CAMERA TIPS & TRICKS
Where to start?!
There are countless books, magazines and adverts telling you the best camera, lens, flash…etc.
BUY WHAT SUITS YOU AND YOUR NEEDS!
For example if you just want some family, friend and holiday snaps to either print, use for social media or EBay. You don’t need a high end digital camera. Expect to pay less than £200…see if your phone can be used!
If you want to develop your hobby further, I recommend investing in a high end Digital Camera paying about £400 these can exceed 12 million pixels and produce good quality large prints.
D-SLR (Digital – Single Lens reflex) these are for both serious enthusiasts and professionals. They start from about £600 and can go into £000’s. They offer a great deal of flexibility with regards to lenses and flashes. They also include faster operating times (frames per second) and can be over 25 million pixels.
REMEMBER – Amazing images can be taken on any camera. Iconic photos of the 20th century were not taken on modern cameras!
Pixel – The smallest element of a picture that can be processed. More pixels=More detail.
Memory cards – Required for all digital cameras. They store your photos until you upload or delete them. Bigger cards=More storage. Factor this into your budget.
A business plan is absolutely essential. It also has to be reviewed and changed regularly to ensure it is still relevant!
