Does photography Gear Matter? A Beginner’s Perspective. I wanted to make this video as a response to a couple of videos I came across. I don’t know if I can use other people’s names in my video, but one is an established who’s video’s I have been binge watching. Who argues that gear dose not matter. I came across when I was acutely looking up camera reviews. Referencing the first Video. This video made the argument that gear does matter.
