We as photographers think that the next new camera will make for better images. If money was no object, and you could have any photographic equipment that your heart desired, but you put something boring in front of that camera, odds are you would get a boring image. Take the money you would spend on a camera and take a trip to somewhere interesting. The camera is the “middleman” of the creative process. Passion behind the camera and something interesting in front of the camera is a good formula for great images.
