I have an OK camera and took pictures with that. Nowadays you can photoshop anything to look great.

yeah thats true. raising the contrast in a shitty picture can make it beautiful.

although don't underestimate talent in photography... composition and ideas are often overlooked. and also, with this technology, you can do some amazing things.
fck.

Yes I agree.. composition is where it's all at. I can't view your photos cuz my 1d107 Admin blocked myspace.

Exactly. A good photographer can take a great photo with amateur equipment and have it look interesting. Even with expensive gear, a beginner photographer just makes really high-quality photos that are just as boring as the next person's.

It's the difference between a pro recording studio and some schmuck who just downloaded a Sonar crack to use with his Soundblaster card. Even if they swapped tools, a pro engineer will be able to make a better recording with a couple of SM57's and a trial copy of Reaper and a soundblaster card than that same amateur could with a fistful of U87's and a Neve console.

The tools are important, to be sure, but the knowledge and skill is what sets the two apart.
