A determined soul will do more with a rusty monkey wrench than a loafer will accomplish with all the tools in a machine shop
I started shooting with a Canon EOS 350d, the only reason I bought the Canon was because it came with a free printer, then came the lenses and I stuck with brand for the better part of 7 years, I have no particular allegiances to any brands. Until recently I’ve had no reason to change from Canon, but I was sold on the quality and size of the Sony mirrorless range and got myself an A7 MII.
I’d like to shoot more in film, not because it’s now a funky Hipster trend but its seems to be a good way to learn the discipline of planning your shots carefully. I think we can sometimes get lazy and just blast shots mindlessly hoping to get a couple of good ones generating Terabytes of really crappy photos. The way you think changes when you only have 12 shots on a spool of film that cost R130 ($10) you really make those pictures count.
From what I’ve seen having good gear does help alot but it’s not everything.
