BOATHOUSE-ROW-PHILLY-03-2Boathouse Row Reflections – F/8, 30 s, 50mm, ISO 100, 97MP

There is a photography quote from Vernon Trent, ..amateurs worry about equipment, professionals worry about money, masters worry about light, I just take pictures… In photography forums, you can see people spending too much time talking about gears and doing less time photographing. It’s about who’s got the best tripods and lenses.

Do people or clients really care about the gear you used to take that photo? The answer is no. If it looks good in their living room or kitchen they will buy it. I have been in this location a couple of times in Philadelphia, the famous Boathouse Row. I’ve sold three photos from this location using not so expensive lenses. My point really is you to go out there and shoot!

The above pictures were photographed with a Nikkor 50mm F/1.8 I bought for 80 bucks off Craigslist, stitched in PS and post-processed in Lightroom.
