Canon 400D + Tamron 17-50/2.8

I would like to describe my present and last photography equipment in this section. Nevertheless, I am holding an opinion, that the photo equipment isn’t the most important part of the process of creation of the great picture.

It’s an only instrument, which helps us – photographers - to realize our ideas and creative potential in sufficient technical quality, which won’t decrease the greatness of the picture.
