Megapixel Myth Intro

I started taking photos in my youth with one of Canon’s first SureShot 35mm cameras. After years of taking little to no photos at all I got my first digital camera in 2004. It was a 2.1 megapixel point & shot HP my Pops gave me. Since then I  have gotten newer and bigger pixel cameras, most used point & shots, and have continued to learn from them. The one thing I have learned is not to chase the pixel, as in this never-ending “my camera is better than yours because I have more pixels than you” war that has being going on for well since there were pixels. Later down the road I will give you my opinion on why more is not better but for now the short answer is this: No camera can take a great shot. It is a combination of skill, learned or natural, following your passion (a.k.a. shooting what sings to you while challenge yourself with that does not sing to you) and technology that makes a great shot.

Here is two pics I took this afternoon with a 4 megapixel Canon point & shot. Since I like rusty things I like both of theses for the texture of them. Till the next time keep taking the shot and always Enjoy!
