The advancement of technology has changed things across almost all industries of the world for the better. In the photography world, things have changed for the better, but Luca De Massis feels that there is still a certain mindset that people need to change around photography. He thinks that many believe that only a professional camera or gear can take the best photographs, which is far from reality. Luca De Massis, who has been in the field for quite a long time, explains that in the end, if a person is skilled enough, he can create photography magic with whatever equipment or device he has. “It is all about strengthening the basics and gaining expertise over time in the field,” says the Italian photographer and videographer.
Luca has been in the field for the past 15 years and holds expertise on the subject like no one else. This 38-year-old Italian photographer has mastered the art of photography through his years of clicking some of the best moments of people’s lives, which has gained him wide recognition. Many esteemed brands like Forbes, Vogue, and many more have featured his work in their columns which proves the kind of mark he has created in the field of photography. According to Luca, one doesn’t really need a professional photographer to get the work done. In fact, he believes that the gear doesn’t really matter; it is the person’s talent behind the lens.
He says that the camera doesn’t define one as a photographer, and skilled photographers can do that because they know how to use the camera and, most importantly, understand the fundamentals of photography. Luca De Massis points out that all talented photographers have one thing in common, which is their commitment to take the time to learn the basics. Speaking on the same, he says, “If you want to become a better photographer, you need to learn a few essential learn these things like the Exposure Triangle, Compositional techniques, Light, Colour. These are the things that help you create compelling images.”
He further explains that when one understands these fundamentals, one will realize that a professional camera wouldn’t have helped them in the beginning and wouldn’t have instantly made images better. What really matters is the creative mind, ideas, and eye of the photographer and not the camera gear. People can capture the greatest photographs and images even with a $10 camera; it all depends on how the photographer uses the device or the equipment.
