This photo was taken with my first ever digital camera, the Olympus C2 D230 in 2002, the photo quality wasn't great compared with todays current digital cameras, but that freedom of creating images, then being able to download them straight onto your computer, was amazing.
So, lessons that I've learned:
1) When a manufacturer produces a new product, it's not neccessarily a better product.
2) The camera in your hand, is always the best camera.
3) The most memorable photo in your life; is the one that you were unable to take.
4) It's you taking the photograph; not the camera.
5) Don't be obsessed with camera gear, find a camera that suits you, and get to know how to get the best from what you have.
6) Great photographs tell a story, they are that magical combination of: light, composition, and focus.
