Baby Never Looked So Good!

Take your camera off Auto! – Part 1 – The camera July 16, 2011

First the camera,

I often get asked what camera I would recommend, besides a point and shoot. I am a Canon girl so that’s what I suggest. Nikons are comparable but I have heard from others that Canons are more user friendly.  I would recommend Canon EOS Rebel T1i body, or if you have no idea what lens to put on it do the kit with the Canon EF 28-135 f/3.5-5.6 lens. Start with that and as you become more comfortable, then try new lens. If you want to try out equipment beforehand, you can rent cameras and/or lenses from Pictureline.

The Canon Rebel was my first real camera. It was a long long time ago so when I had my Rebel it was a film camera. I actually still have it, I love it too much to say goodbye completely to film photography. A really great feature that the  Rebel T1i has is the ability to record HD video. A two in one camera! The Canon EF 28-135 lens offers a great range. It is a zoom lens that will allow movement when trying to fit a lot of into the frame.

Creative live is doing an awesome online course to help beginners with the Canon Rebel T31.

What kind of camera do you use?
