Today we offer the final installment of responses to “Wise Words from Working Photographers.”
This quote comes via the interent from another Chris – he includes a link to a comic to make his fine point:
“The best photo-related quote that I have heard – by far – comes from What The Duck – a comic.
I imagine this is a variation on the story of a photographer at dinner whose host says “I love your pictures. You must have a really nice camera“.
The photographer responds by saying “Dinner was great. You must have really nice pots and pans.”
Anyway, I think it nicely illustrates the point that the most important part of taking a picture is the person behind the camera. As photographers, it is good to be reminded of this and not get too carried away with lusting after new gear.

Thanks Chris – well said!
