I read someone's caption that said something like: "you can have the nicest camera, and still take horrible photos. It's not the camera that can take a nice picture, but the person behind the camera." This post goes with my last, panicked post to encourage myself. lol if people from the old days can take pictures with old cameras and have beautiful images, I'm going to try my damn best to not let not having a dslr stop me from becoming better at capturing images. HELL, I'm going to thrive and try my best to become better, regardless of whether I have to use a cheap little Sony or Olympus point-and-shoot I find at the thrift store.
