Question by Parker: How to learn photography as a hobby?
I’m a 16 year old girl. I’m interested in photography as a hobby, but have done little but take some pictures on a rather inexpensive digital camera. I’ve gotten some Christmas money, and I’m ready to buy a better camera, and I was thinking the GE Power Pro X500. Is this a good camera for a beginner? I’m not sure how far photography will take me.
How can I start learning different photography skills? Thanks for the help.
Answer by Steven
I took photography up a level last year and upgraded to a DSLR, Before I did that, I learned about cameras and why this one costs more than that one, and why lenses cost more than others. Janurary, I my photography business opens :D.
So I wanted to share with you what I learned. I learned that the camera is only a tool, you can by the most expensive camera out there and crappy lenses and you will get horrible photographs. I decided to start out with a Nikon D3100 with the 50mm 1.8 AF-S lens. Instead of going to a full frame camera that costs $ 3 grand, I went with a cropped body (1.5x) that allows me to get extra zoom without accessories so I could a better lens (glass) to start out with.
It depends on what type of photography you are getting into. I see the one you listed is what many people would call a snap shop camera. You choose a setting and go. I would recommend saving a bit more and jump at a entry level DSLR (about 400-600 dollars) and a lens (200-300 dollars) additional. You will be happier if you did. I shoot landscapes mainly, nature animals second, and portraits 3rd. The camera came with an 18-55mm lens, which is great for inside photographs and landscapes and can hold up to portraits. From there you can purchase the additional lens you would need. Don’t skip on the lens cost.
This camera lasted me a year until I determined I needed a better camera because of the low light situations I am in. The nikon d3100 can’t shoot so well in low light without getting a lot of grain unless a flash is used. I’m upgrading to a better body (for a better sensor), and that’s the only reason I’m upgrading.
If you are at the price range of 200 or less. I would highly recommend you saving for an entry DSLR, the photographs are night and day from a point and shoot and a DSLR.
