It all started with an entry-level camera body. And two small lenses. They came in a kit, which I bought on sale at a local NYC Best Buy store. It was nothing fancy. But it was all I needed to learn the ins and outs of a DSLR camera. To learn how to shoot in ‘Manual’ mode so that I could have more control over my camera and to capture the most beautiful light. To learn how to use interchangeable lenses that would allow me to create different kinds of images.
And, oh, how far my camera bag has come!
Photography equipment is expensive, and more often than not, I’ll find myself wondering… “Is it reeeaaallly worth investing in a new lens or upgrading my camera?”. But there’s a moment when, after months of research and deep contemplation, I’ve found myself saying: “It’s time to invest in my growth and in my business”. And I’ve never regretted it.
The contents of my camera bag have changed significantly ever since that day I purchased my first kit. It’s now full of equipment that allows me to produce the bright, colorful and creamy yet crisp images that I love to deliver to my clients. I am extremely fortunate that I get to add new family members to my camera bag each month!
