It's not the hardware that takes a good picture.

ok...it HELPS make it possible...you can't get that shot with a EF 75-300 lens...

I think we all know that its not just equipment...but at some point, we have to admit...equipment helps us create...

It's not JUST the hardware but when you're shooting with a 135 f2 you're going to get a much better photo than an 18-55 f3.5-5.6 kit lens.
It's all about knowing what kit to use to get the best results for the kind of photos you're trying to take. The OP has nailed it with this one.

Just be careful with your watermark. It is all pixelated and look horrendous. You don't want a very nice photo ruined by an awful watermark.

Funny op, I literally just "remembered" this yesterday.

Here are a couple from that combo from yesterday:

Everything is relative.

It's hard to take a bad picture with this combo. I also find it's easiest to PP, you can really push PS to its limits. I have never seen a lens that has better colors SOOC.

It's quite possible to take bad pictures with anything. Gear helps yes, but that is only one element.


Your logo ruins the photo, unfortunately, which is strange considering the gear you have. Clearly you can afford a professional to design a decent logo for you..

Lol. That's a watermark, not my logo. It goes on all of my photos that I share so they don't get stolen. The customer didn't receive a watermark because they paid to not have one. As for a decent design, I happen to like it and made it for free for the purpose explained earlier. I do appreciate your concern though.

Be careful with posing when using large aperture to keep all faces within the focal plane. The male's face isn't in focus.
