I am sure you’ve heard this before, but contrary to popular belief, the camera doesn’t make the image. YOU do. You don’t need to upgrade your equipment just to run with the big dogs, and top-of-the-line gear isn’t carte blanche to the photographer’s Hall of Fame. So be proud to carry your favorite camera into the field. As long as you know what all the buttons do and have a grasp of fundamental principles, you’ve got everything you need to take an awesome photo—like the above shot, taken with a Canon M3, fixed 22mm lens, point-and-shoot.

“I don’t take a photograph, I Capture a Moment, The Decisive Moment”. Henri Cartier-Bresson photographer of Magnum Photos . "Photography is not like painting," Cartier-Bresson told The Washington Post in 1957. "There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative," he said. "Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever."
Commissioned by Tees Valley Community Foundation to photograph the team at the office. Rather than photograph individuals looking at the camera, the idea here is to capture team members as they work and engage in conversation. Using available light and a 200 mm lens at f2.8, I am able to photograph the subjects unobtrusively.
