Morning, my fellow photographers! 🙂
How are you all doing? Have you snapped any new pictures lately?
As a freelance photographer, I’m here to share my thoughts on camera gear and provide valuable advice for beginners. I believe in mastering the basics of photography before investing in expensive equipment, and I will share my personal gear setup. This post is a must-read for any aspiring shutterbug looking to take their skills to the next level. But before we dive in, let me tell you that gear isn’t the most important thing in photography; it’s just a tool that you need to capture great shots.
I’ve noticed that beginners tend to get too caught up in gear (I was guilty of this too) 🙂 and end up spending a fortune on equipment they might not even need. It’s important to know what you want to shoot before splurging on gear, as it can be a costly mistake.
When starting out, it’s best to learn the basics of photography and take as many photos as you can. You’ll start to realize that gear is not always the weakest link. In fact, once you master your current equipment, you’ll know when it’s time to upgrade to something more advanced.
Now, enough chitchat! Let’s talk about my camera gear. My current setup includes:
- Sony a7 III
- Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8
- Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3
- Sony 50mm f/1.8
- Velbon tripod
I prefer manual settings and shooting in RAW format. My favorite photo editing programs are Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, but lately I’ve also been playing around with Gimp and Darktable. Soon, I’ll write more about these two fantastic and free programs.
So, that’s it for today, folks! Thanks for stopping by and reading my post.
