What Camera & Equipment Do I Use To Take My Photos?
I've always enjoyed being behind a camera (and in front of it for that matter), capturing a moment in time, a beautiful place, an amazing sunset or landscape but it has always been a hobby. At times I thought of taking it more serious when I was younger, however, in the end, I always ended up being deterred for a variety of reasons.
Since getting my first DSLR my love for photography has grown and grown and I am continuously adding to my camera gear to be able to get the best photos possible for my blog/website, instagram, jobs and everything else.
I am currently using the Nikon D3300. It is a great entry-level DSLR capable of capturing fantastic images and enabling you to learn photography without spending an absolute fortune on gear. (There is a newer version, the Nikon D3400 that has been released since I bought mine.)
The two lens I currently have are the Nikon 18-55mm which came with the camera and the 55-200mm which I picked up a couple of months ago. Between these two lenses, I have the ability to capture a wide range of different photographs and try my hand at different types of photography. I would like to add a macro lens and some fixed focal length lenses eventually.
Having a tripod is crucial in certain situations. As it really helps stabilise your photos especially if you need to shoot at a lower shutter speed. The Amazon Basics tripod is a great affordable product and has never let me down. I also use a Joby grip tripod for my iPhone photography, possibly one of my products I have purchased and I feel lost since I broke it not long back.
A few other bits I have picked up are a Nikon wireless adapter which allows me to sync my photos from my DSLR to my iPhone via a downloadable app. Some ND and UV filters and also hoods for my lenses. The final product is Remote Control Shutter Release, it is very useful when using a tripod to further reduce camera shake without having to physically touch the camera to capture the image.
