I am going to start this Photography Tips Series: The Gear by answering (or not) the most common question “what gear should I buy?“.
Being hundreds of models out there I understand that it can be really overwhelming to make a decision.
But I think the most important question is “what kind of photography do you want to make?”.
There are a lot of technical aspects of a camera, and photography in general and I am not going to get extremely into these because it can be a pain in the butt. But I will get into it far enough for you to be able to decide which camera and lenses fill your needs.
If you are a beginner the most important thing is to go out there and practice. Your photography will improve with that. The gear is not taking the picture, you are. So having a better equipment doesn’t mean you’ll take better photos. So keep that in mind. Practice is key. So the first investment doesn’t have to be huge.
