You don't need Expensive Equipment to take Breathtaking Photos

Come on admit it. You’ve at least one project that you’re putting off because you haven’t got the right equipment to do it properly. What is It for you? For me, I’ve been putting of getting back into running because I need me some new Nikes to run in. Celebrity photographer Philippe Echaroux, however, does not hold this attitude.

Although Echaroux normally works with high-end photography equipment and snaps some of the most famous people on the planet he recently took up a challenge to show people that you don’t need expensive equipment to do a job well. So what was the name of this challenge? It was the Big Mac Portrait Challenge.

Believe it or not Phillipe Echaroux took it upon himself to take some portrait photos using only a used Big Mac box, a torch, a straw and an iPhone. The results will blow you away.

I’m really impressed with the great results Echaroux has been able to achieve using such basic tools. I’m definitely going to try this method out and you should too. The real message is that rather than looking for reasons not to do something we should spend our time trying to come up with solutions to the problems that are standing in our way.

Great job Echaroux, I suppose now I’ll go dig out my old sneakers and get running again rather than waiting until I can buy myself a shiny new pair.
