My new Photography Blog

As I was writing many posts about photography in my Programming Dashboard Widgets blog, I though that it would be nice to create a new blog :)

My new blog is called Mihalis Tsoukalos Photography and you can find it here.

Your Camera Doesn't Matter

"It's always better to spend your time and money on learning art and photography, not by spending it on more cameras.


So why do the artists whose works you admire tend to use fancy, expensive tools if the quality of the work is the same? Simple:

1.) Good tools just get out of the way and make it easier to get the results you want. Lesser tools may take more work.
2.) They add durability for people who use these tools hard all day, every day.
3.) Advanced users may find some of the minor extra features convenient. These conveniences make the photographer's life easier, but they don't make the photos any better.
4.) Hey, there's nothing wrong with the best tools, and if you have the money to blow why not? Just don't ever start thinking that the fancy tools are what created the work."

  • I had to install a patch in order to be able to execute BookSmart (
  • I had to update DxO Optics Pro to version 5.3.5
  • My Joomla! installation displayed some errors. I may have to upgrade it...
