This project started last May of this year. After watching Daido Moriyama’s Near Equal Documentary, I was inspired on how he sees things around him so differently. He uses a film Ricoh point and shoot which is a simple and easy to operate camera, then I realised that the camera did not get in his way to taking great and compelling photographs.
Today, the camera is the master of the photographer. Mr. Moriyama did not allow the camera to make him its slave. He controls his camera and makes it serve him, don’t treat your camera like a precious gem. It’s not about the camera on the first place, it’s all about you, you’re the one making the photograph and not your camera, it’s just their to capture the image you created by the use of your imagination and the moment taking place.
Any camera will do, and the best camera is the one with you. Never let the camera control you and take all the happiness in doing photography. Just always have fun!
