"Anyone that can afford to buy and learn to use one of today's high end full frame digital cameras is almost guaranteed technically good images. But even the best camera is still just a tool. A great photograph first of all requires the mastery of composition. To create an evocative representation of the three dimensional world, to breathe life into an instant grabbed from time, also requires an understanding of the nature of light and the ability to control it. Many of the aspects of composition and lighting can be learned, but the best photographic artists must have a talent that transcends formulas and numbers; a creative spark that comes from the heart."
