Is it possible to take good shots (especially of landscapes/outdoor scenery, or local city-based photos) even if your camera is low-quality, and you lack the accessories (ie. specialised lens, large flash, etc)? By "good" I'm referring to the photos in travel magazines and books. My budget isn't really large, perhaps $300 at max for a digital camera. At most I'll be looking at around 4-5MP, a little optical zoom, without any other accessories. I don't suppose there's any cheaper methods of taking photos, such as substituting household objects for the accessories? What about if I decrease the image resolution (take it down from 800X600 to 680X480)? Will that help to improve the photos, or can people tell the difference?
