Friday Photo Tips – Any Camera Will Do – Brisbane Family Photographer

Camera Tip 1 – Any camera will do

It doesn’t matter what camera you have. Any camera will do! It is better to use whatever camera you have than to never take a picture at all…

My dream camera is still not in my possession but as a photography instructor once said to me, buy the best camera you can afford. This is great advice. Cameras are not cheap and if you are not enlarging a photo to billboard size,  then you don’t need a medium format, digital backed camera worth $18000 (and that doesn’t even include a lens!) You just need a camera that is going to suit your needs. So long as you can print out some photos to put on the wall, into an album or email to family and friends. Photos are lasting memories that should be taken whenever you can.

I love cameras and love having one in my hand. I was always the one taking photos at parties etc.. My first camera was on old Pentax film camera that you had to wind on for every shot. I LOVED IT!

I have progressed on over the years to modern film cameras and then to SLR cameras and digital SLR cameras, but I do own a small happy snap and I’m getting more adventurous on my phone too!

Have a look at my boys over the years and the different camera I have used to photograph them…
