This PROVES once again, it's not the CAMERA, it's the person behind it
I love seeing basic gear capture solid images. It hammers home that it’s the photographer not the gear, most of the time.
In this case the photographer was working with some basic Nikon’s and doing a great job with what they had. What I look for in these critiques are a few solid images. When you come out with 6 or 7 solid images you are doing something right.
Just remember, if you think your camera is doing a terrible job taking photos, be sure to make you are not the one to blame first.
