The “Moron Behind the Camera” is More Important Than the Camera

A fairly long time ago, photographer Zack Arias shared a video on sensor sizes and how the full frame vs APS-C sensor debate is pretty much useless. Instead, he pushes the idea that the “Moron behind the camera” is much more important. Today, more than anything else, that’s so important. Photographers are able to create awesome images with just an an iPhone camera. The sensor size won’t necessarily matter–but what will instead is the creative vision of the photographer or the knowledge that they have.

Zack discusses how since he’s very experienced, he can do the job with any camera out there. Additionally, he makes a great point: no photographer so far has had a full life long career just shooting digital. All of the cameras are so good that anyone can take a great picture. But what’s most important here is that the photographer creating the images has a creative vision and knows how to actually make the photos.

Zack’s tutorials are all part of the five day deal–which lasts only a few more hours.
