Landscape photography is my passion. The way I see it, I am an artist who has chosen a digital camera and some software as my tools. And there are some great tools available to make our creative process even easier.
Do you really good gear to produce fine art landscape images?
Not really, but if you can afford it, then get it. All the equipment in the world won't help you if you are not a good photographer. However if you do have a natural eye then get the best gear you can afford. Sell the kids if you have to!
