Quite often I get comment like, “It’s all down to the Camera”
Modern day cameras do take some good images in auto mode, the camera can only do so much. In auto settings try and take a picture in low light without flash. You most likely can’t!
A photographer will know to drop the shutter speed, pump up the ISO, and drop the aperture if needed. Good photographers think of different perspectives, know how to frame a good photo, and know how important the composition is. While the camera may be able to do many things, the camera cannot do it with out someone who has the knowledge of how to manipulate the settings to capture what they want to photograph.
Think about it and so it isn't all down to the camera!
