5 Things Every Beginner Photographer Needs

As a beginner photographer, you need to have a few things in order to get started. A camera is an obvious necessity, but you also need a tripod, light meter, and some kind of flash. You should also invest in some good quality lens filters and a camera bag. If you want to get serious about photography, you will need to buy a DSLR camera body and some better lenses. However, even with just a point-and-shoot camera, you can produce great results if you know how to use your equipment properly.

The Nifty 50. A new lens can take your photography to new levels but a good fast lens is so expensive right?

There are a lot of things that a beginner photographer needs to know in order to take good photos. One of the most important things is having a good lens. A fast lens is important because it allows you to take photos in low light situations and capture fast moving objects. The problem is that these lenses are very expensive and most beginner photographers can’t afford them.

Don’t despair though, there are still some great options available to you. The Nifty Fifty is a term used to describe a 50 m m f/1.8 lens. These lenses are relatively cheap (you can find them for around $100) and they offer excellent image quality. They’re also fast enough for most situations that you’ll encounter as a beginner photographer.

If you’re serious about photography and you want to eventually upgrade to a better lens, the Nifty Fifty is a great place to start. It will help you learn the basics and it won’t break the bank.

A Good Memory Card

If you have a DSLR or mirror less camera, you’ll need a high-speed memory card that can keep up with the fast write speeds of your camera. These types of cards are typically labelled as Class 10 or UHS-I (Ultra High Speed). They’re more expensive than other types of cards, but they’re worth it if you want to avoid dropped frames and missed shots.

If you plan on shooting video with your DSLR or mirror less camera, then you’ll need an even faster memory card. Video requires large file sizes and high write speeds, so look for cards labelled as UHS-II (Ultra High Speed II) or V60/V90. These cards are more expensive than regular UHS-I cards, but they’re worth it if you want to shoot smooth 4 k video without dropped frames.

If you have a point-and-shoot camera or action cam, then you won’t need as fast of a memory card since these cameras don’t have the same high write speeds as DSLRs and mirror less cameras. A regular Class 10 memory card will be fine for most people’s needs. However, if you plan on shooting Full HD video with your point-and-shoot camera or action cam, then consider getting a higher capacity UHS-I Class 10 card so that you can store more footage without having to constantly delete files to make room for new ones.

A Good Camera Bag

There are a lot of different camera bags on the market these days, so it can be tricky to choose the right one. But if you keep these things in mind, you should be able to find a great bag that will serve you well for years to come.

A Good Manual Flash

A good manual flash is an important tool for any beginner photographer. It can help you take better pictures in low light situations and can also be used to fill in shadows in your photos. There are many different types of manual flashes available on the market, so it is important to choose one that will work well with your camera.
