There is still much to be treated composition. But the more advanced concepts of composition has an intimate relationship with light and focus, as you can see in the review that did the work of Peter Scott Eide, which is in itself an extra class on composition and a preview of what we will examine more on the course in an unprecedented approach to the aesthetics of photographic composition. But there is no way to get there without knowing a little about equipment.

Equipment is important?

Galen Rowell, one of the most famous photographers today, said: "Ninety percent of the best work of my life were made with a manual body, a 24mm lens and a tele zoom in the range of 80-200mm."

No need to have the latest equipment and spend a fortune to make good pictures. Most great photographers worked with simpler equipment than today.

Just see another great example: the exceptional super macro Thomas Shaham, made with an old Pentax and an inverted wide-angle lens with extenders and bellows and a makeshift flash diffuser with cereal and tape box.

But one must understand that in the era of the film things were slightly different. The most important elements of the photographic process were the photographer, lens, film and revelation in the laboratory. The cheap action camera body could be simple and fully manual.

The photographer and the lens remain equally important, but the films - and there were really very good films - have been replaced by digital sensors, a specialized processor along with all the electronic apparatus that surrounds it. Result: the camera body no longer possible to be something simple, because the sensor, the processor and the image processing algorithm has to be very good - they are substitutes for films in the record of light and partly laboratory because a good photo does not require almost no post processing.

So the answer to the question is yes, the equipment is important and should be well chosen, especially so that it gives you control over the act of shooting - can not be an automated equipment that is difficult to work in manual mode or semi-automatic, as the cornerstone remains the one that is holding the camera and pressing the buttons.

Until recently there were in the market basically only two types of hd digital camcorder: photo hit cameras and camera shooting.
