Photographers at Mango Street decided to show the difference between pro photographers with amateur gear and an amateur with pro gear, and the differences are actually quite remarkable.
They gave a $3,300 Canon 5D Mark IV with a $1,650 Canon 35mm f/1.4L II lens to their friend who is a photography amateur. Meanwhile, the two professional photographers got a relatively cheap (~$500) Canon Rebel T3i with low-end lenses. Check out the results below.
Here are the results:
Daniel (Pro with Amateur Gear)
Rachel (Pro with Amateur Gear)
Justin (Amateur with Pro Gear)
