I remember an event where I was invited by a client to take pictures of their special menu. I was honest enough to tell them that I do not own a nice camera. However, she didn't mind because she just needed a simple documentation to upload on facebook. That night, she lent me her Canon EoS 400d (I'm not sure if I got the model right as it was my first time to operate and handle SLR).

Who's the real PRO?
The event was attended by high profile individuals as well as bloggers and photographers. Most of whom were totting big lenses but there were some who slung simple ones. I couldn't determine who the pros were but I it was obvious who could "afford" and those who were there for the passion of it.
I admire the humility of experienced photographers who do not judge you according to your accessories but the sincerity of your efforts to improve your skills in photography.
