Recently, as I started getting back into photography I read something that stuck with me (though sadly the source didn't). To paraphrase:
If you were able to take a great photo on a camera from 1979 then that same camera can still take a great photo today. New and shiny tech may make certain things easier, but a good photo is a good photo. Ultimately, the viewer won't give a shit which camera you used
As a frontend developer, I think about this a lot.
