I agree Jack. One of the biggest myths in photography is that a more expensive camera and expensive lens will improve your photography. Sure....sometimes limits on photography are based on your equipment (i.e. taking dark ride shots...you need a camera with high ISO abilities and some fast glass).

But IMHO the best thing a person can do to improve their shots is to increase their knowledge of basic knowledge of photography. Gain a better understanding of the relationship between ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. Understand how harsh light can impact your photos. Take the time to learn to read a histogram...and use that knowledge to make immediate changes in your camera settings. Learn how to hold your camera to improve your chances of getting sharp photos. Learn the basics of composition.

I'm one of those guys who once believed that purchasing high end camera bodies and lenses would improve my photography overnight. That did not happen...but once I started to understand the basics of photography, my shots started to improve. I still have a lot to learn, but at least I am making progress.

You are speaking a foreign language to me. Most of my pictures are taken with my phone. That's why I am so thankful to those of you that share your knowledge, ability, and the products of your investments with the rest of us.
