Still can’t find what you want? Check out the FAQ below. As you can imagine, I receive a lot of emails with questions and my 3 children keep me quite busy.

We have an extensive series on camera lenses that you definitely will want to check out. We also wrote one on what lenses to use for weddings. I realize we often just want someone to tell us what to use but honestly, it all boils down to your style. What lens I may use in a situation may not be the lens that fits your style. I would recommend playing with different lenses or even renting one to see which fits your style the best.
Due to the amount of emails I get requesting for personal critiques of theirs work or website, I’m not able to do that. However, in our Ultimate Intro to Photography workshop, we do offer personal video critiques each week of your work. You may want to consider joining us in our next run if you would like us to critique your work.
I wish it was a simple answer to that question. It all depends on what you want to do with that camera, what your budget is and how you like the camera. I suggest heading to your local camera store or big box store that carries cameras and play with them. If you are going to shoot in manual mode ask how to change the ISO, shutter speed and aperture. Do you like where the buttons are? Do you like the feel and weight of the camera? Should you get a Nikon or Canon? That is all up to you. If you are looking to upgrade, I’ll tell you the same thing I tell everyone who asks. What can the new camera do that your current camera can’t? Don’t upgrade because some photographer that you like has that camera and therefore you think you will get better photos. You won’t. The camera doesn’t take those amazing photos, it is the talented photographer. Before you upgrade, figure out why you want to upgrade. Have you out grown your camera? You know it’s limits and therefore you know exactly what you are looking for in a new camera? If not, it’s not time to upgrade. Spend that money on a class or a nicer lens.
You can see what bags and gear I use as well as example images created with each of the lenses I own.
