Tutorial tuesday - finding a camera
cole @ doletubbs waits with his dog while out moving and working cows at one of my workshops a couple years back.
so you’re looking to buy a camera? great! i get asked quite often what to get, or what my recommendations are. rather than take you down the philosophical road, you know the one...the best camera you have is, the one in your hand, or, spend money on developing yourself first. no, i’m giving you real world advice! this is for the beginner, the amateur, the one looking to take a little more control.
go to an online retailer, or your local big box store and buy a package dslr. look for one that comes with a long lens, something like 75-300 and a short lens like 18-55. you’ll spend 600-1000 on the kit. they’ll usually pack it full of stuff that looks really cool, know that just because you’re getting more doesn’t mean it’s all good stuff. i use canon products, and i’m not paid to tell you that. it’s where i’ve chosen to invest my money.
know that in a couple years, if you stick to it and you challenge yourself, you’ll grow out of your equipment, that’s ok! i started with one too and gradually moved up. i’m still having a hard time letting go of my first full-frame camera...it’s nearly 10 years old!
taking my recommendations, you will learn the feel of the camera in your hands. you will learn the basics of changing your lenses, you will learn what shooting in manual can do for you. you will grow, you will develop, and hopefully, with serendipity on your side, you will get a taste of creativity, you will feel failure but you won’t fail, and mostly, you will learn about yourself.

You don't have to be perfect to inspire other people. let them be inspired by the way you deal with your struggles, your heartache, and your imperfections.
