One of the first questions people ask about photography is what camera to use: compact or SLR? Several years ago I was lucky enough to spend a week in the Cayman Islands for a series of photography workshops followed by a competition at the end. The week was well attended and there must have been around 60 photographers and instructors diving from various locations around the island. As you might expect most of the blokes had large SLR rigs with multiple strobes and all sorts of paraphernalia, however one lady in our group had a top-end compact and a wide angle wet lens. In the competition at the end of the week her shots wiped the floor with most of the images taken on SLRs. Was her camera technically better? Obviously not. The difference was that she understood how to get the most out of her camera and went looking for the kinds of photos that would work best for the kit she had. Watching her work, and seeing the results, was a very instructive lesson. You do not have to spend a fortune on the best kit available, but whatever you use, spend the time to learn how to use it well and you will be able to get good results out of almost any equipment.
