The best paint brushes in the world! (aka Fauxtographers)
So here's a simple question - does buying the best brushes and paint money can buy, make a person a great artist?
NO - RIGHT?
I can't tell you how many times I've heard - ooooh (someone) has a really good camera - they must be able to take really good pictures!
Sorry to say it doesn't work that way either.
Besides - there is a huge misconception of what a "really good camera" is. Once digital photography became popular and affordable - the DSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera started becoming marketed to the masses at places like WalMart, Target and Best Buy (among others) - while playing off of the mystique of professional cameras - they look the part - but at a fraction of the cost and performance. So the world ended up with a huge wave of "Fauxtographers" - people with no skill and cheap/mediocre equipment - who try to look the part of a professional. Big Box store cameras do not a professional make. In fact most of the real professional photography equipment never sees the light of day in any generic retail store.
That's not to say it's not a good place for someone to start out finding a beginner kit to test their interest and learn some things - but the real professional cameras and lenses are thousands and thousands - even tens of thousands of dollars. More importantly though is the experience level and education - it doesn't happen overnight and a person has to be really dedicated to improving.
