If you are based around London and you’d like to learn the art – or more simply meet up for a session – please feel free to get in touch via my Contacts page.
Here’s a little piece of advice:
- If you are getting into photography, any entry level camera will do. After all, the first step is to learn the “triangle” (ISO, shutter speed, aperture).
- Don’t get obsessed with your gear! Don’t rush into buying any piece of kit just for the sake of it!
- Start off with a camera body and a kit lens (typically a zoom covering 18-55mm range).
- Make sure you buy a lens and sensor cleaning kit. You need to look after your camera.
- Get yourself a tripod (a must have for long exposures and night photography).
- Once you know the basics, then buy a prime lens (a fixed focal lens e.g. a 35mm would be perfect for street photography or even portraits).
- Neutral density (ND) filters and all the accessories can follow at a later date!
Post scriptum. Camera bodies are important but please save up your money for top notch lenses. A good lens mounted on a mediocre camera will always yield better results than mounting a cheap lens on a pro camera!
