You have taken a few selfies. You are the, self-proclaimed, photographer at family events. Your Instagram profile is on point.
Now you’ve decided to enter the world of photography. Let us help you get started.
1. Choosing Your First Camera
A common question among first-time photographers is among the lines of what camera they should buy. You might want to start with a basic budget beating camera, such as the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W800 Digital Camera. More adventurous and daring starters would like to go all out, and opt for a more expensive, and complete option. Perhaps the Canon EOS 800D Double Lens Bundle would do?
At the end of the day, the question shouldn’t be about the type or brand of camera. It shouldn’t even be about the camera. Which brings us to the next point.
2. Craft Before Camera
When starting out, with anything in life, it is more important to hone your skills before swinging the sword. The Canon EOS 77D Body is great, but won’t magically create breathtakingly beautiful photos. It is essential that you learn all the rules, as they provide a foundation for more advanced photography tips and tricks later in your journey. Learn to hold the sword before we swing it.
Obviously, the best way to learn and grow, is with a camera! We would suggest any camera that has manual controls and allows you to shoot in raw format. You could go for a DSLR camera, but keep in mind that you will have to buy other lenses as well. We suggest the Canon PowerShot SX70 HS. It comes with a 65x Zoom Lens, a DIGIC 8 image Processor, and image stabilization.
