Mattias Burling has a great online presence and is well known for his gear reviews.
His latest video is a bit of a departure for him, but I wanted to feature it as Mattias illustrates what he believes makes his top 5 images online (Instagram), popular.
Spoiler alert, it’s not the camera, the software or the lens, it’s the photographer.
There are similarities in some of the images but this video proves two things:
- It’s not the camera you have with you – but always having a camera with you
- Inspiration can come at any time – we simply need to be aware of our surroundings
Mattias is very humble in this video but I think he teaches us a lot and illustrates what a great beginner photographer he is.
Next time inspiration strikes you, use what you have at your disposal to capture the shot – your point and shoot, your DSLR, your mobile etc.
Just make sure you leave the house with a camera, any camera!
Well done Mattias and thanks for sharing such an inspiring and informative video.
