If you don’t know the answer to that question – you haven’t been on the internet very long. Of course you can – David Geffin pulls some amazing samples of great work done on relatively inexpensive gear.
If you’d asked me this question last week, I would have said no. What a difference a few days makes. Ruslan Pelykh, a New York City-based videographer and photographer, is creating outstanding video with a Leica D Lux 6, a 10 megapixel, $600 point and shoot. This post is a kick up the butt for anyone hanging on for a piece of gear as being the reason they can’t create with what they have. Welcome to creating more, with less.
Ruslan Pelykh, originally from the Ukraine, has been in New York less than a year but is already making his presence felt. He shoots and edits all of his own work, having started out only a few years ago. He quickly moved from shooting DSLR video like ‘Angel’, a video he shot two years ago on a Canon 7D and with one 24-70mm lens and 2 simple continuous lights with a couple of soft boxes on them.
Of course gear matters – to a degree. It does not (and will never) define what you are able to create for yourself. While many won’t admit it, this article aims to show it’s not so much about what you have, but what you do with it that counts.
