I should have posted this a month ago to help you create your wish list. I’m sorry. Perhaps you still have time to return all of the high watered pj’s, knitted sweaters and game boards to get some dough for some new gear, if you wish.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR STARTERS:
Other things you might be wondering:
- I use Mac. Recently switched from years of PC starting in 2011. The reason being is a nice virus attacked my PC and so I was over it and happily moved to Mac. I like how quick it starts and I would highly encourage if you’re contemplating making the switch to just do it. I know, Apple users are so annoying. They think they’re soooo cool. I’ll tell you now that it’s not about that, but if you want to, do it. If PC works for you, then rock it. It worked for me for years.
- I shoot Canon. Reason being is I started with a Canon Rebel XSi. Yes, that model is totally discontinued and the highest ISO it would go is 1600. So I went straight to a 5D Mark II. Having that body does not make anyone a better shooter but knowing its capabilities and how to find light and such will. If you don’t know that yet, why don’t you take my 4-week online class that starts Jan. 25 for $160?
Yes I’m teaching an awesome online class. This is my third time teaching this, my fourth online class I’ve taught this year, and I love it! (The other class I teach is how to market your photography business which I teach once a year). All of my courses feature LIVE video, and chat room, weekly assignments with professor review, and well, a Facebook group to share assignments and get instant feedback. Oh, and some handouts that will help you reference so you understand photography better.
Hope the list helps, hope you get something black under your Christmas tree that is not coal but a new camera body, lens, or flash. Or maybe a compact flash, even.
Merry Christmas friends!
