The second thing that plays a major contribution to the art you will take out from your camera is your equipment. If you are to buy a new camera or already have one, but just need to invest more in the lens, filters, tripod, external flash or sunshade and this is the section where you will find out more about what you should be looking for.
There will be no brand recommendation, as this is not a webpage for commercials, but instead technical requirements to be looked after will be pin-pointed. If you`re looking into getting pro on the photographic art, there are some basic notions that will make you take the right decision when buying that new piece of equipment.
Choosing between compact and Digital SLR cameras can be tricky at first, but you just need to know a few details that will make up the good decision. Mostly is a big financial decision, but it will definitely influence the quality of the capture. Those big, chunky and heavy cameras are like that simply because there is a mirror mechanism at their core that sits in front of the sensor and reflects the soon to be captured frame into your view finder.
Compact cameras, being smaller, are easier to carry around, but the light reflects right into the sensor, thus making it more susceptible to a short life span. On the other hand, if you buy a DSLR camera, you are prone to spending out much more than the camera itself on expensive lenses. With wider aperture lenses, the shots will have a shallower depth of field and the ultra-wide or fish-eye lens will capture much more degrees as your eyesight does. These are the two ends of the palette available, but there is the middle range, which are the standard, all-round lenses, but which will not do any performance on either macro, wide or telephoto.
