I got tired of people giving my camera credit, so I bought a $200 DSLR kit ...

PHILLIP HAUMESSER, PETAPIXEL:

When I first began posting my photos online, I started getting comments like “Wow, you must have a great camera!,” or “Anybody can take photos like these with expensive gear,” or “I can’t take photos like these because I can’t afford an expensive camera like yours.”

It saddens me when I hear people say things like this. Or when people feel like they can’t get any better or they don’t have a chance because they’re stuck with a cheap camera.

I finally had enough of these comments and decided to prove these people wrong by finding the cheapest camera and lens I could find and take some photos with them!
