if someone had paid me every time a client asks what camera i use, i would have earned somewhere between 7000 Rupees now! when clients ask me what camera i use, i share my wedding gallery link and tell them, if you like my pictures, then i'm using the right camera,
recently i read blog where the author lists out 10 questions that you should be asking a wedding photographer, though most of them made real sense like asking the photographer regarding the deliverables - it also had a question where the client should be asking the photographer on what camera he uses! my take in the grand old question is, while hiring a wedding photographer or any photographer for that matter, you should be going through his recent works or instead of checking his equipments, because a there are high possibility that you would rate an armature as a professional by the camera he owns, Photographic equipments only tells a part of the story the real picture is always the final work that a photographer shows..
The obsession with 5D mark III
Canon's 5D Mark III is the big daddy of professional cameras that is out in the market, though i have been using 5D Mark III lately, i have heard people telling me that, oh you are using a 5D! then you should be a professional, im a professional, yes, this is what I do full time but please stop tagging me as a professional because i use Canon 5D Mark III in your weddings, i was a professional even before using a mark iii and i will remain a professional even if i switch to Canon 6d. Though the relationship between a photographer and his camera has often been compared to a pen and an author, i completely disagree with this comparison, in my view, the relationship is like that one between an F1 driver and the driver himself, you need the best form of both but the important part is always the human not the machine.
All the images shown in this blog are taken in my beloved Canon 600D and they are one of the finest images that i have taken on any camera and of course the client's loved it
