I stumbled on this video via aphotoeditor a couple of days ago, and other than pretty much recognising that park over in Randwick... I was very much struck by Doug Bayne's aka safteyhammer's argument against; or was it a warning about; the impossibility of instant excellence as a film maker simply by buying a DSLR camera!
For those of you who may not have the time to watch I made some screenshots of Doug's graphics illustrating his experience, captioned my Moi!
Go On, buy one its cheap, the world will be your Oyster..
Um, more to this than I thought..
Maybe I need more than a camera, like a budget!
"And I need to come up with some good ideas"
"IDEAS! that's not in the box"
That second largest quadrant, its NOT professional cinematographers by the way, just sayin'
And this is who & what it was all about!
Mind you this is just what happened to film photographers with the release of affordable digital cameras, people started believing it was just a matter buying the camera and picture excellence would be theirs. Instant Fashion Photographers anyone? Sadly or perhaps not surprisingly it isn't so, Ideas and Experience don't come in the box with the camera. My thanks to Doug Bayne for pointing this out in such an amusing and concise manner.
Bloody well done!
