Photo Equipment

A great photograph doesn't require expensive equipment these days. These days there are a variety of digital cameras available for every type of photographer; from a camera phone to a DSLR. All of these cameras share similar settings and controls, which makes it easy and intuitive to change up your equipment.

With that said, you should choose your camera based on the amount of control you want over your subject and quality of photograph you'd like to capture. If you wanted to make manual adjustments to your exposure, a camera phone wouldn’t be the best choice. Digital point and shoots and DSLR cameras produce a better quality photograph and allow for more control over your exposure through common (A) Auto and (M) Manual shooting modes.

(A) Auto modes are predetermined exposure for a specific subject

(M) Manual modes are manually set by you to create a unique exposure of your subject.
