I'm not sure why, but photography, more than any other artistic or athletic pursuit, seems to cultivate the impression that the equipment you have will drastically improve the quality of your performance. I don't believe anyone really expects to score like Steph Curry just because they're wearing his shoes no more than they expect to play golf like Jordan Spieth if they're using the same clubs he plays with, but it's not unusual to hear something like, "That's a great picture. You must have a really good camera." Imagine saying something similar to your doctor after a successful surgery. "I can't even see where you removed my gall bladder. You must have some really great surgical instruments!" Try this one on your significant other after a memorable meal. "That was delicious! You must have an expensive stove." Please let me know how that goes.
I'm a firm believer that the best camera is the one you have with you. Lots of folks are creating extraordinary images and videos with their cell phones. My iPhone 6 has an excellent imaging system and I don't hesitate to use it when I'm not packing my "big" cameras. Great pictures are waiting to be made. I encourage you to keep looking and shoot with what you have.
This image was made with my phone while my wife and I were having lunch at a small restaurant. We were sitting near the window and I noticed her shadow on the opposite wall put a "ghost diner" at the table across from us.
