There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.

Ernst Haas (1921 – 1986)


Photojournalist Haas was one of the first photographers to use colour in his work. During his 40-year career, the Austrian-born artist bridged the gap between photojournalism and the use of photography as a medium for expression and creativity. In addition to his prolific coverage of events around the globe after World War II, Haas was an early innovator in color photography. His impressive career included becoming President of Magnum Photos, and publishing one of the most successful photography books ever.

The last couple of days I was kind of obsessed with the idea of having to buy a full-frame to make better photos. I even went to the store and tested them out!

But when I read this quote, I knew that a full-frame camera will not magically improve my photography – I realised the limitations were within me and that my mind is the only “gear” that I need to upgrade.

I’ll continue shooting with my Nikon D90, which is 7 years old now until I reach a point where I have to have a full-frame, whatever the reasons may be …

What kind of camera do you own? Did you upgrade to full-frame and turned out to be a better photographer??
