Fancy Camera Takes Better Photos, Myth or Fact?

There is a misconception about Fancy Camera makes better photos. Let’s check it out to find if it is a myth or fact.


Ansel Adams, one of the most outstanding photographers, once said, “Camera Takes Photos, Photographer Makes Picture!” And that is the truth.¬†


Let’s take a quick look at pieces that make great pictures.

Fancy Camera Takes Better Photo??


1- Exposure

Exposure is the key element of a good photo, and it plays a significant role in photography. Correct Exposure is the right combination of Shutter Speed, Aperture, and ISO. To take better pictures, you need to learn your camera’s settings to control the Exposure.

Shutter Speed:

Shutter speed is the duration of light entering the camera. The slower the shutter speed, the more light enters the camera, and vice-versa.

Here is an example of slow shutter speed.

Aperture controls the volume of light. The wider the aperture, the more light passes through the lens., and vice-versa.

Here is a sample:


Aperture in Photography
Aperture is a measurement unit for the opening of a lens.


ISO is the sensitivity of the camera’s sensor to the light. The higher the ISO, the camera needs less light to capture the image, i.e. you can use a faster shutter speed and/or smaller aperture.


Halloween Photography Tricks
Using Higher ISO creates grainy photos. This can be an interesting effect for Halloween photos

2- Composition

Composition is the artistic element in photography, and like other arts, it is very subjective. 

There are many Composition rules. It is essential to learn these rules and then break them! If all photographers use the same rules, all the pictures will look the same.

Learn the rules, and then break them purposely, and that is the point of being an artist!

Here is a sample of using a composition rule:

Composition is the only reason that makes this photo pleasing. I used iPhone 4s to take this picture.
