There really is no better feeling than getting yourself geared up to take off for your holidays with your camera. As photographers, a change of scenery and the opportunity to document the amazing world we live awakens the artist in us all.

But if we are not careful our well-earned trip could come at a cost. Camera manufacturers insist that our camera gear is “weather resistant”. And there’s the magic word. “Resistant”. But no camera or lens is truly weatherproof.

What is Creative Photography?

Creative Photography is about discovering new shapes, colors, dynamic range, distortions and maybe even a combination of all of them.

Creative photography can stimulate you to create impressive imagery. It will help take you to the next level.

It is important to remember that even the most expensive kit in the world won’t get you very far if your photography lacks creativity and flair.

The only limit to this kind of photography is your imagination!

Important points to consider when buying new equipment

Tags: , , , , , , , Cameras, Digital, Equipment, Focus, Love, Newsletter, Photo, Photography No comments

One of the questions I receive more often when I answer e-mails for LSP is “What camera should I buy to attend your courses?”.

It is never an easy answer to give because it envolves several particularities and what is right for one might not be right for the other.

I will write about digital cameras only, but if you want to buy analogue, it should not be too different with few less things to worry about.

The first thing you need to define is your budget. Done that it is simpler to look at the options and choose the best one. That is the total budget and should include all essential accessories:

  • memory card
  • extra battery
  • UV filter for your lenses (check the diameter of the lens)

The second thing is to choose between cameras that have MANUAL Exposure Mode. While you might not want to use your camera in manual mode all the time, we expect you to use them manually as part of your course.

They can be:

  • APS Sensor DSLRs
    The most recommended cameras for beginners. They can be affordable and have the option to interchange lenses.
  • Mirrorless Interchangeable-Lens Compact (MILC)
  • Advanced Compacts
  • Super Zoom
  • Full Frame DSLRs
  • Medium Format Cameras

In the previous post about photography books, I confessed my obsession with collecting them, so here is another book from which I have learned a lot:

Teach Yourself Photography from the author Lee Frost.

Lee is regarded as one of the world’s best-selling photography authors. It’s hard to put a figure on just how many copies of his books have sold, but apparently it’s well over half a million.
