"What's in your camera bag?"
The photography on this website is a menagerie of both old and new work taken with different cameras over the years. I'm often asked what is in my camera bag and often hear someone say, "Wow, you must have a great camera!". Yet, if you browse my iPhoneography portfolio, it should be obvious that skill and a bit of luck will enable beauty despite the camera used. Yes, I have a nice DSLR and I have never regretted the investment. However, when I compare my DSLR work to my iPhoneography, as a photographic artist I feel far more free with the iPhone. Owning a DSLR results in a bit of implied responsibility to produce beauty. Though you can capture great images SOOC (straight out of camera), I much prefer to edit images to create my own personal version of what I captured. With an iPhone, my workflow is far faster and mobile compared to with my DSLR where I often have client projects that result in much of my personal projects being delayed months or longer. So in all honesty, I feel that it truly doesn't matter as long as as a photographer I am still creating and sharing the beauty that I see and discover during my existence.
