Not only the camera model, at times ppl also ask what lense / settings used. Does these really matter so much in making a good photo? If we find the photo is nice shouldn't we study the composition and ponder what makes the photo works instead bothering over what cam / lense / settings etc is used?
I have a Brownie. You might get a inspiring image with it but it'll be more fuzzy than you can imagine, most of the time. :sweatsm:
I think some people are just inquisitive but others have a brand-promoting agenda at all times, so they ask. Equipment collectors also care, but true photographers rarely do. It's only the photography that counts.
it's actually a compliment to you, IMO, because that person cannot believe that you can produce such a nice photo yourself and at the same time, obviously he doesnt know much about photography to have to ask you those questions ..... :think:
in this case the cook cannot quite modify his food after it is finally prepared
whereas there is photoshop <3 <3 <3
take for example, colors produced by good lens and colors produced by not so good lens - if you spend enough time you can probably achieve the same thing so long as the not so good lens is not horrible
if got cui oil and good oil, you sit there for 8000 years and tweak the taste also no use
