A photographer is invited to a dinner party. When he arrives the hostess says, "I've seen your beautiful photos. You must have a very good camera." After the meal she says to the photographer, "How did you like your dinner?" He responds, "It was delicious, you must have a very good stove."

Nice sharing! So that's the true feeling of images hunter ^^
Lot of truth here. But good gear does help. I wouldn't go back to film for all the tea in China.
Oh) so cool)
i had three cameras in the repair shop and a wedding to shoot. My mentor offered to lend me a camera instead of renting a camera from my local shop. He handed me a Kowa 66 and a lens with a cracked element. I was surprised he would expect me to shoot with equipment in this shape. When I said so he told me, "it's not the equipment you shoot with, but how you shoot with the equipment you have". I took that as a challenge and shot one of the best weddings I have ever shot. He is so right! I agree. It is not the camera you have, but what you do with it!
:-) Nice story!
It is so true, I read somewhere and use a lot this: " A photograph is shaped more by the person behind the camera than by what's in front of it."
It certainly does. Great Pictures are made, not taken.
It is a very funny old joke but it illustrates very well the fact that the determining factor for a excellent pic will always be the photographer himself.
