For those of you who purchased and read my ebook, Guerrilla Glamour, you're aware I invested more than a few pages writing about the importance of gear. I didn't write about expensive gear being important to capturing great glam photos -- the book's called, Guerrilla Glamour after all -- I wrote about using the right gear for the job. (With tips, ideas, and suggestions for using that "right" gear.)
Often enough, the right gear has little to do with how much you're willing or able to spend. As I mentioned in the ebook, "You can have the best gear that money can buy and still shoot photos that suck." (That really sucks, doesn't it?)
To further underscore the point, here's a video I came across (thanks to the good guys at FadedandBlurred.com) that shows what can be accomplished with an iPhone. The photographer in the video purposely set out to shoot a fashion/beauty set with, what he calls, the worst camera you can use.
I'm not suggesting all of you chuck your dSLRs in favor of shooting pretty girls with cell phones. I'm just saying it ain't just about the gear... capturing great images, that is.
Hope you enjoy the video.
