I’m a firm believer in not getting hung up on gear, and I’m often quoted as saying ‘the best camera is the one in your hand’.  Well, to steal a quote from the great David Bailey, I also consider myself an ‘available light’ kinda guy.  What do I mean by that?  Well, basically, I’ll use whatever is available!

In this particular case, we were at a party, the sparkly bits in the background are christmas fairy lights and the Rembrandt lighting on Izzy’s face is provided by the little LED flash on my mobile phone..

Stop making excuses about the gear, start taking more photos!
