision and the camera's ability to execute that vision. In fact, it is more apt to say that the camera is a tool that helps the photographer achieve his or her vision. What are your thoughts on this? The photographer or the camera, which one do you think is more important. Post your views in the comments section below.
