Zack Arias Attempts Pro Photos with a Cheap Camera

15 Comments

The idea that the camera doesn’t make the photographer is, most will agree, a sufficiently dead and overly beaten horse of a subject. It’s nice, however, to actually see the concept in action and taken to an extreme. Of course you could give an enthusiast a several thousand dollar camera and see what effect it has, but the people over at DigitalRev take the opposite approach: they give a crappy camera to a pro photographer.

In this particular installment, the photographer is Zack Arias, who is known for getting great results using a one-flash method. Keeping that in mind, Kai gives him not only an extremely cheap Kodak camera, but also a Nikon flash before setting him loose on the streets of China. It’s safe to say he runs into at least one or two problems as he goes along.
